A breakout star in Sweden, Cherrie sent a shockwave through Sweden in 2015 with her track Tabanja, picturing the shootings and gang violence in Rinkeby, the suburb of Stockholm where she grew up. Since then she’s released a praised debut album, won a Swedish Grammy and had Stormzy drop some rhymes on her track.
Cherrie’s sound and style are largely influenced by female R&B artists of the late ’90s and early ’00s, her career really went of in 2017 when she stormed the scene with the viral video for her R&B cut “163 För Evigt.” The song, whose title translates to “163 Forever,” is an ode to Rinkeby, the Stockholm suburb she moved to from Finland at the age of 10.
Sky's the limit when it comes to Cherrie's career and her musical talent. Her Icelandic live debut is a true honor for Sónar Reykjavík.
