Rina Sawayama opens up about pansexuality with infectious single “Cherry”

Rina Sawayama‘s “Cherry” is out now on [PIAS] imprint Different Recordings.

Japanese-born, UK-based artist Rina Sawayama had an amazing 2017 year with the release of her amazing mini-album “RINA”. Earlier this year, she shared a Valentine’s day song and her new single “Cherry” also deals with love. On a punchy production signed by Hoost and Clarence Clarity, the artist is actually opening up about pansexuality. Rina Sawayama has a magic skill: she can bring back and dust off the instant catchiness of late 90s and early 2000s pop music and it always sounds so refreshing. About this personal bop “Cherry”, Rina Sawayama stated:

I’ve always written songs about girls. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned a guy in my songs, and that’s why I wanted to talk about it. For me there’s still a lack of representation. I just think the reason why I wasn’t so comfortable with my sexuality was because there was no one on TV or anywhere that I could point at and go, ‘Look mum! This person is what I was talking about!’
