Press Release :
Her first eponymous album, released in January, shows her determination to sing both in French and English. And China is well surrounded by her family, here is proof: her mother pitches her voice on "Bad for me"; her manager, Jean-Marie Durand, is also China's father-in-law; her sister has written the words of "Battles of the heart"; her little brother poses for the cover photo; then, this album is dedicated to China's father, and more specifically the title "Never enough love".

China: "I made a duet with Guru, worked with sound engineer Bob Power, shuttled back and forth Stockholm-Paris, met A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Jazzyfatnastees, recorded at D and D studios with Nas and Premier nearby. What more do I have to do?"

In fact China has to be more credible. Bus, alas, the French audience takes her for granted, not hip hop enough.

China : "I have hardly been able to stomach the blow and I left for New York. During one year I met some terrible people, attended original freestyles... I missed music, I missed Paris, I missed daft dicussions on credibility, I missed my own music... so I went back."

Her live performances draw attention; this way, in 1997 during Neneh Cherry French tour, she does the first part. This tour goes through Lyon, Lille, Nantes, Bordeaux and Paris at Le Zénith on the 8th of March 1997.

China : "Neneh is wonderful, she was my idol when I was a teenager. I very much respect the fact that she has always shown a strong and free woman in a particular light, still remaining a woman. She knows what she wants."
