A powerful new voice has arrived on the music scene!
Singer Cherry B made her solo debut with ‘Her‘ on November 29. Take a look at her first music video below!
Cherry B‘s debut song ‘Her‘ is an R&B ballad that plays to the singer’s strengths. Her breathy voice is not overshadowed by an over-the-top instrumental; instead, the accompanying piano and string parts create emotive chords that emphasize Cherry B‘s touching vocal quality. ‘Her‘ sees Cherry B use a series of vocal runs that show her control, and well as high notes that will give listeners goosebumps. The slow, yet beautifully filmed music video highlights details such as snow caught in the actors’ hair and forms the perfect accompaniment to the stirring winter ballad.
‘Her‘ was composed by producer Lee Jong Hoon, and the lyrics were written by none other than powerhouse vocalist IU! This was IU‘s first experience writing lyrics for another artist, and she took to her personal Instagram account to talk about the experience. You can check out her post below!

가사 쓰는 걸 아주 좋아하긴 하지만 다른 가수분의 곡을 작사하는 건 저에겐 아직 조심스러워 늘 다음으로 다음으로 미루던 일이었는데 이종훈 작곡가의 작업실에 놀러 갔다가 이 곡의 영어 가이드를 듣고는 우선 곡이 좋아서, 그리고 가창자의 목소리가 너무 좋아서.. 처음으로 다른 가수분에게 가사를 드리게 됐습니다. 아직 굉장히 어리기도 하고 또 데뷔곡이라 경험이 많지 않음에도 불구하고 한 줄 한 줄 이해하려 부단히 노력해주고, 결국 온전히 자기 말로 만들어낸 #CherryB 고마워요! 노래 참 잘해요???? 이렇게 듣자마자 매력을 느낀 목소리 정말 오랜만었어요. 즐거운 작업이었고 나도 응원할게요???? #그의그대
IU‘s caption reads:
I really enjoy writing lyrics but I still feel cautious about writing lyrics for other people’s songs, so I always delayed doing so until the next time and the next time and so on. One day I went to Lee Jong Hoon‘s recording studio and listened to the English guide for this song. The song was good and the singer’s voice was really nice… so for the first time, I ended up giving lyrics to another singer. Although she is still very young and doesn’t have a lot of experience because this is her debut song, I am thankful to Cherry B because she made an effort to go through each line one by one and really understand the lyrics. She sang very well 🙂 It has been a long time since I was so charmed by a voice the first time I heard it. I had fun working with you and I’ll be cheering for you!
With such a glowing recommendation from one of the biggest names in the industry, it is clear that Cherry B has the potential to make a lasting impact on the Korean music world! What did you think of her debut single ‘Her‘?
