Melanie Fiona Chucks The Dueces To Her Record Label
Melanie Fiona is now an indie artist.
According to Billboard, the songstress left Universal earlier this year for a new partnership with Pepsi and Complex Media.
“I’m at a place where I can make music very creatively free, and working with Pepsi was just very easy,” she said. “With labels, there’s a whole plan and everybody’s talking about all these different things at once. But with Pepsi and Complex, it was just, ‘here’s some of our ideas, what are yours, and we’ll see you on the day of the shoot.’ It was very relaxed and wasn’t stressful at all. And to know that they wanted to create a visual for it was so cool – I wouldn’t have had my own ice cream truck with my name on it had I done this myself! It’s like, wild.”
The Toronto native produced two albums under Motown, 2009’s The Bridge and 2012’s The MF Life.
