MELII RELEASES MUCH-ANTICIPATED DEBUT PROJECT ‘PHASES’ OUT NOW
Harlem-based singer/songwriter/artist Melii has shared her highly anticipated debut project, PhAses. Released via Rule#1/Interscope Records, PhAses is a daringly candid and powerful portrait of her past, revealing Melii to be a multi-talented force of nature.

Featuring appearances by artists like Tory Lanez and Odalys, PhAses includes Melii’s previously released singles “HML” ft. A Boogie Wit da Hoodie (which premiered as a Zane Lowe World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1) and “See Me” (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”). In addition, Melii premiered PhAses on Ebro Darden’s show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 this morning. Listen HERE.
In a recent interview with The FADER, Melii explained the meaning behind the title to the deeply intimate Phases. “As women, we go through different emotions,” Melii stated. “Every song has a wrap up, it has a story. It’s a page in my journal.”

Earlier this month, Melii wrapped up her run of dates as a can’t-miss support act for Meek Mill’s Motivation Tour. The two artists recently collaborated on “Wit the Shits (W.T.S.),” a track from Meek Mill’s latest album Championships (a #1 hit on the Billboard 200).
Featured on NYLON’s “15 Up-And-Coming Artists To Watch In 2019” list, Melii has previously 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). In addition, she’s 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.”
