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.”

Melii Releases “See Me”

Harlem-based singer/songwriter/rapper Melii has shared her new track See Me” and its accompanying video. Released via Rule#1/Interscope Records, “See Me” showcases the up-and-coming artist’s hypnotic delivery, bilingual vocal skills, and unapologetic lyrics.

With its video directed by Kristen White, “See Me” finds Melii bringing her signature raw honesty to a sparse and soulful R&B stunner. Set against a laid-back beat and slow-burning groove, the 20-year-old artist’s vocals shift from warm and vulnerable to hypnotically fierce, again proving her powerful charisma as a performer and songwriter.

“See Me” arrives on the heels of “Como Si Na,” an all-Spanish hip-hop ballad released in September. Hailed by Vibe as a “certified banger,” “Como Si Na” landed on a “5 Songs You Need to Listen to This Week” from TIME magazine (who noted that Melii is “just as comfortable flexing her attitude as a rapper and modulating her vocals with care, turning the track into an infectious display of her talent”).

Melii’s recent releases also include “La Envidia Mata,” that Rolling Stone praised a “sledgehammer of a single.”

Due out soon, Melii’s debut project Phases is a narrative-based exploration of her past, from the painful memories to the major triumphs that ultimately led to her breakout success. Since first gaining attention with her bilingual remix of Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow,” 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). She’s alsoearned 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.”
