From UNITED KINGDOM •
Cherry Lena is an alternative Pop R&B singer-songwriter from Montreal, Canada. Having first captured the attention of audiences with her performances on The Voice Quebec in 2018, she has since been making a name for her stunning combination of warm R&B tones and subtle 1950's jazz vocals. Her music is rich and timeless, resulting in a sound which effortlessly displays the musician’s undeniable talent and passionate delivery.
Her latest single “Love-Bombed And Ghosted” is a soulful track fusing lo-fi R&B and jazz with a pop sensibility. Through a flow of dynamics she gives the space to adore each pluck of gritty riffs, with punchy basslines and percussion adding both sass and power. The single touches on the type of person who feeds off others' affection, just to run and hide when they are scared to feel something beyond the shallow waters of ghosting. The empowering artist shares, “It's about a boy I met in June. I fell hard and fast. He showered me with love and affection and then simply vanished from my life. It hurt my pride the most. I felt like such a fool since he was never even mine.”
Produced and mixed by producer duo Pops & Poolboy, “Love-Bombed And Ghosted” features uplifting and infectious melodies which contrast the sombre lyrical theme. The songwriter explains, “Although the subject of the song is sad and emotional, the melodies are bubbly and catchy because it portrays the mood of the day I recorded it. At that exact moment, we were just kids having fun and creating and I was feeling grateful to be able to share and create.”
Racking up an impressive amount of streams on Spotify, the artist continues to win over the hearts of listeners across the globe. Her cover of Nina Simone's “Feeling Good” in collaboration with Apashe has received more than six million views on YouTube alone. Proving to be a force to be reckoned with, expect to see a lot more from Cherry Lena.
