Melanie Fiona “Bite The Bullet”

Melanie Fiona is back!

And newly independent after some obvious snafus with her last label SRC/Universal left Fiona out of the spotlight the past couple of years. The news, if you didn’t know, should only add to the authenticity that shines through from the Toronto singer/songwriter on “Bite The Bullet” — her first official release off the upcoming album, Awake.

The song dwells on her debate to stay with a non-committal gentleman, which I’m sure is a situation that many can find commonplace in. Her vocals are on point, per usual, as I even sense a little bit of a reggae delivery at times. Melanie draws on that background throughout her career and the fusion below is definitely well-executed. Add this to your R&B grooves, which should only set the table for more.

(Also, dang! Melanie’s new profile picture above shows off a clean look with that necklace… and nothing more.)
