Shura has impressed us with the singles she has dropped this year, but when she was younger, it seemed like playing professional soccer was going to be her career plan. In a recent interview, she revealed that she gave up playing for Manchester City women’s team in favor of pursuing a career in music.

“I made the decision that I could either go outside in the freezing cold in the wind and rain and get muddy, or just stay inside and be a rock star,” she said. “I didn’t want to physically hurt any more. I’d be in bandages and limping.”

Watch Shura’s video for “White Light” below.
