Last night, we premiered our first interview at the Heineken Red Star Access Tour with Wale, and if you caught that video, you saw Melanie Fiona surprising everyone with a performance of “Beautiful Bliss” alongside her fellow headliner. Well, shortly before that performance and a stirring solo set of her own, our own Jeff Baraka sat down with Melanie for a candid one-on-one to find out (like Wale) how her heritage is expressed through her artistry and music as well as how she aligns her personal brand with brands like Heineken and brands in general. And of course, we couldn’t let her get away without sharing a synopsis of what’s to come on her upcoming album, The MF Life, and her new single“4AM”. Watch above and hear who she worked with for the upcoming album (some bignames) as well as what to expect on the upcoming music video for that powerful ballad “4AM”.
Everytime we get a chance to talk to Melanie, her vibrant energy and personality, plus insightful perspective are all on display and it always makes for both a fun and engaging discussion. Without further adieu, watch our latest interview with her above (also featuring some live footage) and for even more of what I mean, check out our last interview with Melanie from the beginning of summer.
