NENEH CHERRY Released Debut Album ‘RAW LIKE SUSHI’ 30 Years Ago…

5 June 2019

Today 30 years ago, on 5 June 1989 flamboyant and outspoken Swedish artist NENEH CHERRY released her flourishing and successful debut LP RAW LIKE SUSHI. It peaked at #3 on the UK Albums Chart and scored very well all over Europe.

ALL MUSIC wrote: “An unorthodox and brilliantly daring blend of R&B, rap, pop, and dance music, Sushi enjoyed little exposure on America’s conservative urban contemporary radio formats, but was a definite underground hit. Full of personality, the singer/rapper is as thought-provoking as she is witty and humorous when addressing relationships and taking aim at less-than-kosher behavior of males and females alike…” Score: 4.5/5

Of course top-notch hit single BUFFALO STANCE is without a doubt
the best known and by far the coolest track on the longplayer…
