Amana Melome's name may be new to these pages, but she is no new jack to the music industry. The Germany-born singer, songwriter and actress already has some albums to her credit and is actually a celebrity in Italy, where she has a lead role on the popular Italian sitcom, Un medico in famiglia. Now Melome has her sights set on US success, and we think she's well on her way to achieving it with her upcoming EP, Lock and Key, if the music video for the first single "Lock and Key" is any indication.
SoulBounce is proud to world premiere the "Lock and Key" visuals, which show two sides of Melome -- we see her donning a blonde bombshell wig and wearing a barely there outfit as she poses for a provocative photo shoot before the real Amana sheds all of that video vixen gear to reveal her lovely locs and true self. According to Melome, "'Lock and Key' is a celebration of originality, of being yourself and embracing the fact that you can't be labeled or fit a box." That sentiment is reflected in the song's lyrics where she sings about being herself and in turn encourages listeners to do the same.
"Lock and Key" is produced by The Decoders' Adam Berg and Ital Shapira and the music video is directed by Valentina Caniglia. Spend a few minutes watching Amana Melome's "Lock and Key" and getting into its catchy groove, and keep an ear out for the EP Lock and Key to be released in January.
