NEW MUSIC: FLETCHER | CHERRY (FEATURING HAYLEY KIYOKO)
Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter FLETCHER has joined forces with trailblazing pop star Hayley Kiyoko for a breathlessly fun new single called “Cherry” via Capitol Records. “Cherry” finds the two fearlessly honest artists serenading the object of their crushed-out lust. Co-written by FLETCHER, Hayley, and Mary Weitz (Normani, Remi Wolf), “Cherry” is a sugary-sweet piece of pop perfection spiked with seductive wordplay. With production from FLETCHER’s repeat collaborator Jonah Shy, the track unfolds in dizzying grooves and bright synth bursts as FLETCHER shows off her effortless vocal flow and supremely confident lyrics. Hayley introduces at the second chorus, adding to the song’s ultra-vivid storytelling and irresistibly flirtatious mood. As the two trade-off vocals, “Cherry” ultimately captures the carefree thrill of surrendering to pure pleasure. "I had such a blast working on Cherry with FLETCHER," Kiyoko added. "We’ve been trying to collaborate for years, and this song couldn’t be more perfect for us! I hope the fans love it and can blast it while feeling flirty, playful, and free." "Cherry" is part of a great end of the year for queer girl pop. Not only have we had FLETCHER’s other single "girls girls girls" (which cleverly reclaims Katy Perry’s queerbaiting breakout song "I Kissed a Girl"), but we’ve also gotten some all-time classics from MUNA and Zolita.
