Cherry V is getting closer to the release of her Brown Eyed Soul debut album and “Swimming” is the latest song from it with a feature from British rapper RoxXxan. On the inspiration behind “Swimming” Cherry V says,

“It’s about attraction, it’s about those daydreams you have about that special person. It’s about them persistently roaming around in your thoughts… way beyond your control… slightly obsessive lol. It’s about wanting to be alone, away from the noise, prying eyes and social media – just two people getting lost in each other’s company.”
