Nadia Jae Catches Up With Melisa Whiskey

With an ear for hot R&B and fresh UK music, Nadia Jae will be lifting the lid on one of the UK's one-to-watch - Melisa Whiskey!

 

 

With her musical roots in gospel, Melisa's natural soul and depth have gained her reputation as a strong vocal artist.  At the age of twenty-four Melisa penned her first publishing deal - without having to released a single track.

 

 

Now aged 26, Melisa has fully arived on the music scene with her debut single 'Played' which has been tearing up the airwaves around the UK like wildfire. 

 

 

 

 

Melisa followed this with a new track ‘Sweetest Cake’ in March, this time picking up heat across both sides of the Atlantic with WonderlandAFROPUNKOK-THO andClash 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.

 

Don't miss Melisa Whiskey on Mid Morning with NJ this Monday 30th October from 10am-1pm
