Cheyne

Cheyne (born in New York) was a female teenage dance/R&B singer from the mid-80s. Not much information is given on this singer.
In 1984, she released her first single, "Rude Boy" which didn't appear to chart at all on the Billboard charts.
Her second single, "Private Joy" didn't chart, but it was featured on the "Weird Science" movie soundtrack in 1985.
During that same year, Cheyne released her third single, "Call Me Mr. Telephone (Answering Service)" peaked at #106 on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart, #62 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 9 weeks and topped Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart for a week in June of 1985.

After that, it seems as if Cheyne has faded into obscurity. It's unknown what she's up to these days.

I read in Christopher Andersen's unauthorized biography on Madonna, Cheyne recorded Into the Groove after Madonna gave it to her to record for her album with Mark Kamins, who produced Madonna's song Everybody, producing her. Cheyne's version remains unreleased to this day as Madonna recorded the song herself for the movie Desperately Seeking Susan.

I just thought that I would pass this along to you.
