Andrew’s soulmate and party goddess, Cherie Lily, returns to the dance floor with “I Like It”, a high energy, pumped up song decked out with sassy vocals by clubland’s sweetest little missy. Written by Lily and produced by legendary ballroom DJ Vjuan Allure, the explosive track features a hypnotic descending bass line with a snare-lead, snappy, syncopated beat. “It’s one of the fastest songs I’ve ever done, bordering on manic,” says Cherie Lily of “I Like It”. The song takes the energy and playfulness of Lily’s previous hits, “Body” and “Kiss My Lips”, and turns it up a notch. “As Vjuan Allure himself says, ‘It’s different, but I like it’,” laughs Lily.
The single will drop on August 21st along with a music video. Pre-order link below!
“I got the inspiration for “I Like It” from teaching fitness classes,” continues Cherie Lily from her home in New York. “I wanted to capture that feeling of when you lock into the momentum of an athletic pulse, and your endorphins start juicing, and you begin to feel really hot. When you get to that place, your whole body begins to buzz and a tremendous feeling comes over you – you can’t help but like it.”
DJ Vjuan Allure created the landscape of “I Like It” around an acappella vocal part Lily sent him. “He’s a musical visionary,” declares Lily. “On top of being insanely talented, he has an incredibly open-minded vibe that I can relate to. I’m very grateful and blessed to be able to collaborate with Vjuan.”
The two met at the 2009 Xtravaganza Moda Ball at NYC’s Irving Plaza. Lily remembers being immediately captivated by the twinkle in Vjuan’s eye and a smile that melts hearts. “I fell completely head over heels in love.”
Their’s is a professional relationship, however. Cherie Lily already has her man. She’s married to heavy metal rocker Andrew W.K., who appears in the “I Like It” music video.
So how does love between a disco girl and rock icon happen?
“Music is one of the things that binds us together,” explains Lily. “Andrew is extremely thoughtful and has a deep love for all kinds of music. Everyday, I thank God for him in my life. Andrew is the absolute best.”
They’re very supportive of one another’s careers. Cherie can often be found singing and head banging next to her husband on stage at his live shows. They also enjoy laughing together over outrageous new Cherie Lily song ideas at 3am in their home studio.
