Detroit has its fair share of stars. We all know their names: Eminem, Big Sean, The Supremes, Dej Loaf, Smokey Robinson, Aaliyah... Add another to the burgeoning list: Nigerian American Chechi Sarai. Born and raised in the city that Motown made, this daughter of a DJ is making quite the name for herself in the music world. With a sound embracing the different cultures that her father infused in her as well as the influences of the city that changed music forever, Chechi plans to bring her unique voice to the youth as a positive message that anything is possible. A plan that is coming to fruition before her eyes.
With her previously released song, a cover of the world famous 1975 Minnie Riperton song, “Lovin’ You”, with a riddim twist showcased her ability to adapt her style to any sound. It also displayed her amazing vocal prowess making the song her own that she uses as a staple in her live performances.
Today, she is set to debut her newest single, “Real Deal”. A song produced by fellow Detroit native Radrick that blends a crossover pop sound with trap drums, blazing synths and a Caribbean flair that encapsulates her perfectly. Chechi Sarai is a talent that can take many aspects of different genres and bend them into a new sound that everyone can enjoy.
