Review.- Neneh Marianne Karlsson Cherry (born March 10, 1964 in Stockholm) better known as Neneh Cherry, is a Swedish singer, songwriter, rapper, DJ, and occasional broadcaster. Cherry blended hip hop with other influences, and experienced some mainstream success with several of her recording.
She born to a Sierra Leonean father, Amahdu Jah (a drummer) and a Swedish painter/textile artist mother, Monika Karlsson, known as Moki Cherry. Her siblings include the singers Titiyo Jah and Eagle-Eye Cherry. Her step-father Don Cherry raised her since birth so Neneh took his name on.
Cherry lived the first years of her life in the small Swedish town Hässleholm.
Soon Mokie met Don and the family accompanied him on his tours through Europe and North America. In the early 1970s the Cherry family nestled into a small apartment on East 9th Street in New York City. Moki still lives in New York : either in Garden City or in a loft in Queens New York just across the East River from East 60th Street. Moki has exhibitions in major museums and galleries in New York and Stockholm.
In 1984, Cherry and then-husband Bruce Smith ( drummer Rip Rig & Panic ) had their first daughter Naima.
Cherry and Smith divorced in 1984. Three years later she met producer Cameron McVey at Heathrow airport. Cherry and Cameron were en route to Japan as fashion models as part of London Designer Ray Petri's Buffalo Posse. Cherry proposed and the two married in 1990. Together they have daughters Tyson (1989) and Mabel (1996). Their relationship is also work-related, as Cameron produced and co-wrote "Raw Like Sushi" ; together they have supported a variety of heavyweight British acts; and they are in group cirKus together.
Many members of her family are musicians or artists. Her half-brother Eagle Eye Cherry is also a musician of some international fame.
She began a solo career with "Stop the War", a protest song about the Falkland Islands. She also worked with The The and musician Cameron McVey (a.k.a. Booga Bear), who co-wrote most of her debut album Raw Like Sushi, and whom she would eventually marry. She was intimately involved in the Bristol Urban Culture scene, working as an arranger on Massive Attack's Blue Lines album and helping out in various other ways in the scene. Famously, she gave birth while Shara Nelson was recording the vocals for the album in the same house. Robert Del Naja and Andrew Vowles of Massive Attack had in turn contributed to Raw Like Sushi.
Her single "Buffalo Stance" was an international blockbuster and she caused controversy when she performed the song - complete with gyrating choreography - on UK television show Top Of The Pops while 7-8 months pregnant. Buffalo Stance eventually peaked at number 3 on the UK pop charts and number 1 on the American Dance charts, also number 21 at Australia, 14 in NZ and 2 in Germany. It becoming one of 1988's biggest club anthems.
More singles released between 1988 and 1990 included the slower "Manchild," "Kisses On The Wind," "Heart," and "Inna City Mama." She also found success with "I've Got U Under My Skin," a dramatic reworking of the Cole Porter song, which appeared on the Red Hot + Blue AIDS fundraising album. Lyme disease kept her away from the limelight until 1992.
Her second solo outing was Homebrew. Led by the single "Money Love", it was not as commercially successful as its predecessor, but received great critical acclaim. The album met with some success on the dance charts (with "Buddy X," which would become an even bigger hit years later in a remix by Dreem Teem) and on college radio (with "Trout," a duet with Michael Stipe). The album also included a contribution from Gang Starr.
In 2004, Cherry became a grandmother when Naima had son Louis Clyde Flynn Love.
