MELISA WHISKEY

"BILLIN'"

 


Melisa was born in Hackney but grew up on Bray Tower - the same Camden tower block as Goldie did when he dropped his seminal ‘Inner City Life’ album. Introduced to Gospel music at a young age at her local church, she signed her first publishing deal without having released a single track aged 24.


Now 26, she dropped her first track ‘Played’ in January this year and quickly picked up BBC Introducing Track of the Week as well as heat from BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Twin B. The natural soul and depth of Melisa’s vocal was too strong to deny.


Melisa followed this with a new track ‘Sweetest Cake’ in March, this time picking up heat across both sides of the Atlantic with Wonderland, AFROPUNK, OK-THO and Clash Magazine all featuring what they heralded as a major new voice in UK soul and R&B.


Now coming with the second taster from her forthcoming debut E.P. ‘Moon & The Sky,‘Billin’ is an outspoken, harder offering that brings a whole new dimension to Melisa’s work. The boss-like stance is there, as is the throaty drawl and natural, understated power, but again the slick, grinding production together with her warnings to men scared of women on the grind and making money for themselves makes this a defiant, powerful call to action. Allusions to the natural R&B character of Mary J Blige seem relevant, with a unique London grounding. Now moving in the same circles as Jae 5 and J Hus’s camp, this is a level-up statement of intent from Melisa. It’s also an edgy, soulful banger that keeps the young star’s reputation building as we knew it would.
