About Melanie Fiona
Melanie’s 2009 debut, The Bridge, was the formal introduction of what would become her bluesy, soulful signature: melodic tales of empowering emotional rollercoasters. The New York Times named The Bridge one of 2009’s best R&B albums. Her songwriting is braided with sad truths and balanced by glimmers of fulfilling romance; something the young woman firmly believes exists in this crazy world. The album’s breakthrough ballad, “It Kills Me,” topped Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for nine weeks and earned Fiona her first Grammy nomination in 2010 for Best R&B Female Vocal Performance.
Charlene Keys assumed the moniker Tweet in the early ’90s. Tweets debut album “Southern Hummingbird” was released in April 2002, led by the single “Oops (Oh My)” featuring Missy Elliott. The single peaked at No. 3 in the U.S and No. 5 in the UK, and was proceeded by the singles “Call Me” and “Boogie 2nite”. The singer’s sophomore album “It’s Me Again” arrived in 2005 largely produced by Missy Elliott. The record was led by the singles “Turn da Lights Off”, “When I Need a Man” and “Cab Ride”, following which Tweet signed with Matthew Knowles of the management company Music World. After a significant hiatus, Tweet released the five-track EP “Simply Tweet” in 2013 and marked the first of the singer’s releases not to feature Missy Elliott in any form.
