FLETCHER PREMIERES BLISSED-OUT NEW SINGLE “CHERRY” FEAT. HAYLEY KIYOKO
Co-written by FLETCHER, Hayley, and Mary Weitz (Normani, Remi Wolf), “Cherry” is a sugary-sweet piece of pop perfection spiked with seductive wordplay (e.g., “Your body’s got me outta my mind/Girl, I’m taking it over”). With production from FLETCHER’s repeat collaborator Jonah Shy, the track unfolds in dizzying grooves and bright bursts of synth as FLETCHER shows off her effortless vocal flow and supremely confident lyrics: “Hello nice to meet ya, my name’s Cari/We should rendezvous sometime, mon cherie/I want you on top of me like cherry.” In a playful twist, Hayley makes her own introduction at the second chorus, adding to the song’s ultravivid storytelling and irresistibly flirtatious mood. As the two trade off vocals, “Cherry” ultimately captures the carefree thrill of surrendering to pure pleasure.

Los Angeles thrashers FUELED BY FIRE unveil music video for “Disrupt”
Says guitarist/vocalist Rick Rangel, “‘Disrupt’ is a song that touches on Fear, Greed, Corruption, Ignorance, Oppression, Manipulation, Hypocrisy and all-out Anarchy happening around the world. Having gone through one of the craziest times in modern history, I think this song reflects the dire feeling that has been felt by everyone that has been affected by a global pandemic, media manipulation, corporate greed, corrupt politicians and police brutality all going on at the same time. Ultimately, this song is about a bleak future for everyone and that there are no happy endings… just endings.”
