Eric Boss teams up with AIME and Martronimous on summery “My Cherie”
What defines a “song of the summer?” Is it the laid–back production? The swagger–filled vocals? The instantly catchy, danceable beats?
Whatever it is, Eric Boss’ latest single, “My Cherie,” featuring AIME and Martronimous, checks all those boxes. Boss, a producer for Philly’s Tiny Room For Elephants collective, released “My Cherie” as the lead single for his upcoming record. Described as having a “Haitian vibe,” the in–so–far untitled upcoming album will be released September 25th.
“My Cherie” is highlighted by a sunny, Afro–Caribbean beat and a breezy trumpet melody (performed by Martronimous). Philly rapper AIME provides the vocals on the track, singing and rapping in English and Creole. The vibe on this track is like a hybrid of Calvin Harris’s “Slide” and J Balvin’s Colores: “My Cherie” is laid–back enough to quietly groove to, but goes hard enough to imagine clubbing to.
