The buoyant title track opens the album with Gershwin/Tower of Power-inspired horn fanfare and gutsy, autobiographical lyrics. “I wanted to lay claim to my version of a show biz song,” she says. “‘You Gotta Love The Life’ is really that macro- and microcosm, realizing with time and maturity that talent is only the point of departure. Talent is that central nugget, but it’s the reality of the life and the grind that you face every single day. You have to be okay with this version of normal and it’s really not for anybody who has any reservations.” Lead single “Feelin’ For You,” which goes to radio on January 19, is a snaky, flirty tune with electrifying guitar work from Keb’ Mo’ and demonstrates how even a brief conversation can serve as a jumping-off point for a song.

Strength can often be found in the midst of struggle. It's in those moments of hardship that we fully understand who we are and what we're really capable of. Grammy Award-nominated R&B singer, songwriter, and producer Tank realized that in late 2012. While working on the TGT super group album, Three Kings, with Ginuwine and Tyrese, he simultaneously endured a string of revelatory personal shakeups.
"Those were some trying times from a relationship standpoint," he admits. "We were finally getting TGT together, and I was going through it personally. Everything was happening all at once, and it was a lot to face. I went through this headache and heartbreak, but I emerged in a better place. That's when music started coming to me. I was initially trying to hide everything behind this heavy and intense 808 vibe, and I leaned towards my strengths instead. I started playing piano and drums again as well as adding live instruments. In the past, I've only made music in the middle of a storm or on my way into one. This was the first time I made music under sunshine. I've been blessed to have a great story and testimony now."
They say things are bigger in Texas, but in the case of songstress Mélat, big things come in small packages. Her music seems to carry an other-worldly sound. Based out of San Antonio and Austin, her talents are flourishing and it is apparent on her latest release, Daphne, from her upcoming project Canon Ourania: The Illumination EP. Her debut EP Canon Aphaea, released in November of 2012. Since then, the EP, with lyrical concepts rooted in soul, love, dance, and inner strength, has been drawing attention to the up and coming star. The production perfectly encapsulates Mélat's airy almost gypsy-like vibe and aura, and her powerful yet smooth vocal ability keeps the listener?drawn into her message. It is safe to say that the future is looking bright for this songstress.
