In 2008, Cheri released her debut album In And Out of Love, with its Ryan Leslie-produced leading single, “I Love You”, featuring Yung Joc and Jim Jones, and then sort of faded to black.
Well – that’s behind her now. Cheri Coke (her new name) and Melo X just released her latest work, “The Garden of Eden”, a song that will appear on her upcoming project, X/Coke.
Slightly a different twist from what we’re used to hearing from Cheri, it’s perfect for R&B lovers who have swayed to the likes of newbies such as Frank Ocean and The Weeknd.
It’s not the same, though. Cheri’s coined it: “Nu Wave Trill Sex."
Check out some behind-the-scenes footage of Cheri & Melo X working the new music:
X/COKE will be available for free download on Tuesday, June 19.
