"What you want me to do, I'm sorry... I'm back!" Classic line spoken by Jay-Z in 2006 after coming out of his brief retirement (more like a hiatus) between the Black Album and Kingdome Come LP's.
Also hailing from Brooklyn, songstress Mela Machinko is here to prove she can sing her ass off without a reasonable doubt. Check out this video from her soon to be released project, and read more about it below.
Mela Machinko releases "What You Want Me To Do (I'm Sorry)" in anticipation of her upcoming project "Hov Said It Best".
Mela Machinko has released her anticipated track "What You Want Me To Do (I'm Sorry)". Machinko provides audiences with a fun and quirky dedication to Jay-Z's feature on Mya's "Best of Me" using Jay-Z lyrics as the inspiration to tell her own story with her unforgettable and distinct voice. In this clever and innovative way, Mela allows listeners to be involved in the song in an unprecedented style.
"What You Want Me To Do", produced by Eric G. of 9th Wonder's Soul Council, is the first song from the soon to be released "Hov Said It Best". With successful features on Pharoahe Monch's "Push" and 'Shine", Joe Budden's "Inseparable", Talib Kweli's "Hostile Gospel", numerous features with Jean Grae, as well as the classic summer anthem "Now I'm Being Cool" on the 9th Wonder album "The Wonder Years", Mela Machinko has consistent presence and sound on the Hip Hop & Urban scene. Using Jay-Z references and interpreting his lyrics while molding them into her own original songs, Ms. Machinko's first offering reminds us how infused our everyday speech is with hip hop culture, and specifically her own, with Jay-Z lines.
"Hov Said It Best" is being released soon via W.A.R Media/SoulSpazm.
