Sónar by Day - SonarXS
Ibiza, the island where Aleesha Rose was born 19 years ago is now too small to contain her. With her sights set on mainland, and international domination, 2019 is set to be the breakout year for this young urban artist with the style, attitude and songs to make it happen. Produced by $kyhook and Innercut, “Peligrosa” might be her biggest banger to date, but it’s by no means her only potential hit. “This Ain’t no Love Song”, for example shows off her R&B chops, while “Come and See This” could easily co-exist on a playlist alongside PartyNextDoor and Tinashe. Early plaudits as “the spanish Rhianna” don’t seem to faze her, or really do justice to an artist who is developing at such a breakneck pace. There’s no better time to get aboard the Aleesha train. Next stop: SonarXS.
