The R&B songstress Cheryll returns with her new song ‘Lovers & Friends’.
The production on this song is kept very simple, giving listeners a chance to focus on the singer’s voice.
This song has everything we love about traditional R&B music. Great vocals, beautiful harmonies and killer adlibs.
‘Lovers & Friends’ tells the story of two people in a relationship who are drifting apart. The singer details the gradual breakdown of the relationship, placing emphasis on the frustration stemming from her love interest’s lack of effort.
Drawing her influences from the likes of Aaliyah and Ashanti, Cheryll is an aspiring young singer. Passionate, fiery yet crowd pleasing. Her inate love for music started from at a young age, fast forward to the age of 18 she began on her songwriting adventure. Cheryll boasts an intense soul warming voice, using her words to express her deep life experiences.
“Music is always something I’ve loved, i really want people to hear my music and love it as much as I do!”
This song is no exception.
Songs like this will have you missing a partner you never had – oh the feels.
It’s that old school R&B with a modern urban twist. My favourite part of the song is unsurprisingly the hook with what sounds like a 4-part harmony. Simple, catchy and melodic. What more could you ask for?
