New York’s Melii drops “Icey,” a potent mixture of dirty, blown out bass and biting flows.
After blowing up with a handful of remixes for Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” and Logic’s “1–800,” New York rapper-singer Melii is ready to release original tracks, packed with an unheard of charisma. “Icey” is a potent mixture of dirty, blown out bass and biting flows. Melii stays in her pocket while playing with the depth of her inflections, keeping the track from drowning in its own grit.
Produced by CT Beats, “Icey” features one of Melii’s harsher flows, paired with an attractive nonchalance. On the single, Melii is on top of the world and she knows it, spitting about all the labels and men courting her — but she can’t be bothered. Much like her “Bodak Yellow” remix, Melii also brings in her native Spanish, ensuring that “Icey” maintains her unique voice and perspective.
