Melanie Amaro finally premieres her debut single, “Don’t Fail Me Now.” The dance-pop tune comfortably places the Caribbean singer in the category with X Factor UK winners, Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke. Despite possessing powerhouse vocals, the singers downplay them by singing over extremely polished, generic productions.
The song is current, but it certainly isn’t timeless. Considering Darkchild produced the beat, I expected more R&B influence. Hopefully ‘Fail’ isn’t a precursor of Melanie’s contribution to music, but it’ll do (for now).
