Melanie Fiona visited Walmart Soundcheck to perform songs from her second album ‘The MF Life’. The live set included ‘This Time’, ‘Give It To Me Right’, ‘Running’, ‘Wrong Side Of A Love Song’, ‘It Kills Me’ and ‘4AM’.
During an interview with the Canadian R&B singer, she talked about the album, wanting it send a message that it’s okay to go thru ups and downs life sends you, how not knowing where your partner is late at night inspired her song ‘4AM’, loving to perform the passionate songs on the disc live, doing a lot of in-studio writing in contrast to her debut, and more.
“I’m a very emotional writer,” Fiona admitted. “I’m not the world class, A-list writer that can get it and write a hit song for myself and others. I have to be in the right mentality and right state of mind and place and environment to be able to really express because I feel that when I write it is like opening up a page in my diary. I have to be in that right mood and setting to be able to do my best work. I find that my creative juices, when they’re flowing, it’s good. I have to strike when the iron is hot and it makes for a better song.”
