Serving us a few qualities of what any individual can going through during a tragedy, Cherri V touches on the need for space and time in new single “Leave Me Be”.
In this new single, Cherri gets back in touch with her Jamaican roots as she remains unapologetic when she explains why she has a wall up and needs her privacy while she addresses her own personal battles.
“When I run into the concubines / Sorry if I let grace show a likkle bad face, just what history designs / I know you smell this love all over me, yeah / Anybody can wink wink, champagne clink clink, not anyone can hold a dime, and / One little got it girl / Living in this hard shell / Hiding behind the fact I’m scared, they’ll try and I’ll tell tell / I spend some tragedies, that gimme insecurities / So sorry that I don’t come across like I’m here,” she sings.
In the premiere of the track via CocoaDiaries Cherri V explained: “I recently visited Thailand to perform at Nikki beach. Before flying off I tweeted asking for producers to get in touch as I wanted to collaborate and form some new relationships creatively. One producer in particular, Joey Stickz, sent me a folder of music and I was instantly excited by his sound. I wrote the song “Leave Me Be” to one of his instrumentals while I was in Thailand. The song is quite personal as it touches on some of my characteristics, specifically, the fact that I can be quite an introvert and this can sometimes come across as me being guarded. It’s somewhat of an apology, an explanation and a cry for acceptance of my true self all wrapped up in one song.”
This single follows up the UK based artist previous released “Without You” earlier this year as she continues to prep her forthcoming album Brown Eyed Soul to be released later this year.
As we wait for its official visuals said to be released later this week (Friday, July 7th), take a listen to Cherri V’s latest single “Leave Me Be” produced by Joey Stickz available now on most digital media retailers and streamers:
