Melanie Fiona has released her debut album The Bridge in Canada on June 30th. The album features her debut single “Give It To Me Right” along with 11 solid tracks consist of r&b/ soul defining a deeper meaning of the “The Bridge”. She worked with various producers and executives including Steve Rifkind, Future Cut, Vada Nobles, J. Phoenix, Affiliate, Peter Wade, Salaam Remi and Supa Dups. Just like every other artists, Melanie has come a long way from battling with labels to change her sound to dealing with a “certain image”. I can not express how happy I am for Melanie and I have been a huge supporter of hers since I was six years old.
In 2008, Melanie who didn’t have a single or an album, opened for Kanye West during his European Tour. She gained a lot of attention in Europe making her first single “Give It To Me Right” earned a spot on the Top 10 charts in Italy, Croatia, Greece and Slovenia. That’s an amazing accomplishment. She is currently working on with Questlove of the Roots on a mixtape The Bridge – Remixed Live which should be released soon.
