This album may be the first time many are introduced to Cherri V, but for those that know – she has been around since the MySpace (dot com) days and has a long back catalogue.
However in this latest release its all about the new, and over 8 diverse tracks she showcases the full gamut of her lyrical and vocal abilities exploring the peaks and throughs of relationships.
It starts off with “Leave Me Be” a summery track with soft reggae influences, perfect for cruising on a summer evening with the windows down. The summer vibe continues with Runaway where she switches things up for a more afro bet style.
Things get a bit trappy on Snapchat Mistress, as she gets a bit more militant, describing catching her man receiving naughty pictures on Snapchat.
Things You Do is a solid piece of pop RnB, which could easily slot into radio daytime playlists.
The second part half of the EP is dominated by slower tracks starting with the mid tempo slow jam Lock Down/Prisoner then moving on to Situationship , a duet between her and singer Sincerely Wilson, Brown Eyed Soul (Interlude) with vocals by RnB veteran Terri Walker.
Finally the album picks with Swimming, produced by XVRBLCK who seems to be on everything in UK R&B these days.
Overall this album well produced and Cherri V is flawless with the vocals. Definitely a stand out release for 2018. You have no reason not to stream this album today and keep it on repeat. We cant wait for Vol. 2!
