EDITORS’ NOTES

Mere months after her album phAses helped the Dominican-American artist transition from go-to hip-hop feature to solo act in her own right, Melii follows up with an EP that further embraces her fluidity. The ethereal “Here We Go Again” dips from English to Spanish and back again with ease, as does the tropical pop cautionary tale “Nena.” The R&B threads that held much of her prior release together continue here too, as she dissects toxic romance on “Paris” with surgical precision. With Gyptian there to lend rootsy vibes, she showcases comfort in a dancehall mode on the hip-hop hybrid “High for U.”
