Melly Rose is a soca sensation, and her Trinidadian roots are to thank for that.
Melly Rose, who was born Melissa St. Rose in Trinidad and Tobago, is all set on her tracks to becoming a musical superstar. Like many artistic geniuses, Melly Rose started singing at a young age. She got herself in the church choir when she was just six years old. This shaped her knowledge of music and aided in the development of her talents as a singer.
Melly’s musical style is a fresh combination of worldwide elements known as soca. Melly Rose’s association with performers from the Caribbean islands, the African region, and modern American musicians has enabled her to build a distinct musical sound that is difficult to overlook or undervalue.
Melly took the plunge and returned to Trinidad & Tobago to pursue soca music after attending the Morgan State University in the United States. This action truly represents who she is: enthusiastic, bold, and devoted. Melly has benefited the most from the move in terms of creativity. Rose has been obsessed with inventiveness and has been associated with a few of the greatest in the twin-island republic’s music sector.
Rose’s singing inspirations and styles shifted as she grew older. Her inspirations include Sizzla, Machel Montano, Patrice Roberts, Billy Holiday, Chris De Burgh, 2Face, and Marvin Gay. Soca, Afrobeat, Jazz, and Reggae are all among her favorite genres.
Rose’s drive for music led to her playing in different college performances around the United States and overseas, including Ghana, while she was living in the United States. Melly’s slogan is ‘Music is Me,’ and it has always been the same despite numerous transitions and ups and downs in her life.
When questioned by her mother about her choices, Melly told her that soca is her passion, and she doesn’t want to live a life full of ugly regrets if she doesn’t choose soca as her musical genre. Music had always been Melly Rose’s safe haven and one thing that has stuck with her all through her life.
Melly’s love for soca music and her career in soca music is a clear indication that the artist isn’t afraid of choosing what resonates on the same frequency as hers. Melly is a unique and authentic voice in soca music.
“I love soca. I love my culture, the music, and the food. I’m a little bit too much about how I dress up, and I love dyed hair. When it came to determining what kind of music I wanted to do and what genre, I thought I really wanted to do soca. I want to go home and do soca,” claimed Melly Rose. This was when she decided to return back to her homely island and make music from over there, and so far, all of it has been a hit.
Melly’s future in the world of music is super-bright, and anyone in the music industry can see it. And who knows, Melly may even win a Grammy or two in some time!
