Hope Tala is surely an artist to watch as we head into 2021. With the kind volatile year that 2020 has been, it’s noteworthy that the young UK soul/R&B artist still got to create an awesome EP that deserves all praises — and it’s already received some rave reviews. Girl Eats Sun is 6 tracks of creative magic.
With the project, arrived the single “Cherries” which features fast-rising American artist rapper and singer Aminé. This song was accompanied by a stunning visual, and prior to that release, Hope had shared the “All My Girls Like To Fight” single and video.
“Cherries” is a bossa nova-influenced track with sensual and seductive vibes. About it, Hope Tala explains, “Since I started writing music, I’ve used fruit imagery; I’ve always been inspired by the Garden of Eden and the story of Adam and Eve. I think of ‘Cherries’ as being a really corporeal song – there’s a lot of lyrical content about how the body portrays feeling and emotion, and when I was writing it I used the symbol of cherries as my focal point to help me understand where these two worlds – material and emotional – collide.”
