Harlem-based singer/songwriter/rapper Melii continues her run of head-turning singles with “HML,” a new track featuring Bronx rapper A Boogie wit da Hoodie.

On “HML,” Melii faces off against A Boogie in a hot and heavy duet. The track’s bouncy beat makes a perfect backdrop to her magnetic vocals, which slip from delicate to fierce with undeniable command.
“HML” follows Melii’s recent single “See Me,” a December release praised by HotNewHipHop as a “baddie anthem” that “serves as a pick me up for those struggling through the dynamics of relationships in the digital era.” The 21-year-old artist’s latest features also include her collaboration with Meek Mill on “Wit the Shits (W.T.S.),” a track from his new album Championships (a #1 hit on the Billboard 200).
Recently featured on NYLON’s “15 Up-And-Coming Artists To Watch In 2019” list, Melii is now at work on her debut project Phases: a narrative-based exploration of her past, from the painful memories to the major triumphs that ultimately led to her breakout success.
Melii has drawn acclaim for singles like “Icey (Spanish Remix)” (named “one of the year’s starkest rap hits” by Jon Caramanica of the New York Times), “La Envidia Mata” (dubbed a “sledgehammer of a single” by Rolling Stone), and “Como Si Na” (featured on a “5 Songs You Need to Listen to This Week” from TIME). She’s also earned admiration from Billboard, who stated that “Every few years, a new artist emerges from Harlem, ready to take on the rap world…In 2018, that spotlight belongs to Melii.”
