Would you like a little back in time ? Yes ?! I knew that. Ok, so I’ve you heard before about the girls group Cherish ? This group was especially popular in the middle of the 2000’s. It’s a group of four sisters : Fallon, Felisha, Farrah & Neosha. Their most famous songs are : « Do it To it », « Unappreciated » & « Killa » extracted from the tracklist of the movie Step Up 2 (editor’s note: Sexy Dance 2, French title). Probably that if you’re under 20, you won’t see who I’m talking about. Nevermind, the very first album of Cherish is for me one underrated masterpiece ! Seriously, this album untitled Unappreciated is unfortunately really unappreciated. So today, I decided to make a quite short article to talk about this almost 15 years old album, which during my pre-adolescence, my teenagehood and now, still is regularly playing in my streaming platform.
When I was a kid, I used to listen to a lot of US music and artists. I was especially mesmerized (and still am) by : Beyoncé, the Destiny’s Child, Ciara, Rihanna and for the more nostalgic ones : Kat Deluna and Alesha Dixon. The D-day, by the d-day I mean the day I first heard about the female group it was in 2006. I was in my mom’s car when I first heard « Do it To it ». I don’t know why, I first thought it was a Ciara song. However, when the broadcaster finally say the name of the artist, she introduced Cherish. And that’s where it all started. Just with one song.
Once I’ve asked my mom for their album and that she has decided to offered it to me. When I first heard the songs, I instantly fell in love with each of them. I instantly liked this album. Now that I think about it, Unappreciated is quite a faithful kind of old school R&B and Hip-Hop album. At that time, I was unable to constate it because I was very young and that the us music is not my basic reference. I’m from west-indies so R&B is not the first type of music that parents introduce to their children. However, at that time I was able, because of the R&B I was used to listen, to notice the different. And I think that it is that difference that make this cd so special to me.
Here a list of my most-streamed songs.
- SHOW AND TELL
- MOMENT IN TIME
- DO IT TO IT
- THAT BOI
- FOOL 4 YOU
- STOP CALLING ME
