MUSIC: Neneh Cherry – Everything

by Reginald Duvivier


Neneh Cherry is the the original prototype for the arty urbanite. She was wearing funky clothes and singing/rapping sharp sociopolitical songs (looking cool while doing it) when flattops and african print pants were in style the FIRST time around. While she’s always been involved in musical projects, this is the first time in almost TWO decades she’s planning on releasing a solo album. Four Tet produced her album and you figure his beats would easily overpower on this first single, “Everything” she slaps it around and makes it her pet.
