Neneh Cherry (born Neneh Marianne Karlsson on March 10, 1964 in Stockholm) is a two-time Grammy Award-nominated and MTV Europe Music Award-winning Swedish singer-songwriter and rapper. Cherry is also an occasional DJ and broadcaster. Cherry blended hip hop with other influences, and experienced some moderate mainstream success with several of her recordings.

Born of Swedish and Sierra Leonean parentage, Neneh Cherry spent most of her formative years in Europe and North America. Her stepfather is trumpeter 'Don Cherry'. Early in her career she was a member of 'Rip Rig & Panic' and 'New Age Steppers'. As a solo artist, she released a number of albums in the late 80's and early-to-mid 90's to critical and commercial acclaim ('Raw Like Sushi', 1989; 'Homebrew', 1992; 'Man', 1996). Neneh is the half-sister of singer 'Eagle-Eye Cherry'

Although she has participated in the odd production here and there, she has remained relatively quiet since then, appearing as a guest vocalist on the 'Groove Armada' album 'Lovebox' in 2002 and the 'Gorillaz' album 'Demon Days' in 2005.

Cherry announced the formation of her new band, 'cirKus'. in 2006. Her husband 'Burt Ford' (aka boogabear, aka 'Cameron McVey'), is also in the band. The band's first album, Laylow was released in France in 2006.

Awards and other recognition
Cherry was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1990 in the Best New Artist Category (due to success of "Buffalo Stance") but she lost out to Milli Vanilli, who later had their Grammy revoked when it was discovered that they had not performed on their recording.
She received her second Grammy nomination in 1994 for the Youssou N'Dour duet "7 Seconds." The single received worldwide acclaim but did not win the Grammy Award.
