“This song is a sort of letter to myself,” Cherry Lena says of latest track “Toxic Woman”. The former The Voice Quebec contestant penned it during a challenging period last year. “Whenever I feel down, I have this strange sensation that I’m stuck in an eternal web of negativity,” the Montreal native explains. “Losing my sense of time, it’s like my sadness overpowers every part of my being and I feel incapable of relating to others.” In such times, she leans on previous, more buoyant versions of herself, with “Toxic Woman” providing an insight into the internal dialogue that guides her.

The entrancing pop-R&B cut draws you in with its enigmatic, sweeping synths before the lullaby of broken harp chords leads into Lena’s evocative topline. “Til I’m your ghost / no one gets to come close to you,” she sings as she further proves her songwriting dexterity extends far beyond melodic components.

Cherry Lena’s potential as a leading alt-pop voice of tomorrow hasn’t gone unnoticed, with the artist’s cover of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”, for instance, garnering over eight million Youtube views, alone. Over 300k monthly Spotify listeners exemplify her reliability for consistently producing quality work, and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
