Although she only made it to the semi-finals in Australia’s X-Factor in 2013, singer Phoenix Melody did not give up. After the talentshow she took a short break from the music business but still always had the high ambition of becoming a singer. And her dream just became true: Her debut single Be The One is not only incredibly catchy but also includes rhythmic afrobeats mixed with deep bass tunes which very much invite you to dance along (at least that’s how I felt 😉 ). Not to mention that her R&B vocals are on point!
When asked about her style of music, the Sydney-based artist stated:
“My music really reflects my personality. I’m laid-back, but also super outgoing. Overall, I’m all about finding that balance and enforcing positivity – Knowing yourself allows more room for positive thinking and less room for negative energy.” (Phoenix Melody in an interview with Cliché).
She might not have been X-Factor’s winner then, but now Phoenix Melody sure is winning with the production of hitmakers DFB Production and Tha Hitbangaz.
Watch out for her EP to be released later this year, as well as an official music video and remix package! But for now, listen to her debut below.
