Where Entertainment meets Reality

Artist to Watch: Cherae Leri

The modern RnB game isn’t on life-support, it just requires a bit of digging. Kansas City, Missouri, born and Houston, TX raised singer, songwriter, model, and entrepreneur,Cherae Leri, gifts listeners pure, authentic, sultry RnB vibes with a contemporary release date. Her debut, featureless album The Pain That Sex Brings released back in June of this year and topped iTunes and Amazon music charts. This project incorporated nostalgic, seductive RnB, grown and sexy tendencies and intrepid inclinations amid an infusion of soul, trap, hip-hop and alternative genres. The album channels a 1990’s Janet Jackson aura and is imbued in lessons learned, tempting wordplay and unapologetic womanhood.

Today she releases the official Arma Benoit directed visual for one of the fan-favored records “Vibe Wave Mood,” a record that shimmers in inspirational tides and serves as an irrefutable anthem for the dauntless, hard-working, multifaceted, female bosses of the world. The stunning visual impeccably conveys her lyrical imagery of a gorgeous, bag-chasing, CEO as she takes viewers on a classy ride through mansion, beach, biker and helicopter scenes – a true to life view of Leri’s upper echelon style and vision. The Queen of TrapNb serves several stellar Lavell Witherspoon styled looks from the likes of London Couture and Fordam Rowe. This starry visual bathes in the key features of a self-labeled vibe, wave, mood – class, beauty, and an unparalleled ambition.  

Let this record carry and personify your bag-chasing, independent, CEO tendencies; it’s an anthem for the stiletto wearing hustlers.
