‘Melanin Queens’ is a personal anthem written to depict the innovative, creative, and trendsetting nature of Black women. The song finds MELONYX acknowledging their melanated sisters as queens. Also, “Melanin Queens” expresses the power, royalty, and high value of Black women.
‘Melanin Queens’ contains an empowering narrative, ear-pleasing vocalization, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Angie Stone. The likable tune possesses serene instrumentation flavored with an enchanting neo-soul vibration. Also, “Melanin Queens” is featured on MELONYX’s debut double single, “Melanin Queens / Energy.” Both songs will be featured on MELONYX’s upcoming debut EP, entitled, “Black Elixir,” set to be released on June 29, 2021.
