Born Monique Amelia to parents from Guinea-Bissau by way of Gambia, North-West London singer-songwriter Mnelia has fast become one to watch.
In order to demonstrate her versatility, the diva 2018 issued her debut EP, titled “2:4”, which featured a variety of modern UK sounds, including Drill. However, it is abundantly evident that she is a strong candidate to lead UK R&B after bursting into the scene in 2020 with the release of her catchy track “Say Yeah.”
She’s shooting for gold, embodying the development of British R&B as we’ve never seen it before. Mnelia is a winning combination of catchy melodies, perfect vocals, and a touch of nostalgia. If you add a dash of female emancipation, it becomes clear why she is already regarded as the alpha female.
The North-West Londoner has proved that less is more, and the anticipation for new music continues to build, leaving fans eagerly waiting to see what Mnelia does next.
