Melanie Fiona x ?uestlove Mixtape Collabo



To preview her debut album (dropping in August—too far from now) Toronto powerhourse Melanie Fiona enlisted the help of ?uestlove and The Illadelphonics to release a mixtape filled with live remix acoustic versions of album cuts and covers (jam session style!) along with one on one interviews with The Legendary Roots Crew drummer. The interviews provide great insight into the life, background and making of her late summer release The Bridge. I'm a huge fan of the covers... a reggae twist on Kanye West's "Heartless" and a great rendition of Sam Cooke's "Cupid" shows Fiona's great range and natural talent. The mixtape is a great taste of what she has to come and what fans have to look forward to! Gwan Mel! Tracklist after the jump.
