From Coco + Creme – Before there was a Santigold, MIA, or even Vashtie, there was Neneh Cherry. The Swedish singer/songwriter/rapper was a worldwide sensation during her peak years of success during the late 80s/90s and quite the dope chick when it came to her wardrobe as well. Always bold and unapologetic with her style, Neneh Cherry set trends that were far ahead of her time and have continued to influence those who’ve come after her. Who can forget that insane dollar-bill body suit, for example?! That piece would fit right in with a Jeremy Scott runway collection even today. . . . Needless to say, she deserves her title as one of Coco’s fave originators.

    I love her!!!! , Buddy X was that joint.

  • YES!!!!!!!!! Finally someone gives Neneh Cherry the props she deserves!! “Raw Like Sushi”, “Homebrew” and “Man” were so much a part of my life growing up, I feel like they could be an unofficial soundtrack! Neneh’s dope as hell!!!

    Side note, she is also a fantastic cook and had a BBC cooking show with best bud Andi Oliver…

    Neneh was the “ish” back in her day. I loved the fact that she fabricated her own style of flyness and didn’t allow herself to be dictated to as to what was hot and what was not.
