[Single] Cherokee – Goddess @cherokeeisback

Published

on

Born in Harlem and raised in Brooklyn, Cherokee knew from a very early age that music was a part of every fiber of her being. With a natural affinity for creating and playing music, she began writing poetry and implementing melodies at the early age of 12. By the age of 14, aided by a very patient mother who allowed the kids to play loud music in the house – Cherokee had formed her first band, which played a lot of R&B and soul music. By 16 years of age she was part of a R&B duo and was signed to Morgan Creek Records. But, it certainly didn’t stop there.
Always wanting to take her love of music to the next level, Cherokee moved to Los Angeles where she signed on with manager Herb Trawick, who also managed Brian McKnight at the time. He took his artist to RCA in 1999 and landed a production deal.Cherokee was truly on her way to stardom.Shortly thereafter, her debut album “I Love You…Me” hit the mass market and she was performing on hit shows such as “Soul Train”, “Motown Live.” and touring US, Japan & UK. The mainstream media took notice and she was featured in Rolling Stone, Jet, Vogue, Esquire, Billboard, the New York Times and many other enormous media outlets. She was also featured in a large ad campaign for the popular clothing outlet the Gap, which saw her plastered on billboards across nearly a dozen states with a huge six story billboard in Harlem. Cherokee was also featured in a GAP commercial in which she delivered a sexy guitar interpretation of ACDC’s Back in Black of which she had to learn to play guitar.

Her highly anticipated follow up record, “Soul Parade” had her working with a myriad of industry heavyweights including Outkast, Bilal, Jill Scott, Rasaan Patterson, AnthonyHamilton, Floetry and Musiq. This was going to be the record to catapult her into superstardom. But, Cherokee was never able to release the album, which featured “Nectarine,” a song she performed with Andre 3000 of Outkast (the video is still on YouTube). Despite the desire of consumers to hear the follow up to “I Love You…Me,” the division of RCA responsible for releasing the album ended up folding. She teamed up with L.A. Reid to complete the project and to release the album through Arista Records. However, the completed album was never to be released and now can be found bootlegged on eBay for as much as $290.00!

Growing tired of the music business and the grind that goes along with it, Cherokee decided to take some time off. She married Grammy Award-winning mix engineer NealPogue and gave birth to her daughter Dream in 2004 and adopted her son D’sani at age 4 in 2011.

She was very determined to focus her time on her family and proudly did so for about 13 years. But of course, she couldn’t put music down forever. She started using social media outlets such as Myspace, Facebook, twitter & Instagram to connect with her audience to get a feel for their interest in a new Cherokee album. What she found was that there was definitely interest. A lot of interest. She delved back into her passion and has been writing and recording. With many urging her to get back into the studio and record her next album, she wants the music world to know that Cherokee is coming back. The goal is for her newest EP to be released in 2018. So, get ready for the single Goddess.

(Video) Star2 x FG Fame – “I Don’t Like You” @Star2Official

Ka-ren refugee pop artists Star2 and FG Fame release the new single and music video for “I Don’t Like You”. The Ka-ren are a minority ethnic group from Myanmar who have faced persecution and forced displacement. Star2 and Fame’s music brings their stories of exile and perseverance to a wider audience.

Since 2023, Star2 has been visiting the Thai refugee camp where he was born and working with other Ka-ren artists. “I Don’t Like You” from Star2 and Fame highlights the gossip and drama that often surfaces in the face of young, unrequited love. The song is about a determined girl who tries to insist she is the girlfriend of Fame and then later, Star2. She brags to her friends and spreads rumors about her imaginary relationships, but they both let her down gently while setting the record straight. The music video, filmed on location in vibrant Bangkok, Thailand, matches captivating strings and infectious beats of the song with lush, colorful backdrops. The result is an infectious, action-packed saga highlighting the talents of these Ka-ren artists who have come together to make music despite the hardships they have faced.

Star2 reveals, “Fame likes to sing romantic songs and so do I! “I Don’t Like You” is fun and light. We had a good time filming the video in Bangkok. Ka-ren artists are underrated. The world will soon see their talent.”

Star2 has received high acclaim from tastemaker media including Ones to Watch, Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam, GQ, BET, Lyrical Lemonade, and HotNewHipHop. He is executive producing an upcoming album which will feature FG Fame along with other Ka-ren artists from around the world set for release in 2025.
