The Sheffield – real name Rebecca Lucy Taylor – will head to America next March in support of her critically-acclaimed second album, ‘Prioritise Pleasure’, which came out on October 22.
“Much like Robbie and Cheryl before me, it’s time to take this chart topping talent stateside,” Taylor wrote on social media. “Looking forward to never coming back and having a house of Gucci / star is born trajectory and or coming back with my tail between my legs.”
