After closing out last year with two stellar stripped live visuals of her 2017 singles ‘Without You’ and ‘Leave Me Be’, an acclaimed performance at the pre-MOBO Award Show, and strong support from BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, The Beat London, The 405, Clash Music and Earmilk, among others, CHERRI V begins the new year with her brand new single ‘Swimming’, featuring Birmingham rapper RoxXxan, premiered exclusively by DJ Target on BBC 1Xtra.
With the release of ‘Swimming’, the British Soul songstress is drawing even closer to the release of her highly anticipated Brown Eyed Soul project. Alongside previously released collaborations with Harmony Samuel (Ariane Grande, Chris Brown, Fifth Harmony), and Hypertone (Snakehips, Jessie J, Alesha Dixon), fans and critics can expect new music with the likes of Da Beatfreakz (Chris Brown, Nadia Rose, Sean Paul), and Fanatix (Giggs, Chip, Fekky, Stefflon Don), among others.
Produced by XVR BLCK, who has previously worked with SNE, Bobii Lewis, Basheba, Lylo Gold and Kojey Radical, to mention a few, ‘Swimming’ sees CHERRI V pushing the envelope musically, as she adds something new to her repertoire, with this experimental R&B musical backdrop, backed by synth piano arrangements and underpinned by Cherri’s amazing vocal performance and delivery, with RoxXxan providing the perfect guest rap verse to complement the record.
Speaking about the inspiration for ‘Swimming’, CHERRI V says, “It’s about attraction, it’s about those daydreams you have about that special person. It’s about them persistently roaming around in your thoughts… way beyond your control… slightly obsessive lol. It’s about wanting to be alone, away from the noise, prying eyes and social media – just two people getting lost in each other’s company”.

Swedish-born, Nashville-based nu-R&B, singer-songwriter ANDREAS MOSS unveiled his new single, ‘Stuck in My Feelings’, last Friday via Curb/Warner.
Following highly praised singles, ‘Thinking About You’ and ‘Stop Me’, actively gaining upwards of 2.8 million Spotify streams following their debut on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist, the new cut – Written and co-produced by Moss himself with fellow collaborators Sam Tinnesz and Joe Williams – has been mixed by Grammy Award-winner Serban Ghenea, also responsible for the mixes of The Weeknd ‘Starboy’ and Ariana Grande ‘Dangerous Woman’.
ANDREAS MOSS‘ powerhouse vocals draw comparison to fellow songwriter Rag’n’Bone Man, while his music is influenced by the same blend of nu-R&B and neon-bright arrangements that made ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’ and ‘Starboy’ so successful.
Growing up in a musical household, Moss followed in his parents’ steps and became a travelling musician. By age nine, Moss was on tour, singing gospel and playing the piano. Before he reached his teens, he was already part of a multi-disciplinary artists’ collective, where he switched between mediums; from ghost-writing to directing music videos and short films. It’s no wonder Curb Records appointed him to lead their newly created pop division, where the gifted songwriter has control over co-writing and vocal producing of the label’s new pop signings.
Following his performance at this year’s SXSW and The Great Escape festival, ‘Stuck In My Feelings’ is tipped to be ANDREAS MOSS’ most enticing offering yet which may well cement his status in the international music scene.

Radiating an abundance of soul and endearing, yet playful reality, singer and songwriter CHERRI V released the visual for her single ‘Without You’.
Produced by the Grammy award-winning UK producer, Harmony Samuels, who is responsible for a catalogue of hits from Fifth Harmony, Ariana Grande, Kelly Rowland and Chip, CHERRI V’s velvety tones echo over a piano-led instrumental that is laced with percussion allowing her powerful voice and emotion to burst through the seams.
Painting a vivid picture on the construct of a relationship, the visuals are presented in a sprightly and flirtatious form which capture the mischievous and lighthearted aspect of CHERRI V‘s charming character.
The accomplished songstress, recognised for her striking, fiery red hairstyles, has always kept it real with her straight talking lyrics. Unafraid and eloquent in her ability to discuss the truths of her life and her battles, she has previously been ‘Cherri-picked’ to work and perform alongside Wiley, Dawn Richard and Lethal Bizzle, with whom she celebrated the top 20 hit ‘The Drop’.
Opening the page on a new chapter, ‘Without You’ opens the gateway on CHERRI V‘s journey to releasing her captivating album ‘Brown Eyed Soul’, which is set to be the most personal and autobiographical project to date. Having nurtured, matured and cultivated her music for the album, it is set to tell a story its entirety via her compellingly rich and dynamic voice.

This album is her most personal and autobiographical project to date, which is why she wants to present the whole story as a complete album rather than an EP.
