New Music: Melanie Amaro – ‘Respect’

Respect

U.S. “X Factor” champ Melanie Amaro shows “Respect” to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, by sampling her 1965 classic on her debut single. The soulful dance recording will be featured in Pepsi’s Super Bowl commercial, airing during Sunday’s big game. The 19-year-old singer, who hails from the British Virgin Islands, will also star in the TV spot alongside Elton John.

    Her voice is so powerful we need singers like her. I am so tired of the same artists who can’t hold a note in the limelight. Being with L.A. Reid she will be a megastar.

    Not a fan of cover tracks, but I am a fan of Melanie and her voice. She murdered this dance track, I just can’t wait to see original material.

    Oooh she good. She and Beyonce would make a HIT song. Their vocals will be on POINT! She should really team up with Bey. Tbh that would hit off her career.
