    @terra I agree that there is something missing. I’ve always said she was a few levels below Jazmine Sullivan which is funny because she is in the same position Jazz was last year. Grammy nominations but no one really knows who she is outside of r&b fans. Hopefully Jazmine comes out with a CD that showcases her voice and has a more soulful feel to it. She just wrapped up some studio time with John Legend so we will see what develops!

    I would have to respectfully disagree with you conclusion that Melanie Fiona is trying to emulate someone else’s sound. One could easily assume this if they were comparing her to those artists, but if you are recognizing her talent as her own, you will realize that she does not sound like Toni Braxton or Jazmine Sullivan. I concede they all have similar tones, and Jasmine and Melanie both incorporate a lot runs in their vocals – but other than that, really no similarities.

    At any rate, check out her cd The Bridge, and you will notice that her sound is really diverse and unique. And this song and performance alone does not fully showcase her sound, just a glimpse.

    My bad, apparently you did check out her cd, and hated it. I fuks with Melanie, and have loved her sound and music from day one. But to each his own!

    But still, there should be no comparison between Toni Braxton, Jazmine Sullivan, and Melanie Fione. All beautiful, talented, black women – but totally different sounds.

    @incognegro I didn’t compare her sound to Jazz I was just stating they she is in a similar position as her because of grammy nominations and being relatively unknown by the masses. When I said she was a few notches below Jaz I was referring to her skills as a singer. In my opinion Jazmine is the best in the game right now so a lot of people fall in that category as being levels behind her.

    I checked her CD out before and I really wasn’t feeling it. I’m not feeling the whole pop/rnb sound but she has done well for herself and thats all that matters.
