uk soul singer rukhsana merrise drops an anti-capitalist anthem with her high-energy single “money”

May 22, 2017

Born and raised in West London, singer-songwriter Rukhsana Merrise’s folk, hip hop and soul influences are clear, but fused into her own sound that is truly unique. The artist’s single “Money” combines her distinctively powerful voice with a textured but stripped back acoustic production for a timely political message. The track opens with the lyrics: “I find we try to figure it out / Even when in doubt / The truth be told in time / Can’t save / Earning minimum wage / Everybody’s a slave / But the change will keep you blind,” leading up to a towering chorus proclaiming the radical desire to do away with money altogether. Check out the high-energy track below!:
