Melii had an amazing run in 2018, dropping “Icey” and making a guest appearance on Meek Mill’s #1 album, Championships.
Melii is coming into 2019 heavy with “HML,” a sexy track that talks about wanting her love interest to come back and simply “Hit Her Line.” The Harlem artist tapped into the Bronx, gaining a feature with ABoogie Wit Da Hoodie.
The song premiered on Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 and during their interview via FaceTime, Melii stated, “It’s just that I’m a perfectionist. Like, I always, once I take a step back, I let music live, you know, and then I listen to it and I’m like, ‘No, this is missing,'” Melii explained. “So there’s certain songs that I’ve altered, just like, fixed and then there’s certain songs I have pulled out because I feel like no, this phase is better.”
Melii is gearing up to release her forthcoming project, Phases, and will feature “HML,” and a few stellar names that she is unable to talk about.
“There are collabs on Phases and I can’t say the name, but it’s somebody who has hits after hits,” she teased. “My favorite artist.”
I love how Melii goes back and forth from singing in English to serenading us in Spanish. Melii’s ‘HML’ is definitely going to be a bop for this year.
