Remember Cheri Dennis? Of course you do. Formerly one (of many) very talented Bad Boy Records artists that just never seemed to get the push they deserved. 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.
