After co-writing for Rihanna, touring with 'Ye, and copping a few GRAMMYs, Melanie Fiona is gearing up to release her next album Awake. With a nod to the Caribbean sounds from her West Indian upbringing in Toronto, its first single "Bite the Bullet," sets a soulful, drum-fuelled tone for the record. The song plays on Fiona's innate ability to hit the sweet spot between catchy, radio-friendly melodies and soulful R&B. Recently relocating to L.A., Fiona spent the last few months writing, recording, and settling in to the next phase in her career. Listen to "Bite the Bullet" below and stay tuned for more from Awake, due out via Title 9 Productions/Primary Wave Music/BMG.
