With influences like Sam Cooke, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill Soul and R&B is no stranger to Canadian born soul singer Melanie Fiona. Dropping the follow up to her debut album The Bridge on March 20, the album entitled The MF Life is what many would called an real old school soul album. Working with producers like No I.D, Salaam Remi, Andrea Martin, Rico Love, Los Da Mystro and T-Pain, Melanie Fiona stayed true to herself and the outcome in my opinion is one of the top 5 R&B album in 3 years. A simple soul album with a touch of new featuring hip hop artist such as J Cole, B.O.B, Nas and T-pain,gave a fresh twist on the album but yet it stayed soulful throughout. Melanie Fiona is doing what most soul and R&B artist are failing to do. Instead of converting herself to pop shes staying true to real soul. The MF Life only selling 34,000 copies in its opening week seemed to impressed many soul fans like myself. So i would like to say Thank You to Melanie Fiona for keeping soul music alive.
