With deep-rooted lyricism and eclectic vibrations at the forefront of her high-caliber artistry, Melica continues to offer shining authenticity across her latest cut, “Run.” Gliding atop sharp percussive textures and heavy-set basslines, Melica’s rich vocal performance perfectly encapsulates her journey toward reconciliation and the exploration of her past hardships that left reality in disarray.

Tired of walking at the same pace, Melica sings with great passion, “Carrying the burdens of their sins is weighing down on me. Life’s not fair, I scream and no one hears, have they forsaken me? Who’s gonna rescue me?” Time eventually will numb any pain away, but until then, Melica is determined to be who she was meant to be. “Rise and fall, I think I’ve seen it all, my deepest darkest flaws.”

“Run” contains a relatable narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of RAYE, Dua Lipa, Mahalia, and Tyla.

“Will the world remember my name?”

Melica’s musical affinities are a product of her ever-changing creative environment. Strong influences of reggae and R&B during her upbringing exposed the young artist to some of the most powerful connections across music, culture, and community. Later, she relocated to London, where she found true solace in music and performance.

With the creative arts becoming a therapeutic output for self-expression, Melica’s stunning 2021 single, “Don’t Say Sorry,” produced by Michelin Shin (Nines, Nafe Smallz, Wretch32), catapulted her unshakable talent into the ether with significant support across BBC 1XTRA, REPREZENT, and NO SIGNAL. All building up to key performances at Sofar Sounds and Cloud X Festival earlier this year – announcing an exciting voice blazing to new heights across the R&B landscape.

“If I speak, no one will hear me anyway.”

Melica is inspired by legendary artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, and Amy Winehouse. Throughout her journey, music became Melica’s steadfast companion, providing stability and a means to pour her heart and soul. In June of this year, she became a MOBO Unsung Class of 2023 finalist, further fueling her determination to establish herself as a prominent figure in the UK music scene. With an undeniable talent and unwavering ambition, Melica is poised to make her mark and become a household name in the industry.
