Shae Universe

Since bursting onto the scene in 2017, Shaé Universe has made waves in the UK, West

gospel singer and her father a pastor, Shaé weaves her spirituality, faith and sensuality
through her work. Shaé is an artist who can both sing and rap, has been co-signed by the

Vogue, NME, Highsnobriety, Complex, Wonderland, The Line of Best Fit, NOTION,
DUMMY, TRENCH, GRM, Mixtape Madness, 2022 is set to be Shae’s biggest year yet.
