[Music Review] Melanie Fiona’s ‘The MF Life’

My sincerest apologies for the two day absence but I needed time to collect my thoughts.

Melanie Fiona has a new album out. Well, to be more precise, the album has been released since mid-March. ‘The MF Life‘ is the singer’s sophomore effort highlighting a turning point in her life.
