What We're Checkin'- Melanie Fiona's "It Kills Me"- Toya
Confession: I have been slippin' on my new music knowledge for real. This recession, man! Being a receptionist is not the most taxing job in the world so I have decided to catch up some while at the office sitting stationary for umpteen hours.
Tia and I were sent this video of newcomer Melanie Fiona's new song "It's Kills Me" a few days ago and I am going to be honest: I don't always give female R&B artists a fair shot. But once I saw that it had my new love of my life, Adam Rodriguez, I thought that the very LEAST I could do is give her a fair chance. I went to check out more of her stuff and found that surprisingly I had already heard her material on Michael Baisden's show. He often features her "Give It to Me Right" on one of his segments.
My verdict: I dig her. I really do. Her vibe is much in the vein of Tiffany Green's and that is a good thing to me. I am willing to applaud just about anything out of the box R&B wise nowadays so for that she gets two thumbs up on my end. Tell us what you think...
