Sarsha has also been featured on Acclaim Magazine, Earmilk, BLACK Magazine, Grazia Italy, Hypetrak and more thanks to her soulful vocals and striking looks. Her solo single “Let’s Dance”, (prod. Marley Cassette) debuted on The Edge 96.1 last month, before being selected by Apple Music for an exclusive position on their The A-List: R&B playlist highlighting the hottest R&B of the moment.
