We can probably all attest to being, at some point, in a situation where our suitor is driving us mad and doing some grimy things that call their devotion into question. But the love is so strong that you just want to hold on and give him/her the benefit of the doubt, rather than start all over again. This is the premise of Melanie Fiona's "It Kills Me," a track that hearkens back to the timeless R&B love songs that aren't marked by throwaway trends. Melanie and her first single, "Give It To Me Right," have already gained traction with our friends HoneySoul, ConcreteLoop and Kevin Nottingham, and is it any wonder? She's got the pipes and the approach that we not only love, but is sorely needed in major label R&B these days. Her debut, The Bridge, is set to release in late Spring on Motown Universal.
