Cheri Poppinz is the cheeky alter ego of Rhiannon Roze - the world renown DJ, producer, and artist. She writes and records her own lyrics and produces her own tracks from start to finish, mixing and mastering included. She also produces her own music videos which are published on Rhiannon's YouTube channel with over 10,000 subscribers and over 1 million organic views.
Cheri is an outlet for Rhiannon's more controversial content. As Cheri, Rhiannon writes and raps about socio-political themes including sexuality, gender, money, power, and relationships. With undertones of feminist satire, her lyrics and music videos will either delight you or trigger you. Regardless, she is grinning from ear to ear. Through Cheri, Rhiannon advocates breaking taboos, questioning norms, and not taking yourself seriously. She explores and celebrates the raw truths and complexities of human sexuality and psychology, revealing both the light and the shadow. As a volunteer therapist and healing facilitator, Rhiannon has exposure to and compassion for the sufferings of her fellow human beings. She offers relief by giving people permission to be their whole selves, in and outside of societal norms. She does this via her art using humour, radical honesty, and courageous self-expression.
Cheri Poppinz officially launched with her single Chupa, a collaboration with Smoothies, the Italian Moombahton Kings. Chupa was released on Sak Noel's record label, Barnaton. Her next release is an original debut track called Pop It Right. She is also releasing a collection of the first tracks she wrote, recorded, and released between 2012 and 2014 in the form of an EP (for those loyal fans who keep asking). Expect this EP to drop with all new artwork in 2021.
In The Beginning...
For a 100% independent artist with only a couple years under her studio belt, Rhiannon received a ton of acclaim for her early writings and vocal work back in 2012. Her first single Nasty Chick was played on radio stations throughout the world and remixed by dozens of producers. Tyco's Electro House Remix rose to #1 on trackitdown.net and stayed there for over two weeks. It also climbed to #33 on the Beatport Top 100 Chart. Clinton Sparks made a Trap Remix of Nasty Chick with an accompanying music video remix by the #1 DVDJ in the world which premiered on Noisey, VICE's music channel. Her second single All The Girls Do It was remixed by David A, Lemonade Thirst was remixed by Kastra, and Whiskey & Pantyhose was remixed by Klaas. The music video for All The Girls Do It has over 500,000 organic views and her other music videos aren't far behind. Drop it Like A Bomb premiered on Two In The Shirt, Worldstar Hip Hop, and All Hip Hop.com, and features the celebrity legend Ron Jeremy.
