Shura's New Single 'What's It Gonna Be' Fuckin Rules 

British singer-songwriter/producer Shura has steadily pumped out an array of near-perfect pop tracks over the past few years, but her latest single, “What’s It Gonna Be,” twists the tapered, yearning nostalgia of songs like “Touch” and “2Shy” into a condensed, sophisticated three minute vocalization of the best ‘80s…
