New Music: Melanie Amaro – ‘Long Distance’

Long Distance

Melanie Amaro soars on her new single “Long Distance.” The 20-year-old “X Factor” champ shows off her powerful pipes as she sings about a long distance relationship on the Top 40 tune.

Melanie’s Epic/Syco debut debut Truly… will be released in early 2013 featuring a mix of R&B, dance-pop, and big ballads. She has been in the studio with Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Kuk Harrell, Tricky Stewart, and Bleu McAuley, among others.

“There’s one side of me that’s all about pop, the kind of music you can move and dance to and have fun with, but my biggest influences have always been singers like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, and I definitely stayed true to that on the album,” said Melanie, who will return to “The X Factor” on Thursday to perform the song for the first time.

    Sorry, I always loved Melanie and voted for her on X Factor. However the songs she has released are lacking the emotion and feeling she put into every song on the X Factor. Not to mention, I thought for sure she’d be going for a more Urban/R&B themed album, not this pop/techno EVERYBODY is putting out these days. She’s very talented, I just think this material is not what the public expected her to put out. We want some R&B, Melanie!

    @A’ron, blame her label…. she should be singing songs that have more soul but they want her to do whats hot right now…. just wasting her voice.

    @ok, Exactly…her label and manager need to have her sing songs that the audience that voted for her wants to hear. I’m sure that she had the majority of the African American audience and they don’t wanna hear pop. I’m a white boy and I want to hear sing something more Urban. R&B/Soul is the genre she needs to be in. This pop stuff is trash.

    I liked her previous two songs more and they were terrible. This is just …. smh. I was a Marcus Canty/Chris Rene fan, so I never cared too much for Melanie Amaro but the audience that Cowell & Reid are pushing her towards will probably purchase her album in droves.

    She is currently in a long distance relationship so I like that this song is real, & if you don’t think her songs have emotion then its beacause she isn’t singing them with emotion & lastly, she looks up to Mariah & Whitney who sang POP records also so it’s not like she is selling out. I like it a lot.

    @Paradise, Melanie’s songs are corny though. Whitney’s weren’t. Not to mention her voice was much better.

    @Triniti, I don’t think she’s selling out. It’s her first album, she doesn’t have any credibility for the record label to give her creative control. So therefore she does what the label is telling her to do. I just think they are steering her in the wrong market. Whitney and Mariah did pop records, no doubt. GOOD ones. However their labels marketed them to Pop and R&B listeners to capitalize on record sales. However, besides a few dance remixes, Mariah and the late great Whitney would have never released this techno/house song as a first single. It limits the market to only pop listeners and R&B fans will lose interest. I don’t know of any Urban/R&B stations that would be able to get away with playing this song. Her voice sounds pop, too. None of the soul she had on the show. The reason why I voted for her! Even her last songs have been ALL pop songs. I’m not a Melanie hater by any means. I voted for her on X-Factor and I even came hear hoping for a great R&B ballad finally, and here is another techno/club dance song just like the previous two she released before. The ones that saw no movement on the charts at all. Thank God she got 5 million dollars out of it.

    @A’ron, I think they dont know what to do with her because she release something more pop (Don’t Fail Me Now) nobody wass here for it….so she releases something more R&B (Love Me Now) nobody wass here for that either

    It’s okay. In this song, the only one I’ve heard of her, she sounds like a worse Jordin Sparks.

    I’m sure she can do better.

    I don’t care what u think she is a larger than life singer with tremendous pipes. Give her the right songs and she will fly…
    It’s just a matter of time and the right song vehicle to spring her past all these untalented pop princesses……
