Despite her reputation for witty bangers, she's never been afraid to talk about real life. Last year, in an interview with The Gay Times, she came out as pansexual. "My ex manager told me coming out wasn't a good look or the right move for me or my career," she told the publication. "I remember it made me feel so depressed because I wasn't being allowed to be my authentic self and honestly, speaking from experience, I understand how it can make someone feel trapped, give you low self-esteem and anxiety, because you can't fully be yourself."
Her own mental health experiences are something she's never been afraid to make music about, and it's a lyrical topic we can expect more from on the coming album. "For me, mental health is a massive thing that we need to draw attention to," says Leshurr. "A lot of the artists in the industry are going through it, I can see it, they don't need to tell me that. For me personally, I can't be the one that holds it in, because it starts to really put me in that sunken place, like in the film Get Out. It puts you in a place where you feel like you can't do it anymore. I have to express (in my music), because if I don't express then it is going to keep me down. That is how I heal."
Right now, she's also working on a book. It won't be one of those music biography books that feels so ghost written it's almost haunted. She's doing it herself. "It's about me, my journey, and how I got to the place I'm in right now," she explains. "It's going to be about believing in yourself, and trying to empower young females. That's it."
