Melanie Fiona's The MF Life is the Grammy-nominated soulstress's second album. It evinces the charmed life of an immensely gifted vocalist in forward motion, hurtling up the road, the radio dial, and the charts to a unique place where myriad listeners can soothe their souls and hear the beat of their own hearts.
"Gone and Never Coming Back," the powerfully emotive lead single from The MF Life, catapults Melanie Fiona's career to new heights with a breathtaking display of resolve and resilience. Written by frequent collaborator Andrea Martin, "Gone and Never Coming Back" finds Fiona picking up where she left off on "It Kills Me," the Grammy-nominated hit single from her critically acclaimed 2009 debut CD, The Bridge.
The maturity Melanie Fiona displays on The MF Life is underscored by her remarkable versatility and cosmopolitan panache. The album showcases a stunning mix of vibrant new sounds from a host of A-list R&B producers and songwriters, each partaking of the originality that has made Fiona a sought-after collaborator by everyone from Cee-Lo Green ("Fool For You") and John Legend & The Roots ("Wake Up! Everybody") to reggae superstar Stephen Marley ("No Cigarette Smoking (In My Room)") and U.K. rapper Tinchy Stryder ("Let It Rain").
