Melanie Fiona is back and her new single will probably be on repeat through summer.
“Bite the Bullet” features the sharp lyrics we’ve come to expect from Fiona, over live horns and a Caribbean-influenced production.
“I remember when you said you loved me, three little words that burned into my soul. Maybe you didn’t mean those things you told me. Maybe you really didn’t mean those words at all,” she sings before the infectious chorus comes in.
Comparing the love from an unfaithful lover to a loaded gun, Fiona keeps in touch with her core audience. Her fans want to hear tales of heartbreak and resilience from her and that’s exactly what she’s delivered with this new single.
You’ll want to listen to it more than once for sure. The song is now available on iTunes.
Fiona released her third studio album The MF Life in 2012. Continue reading
Melanie Fiona teamed up with Pepsi and Complex Media to shoot a video for her latest release “Cold Piece.” The visuals show Fiona riding around Brooklyn in a Pepsi-branded ice cream truck. She stops to party with friends, including Luke James, Ro James and Mateo, half-way through the video.
The Ryan Wick-produced visuals are part lyrics video and part marketing.
The singer parted ways with Universal earlier this year. She is currently working on her third album. Continue reading
Melanie Fiona has always been good at being the voice for brokenhearted women everywhere and that’s exactly what she’s doing in her new single “Cold Piece.” When Fiona released footage from the studio session I knew this song was going to be pretty good and her vocals…amazing as usual.
The beat feels like an old-school hip-hop beat, making the blunt lyrics a little less piercing. Continue reading
Melanie Fiona’s songs have a way of making you feel like you’re stranded in the middle of #NEMO with no shelter and no one to keep you warm as the snow blends with your tears.
The R&B songstress FINALLY released the Larenz Tate-directed music video for “Wrong Side of a Love Song.” After checking her man’s (Omari Hardwick) phone and having a heated discussion, Fiona is left alone to wallow in her misery as her man packs his bag, presumably to go stay with his texting companion. The drama is heightened by the fact that memories of the good times play out on one side of the screen as the breakup occurs on the other.
It’s not a shocking video, but Hardwick and Fiona are so good looking, it hardly matters. Check it out below and share your thoughts! Continue reading

Yesterday I posted some behind the scenes footage of Melanie Fiona’s latest video “This Time,” and today the full video debuted on BET. The video shows Melanie performing on a giant clock, (VERY reminiscent of The Big Comfy Couch…) in a snow globe, in a hallway lined with clocks, and with J. Cole. The video follows a simple theme, but it definitely works for the song. Check it out below and share your thoughts!!! Continue reading

Melanie Fiona is taking a stand! In her newly released video for her song “Watch Me Work,” Melanie Fiona features pop culture clips of women finding their voices and getting even. I’m not a huge fan of the song by itself, but I have to admit that the video concept is pretty clever!
