Tell us about yourself and your music
My Gov. name is Tyrique. I’m known as Melo-T. My name came from me singing and playing melodies intertwined with the letter of my first name. I started creating music very young and learned how to play by ear over time. Making beats and writing songs is my best focus I believe. I’m married & recently became a first-time dad in 2019. I work a 9-5 job to support my family(for a guaranteed income) but I strive toward my dream/career to set a platform for my family. I’ve been releasing more music lately and have produced for multiple artists. I plan to land a deal that will set me up for success in the long run as well as now.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest song I released was “Body” an R&B song aimed toward the grown and sexy. This song sets the mood for lovemaking. Even something to just vibe too because the melodies feel just right to the soul. You can visualize and picture short scenes in your head while listening to the lyrics. From beginning to the end there are no disappointments.
What inspired you to write this release?
I feel the woman’s body (any size) is very powerful. I love my wife and I love her body, heart, and soul. No matter how long you’re with someone, Making love/Having sex should feel new. Making Love to my Lady inspired me to write this song.
Describe the writing and recording process
This song was originally created in 2018 some time. I created the instrumental first. Usually, I make a track and move on to the next creation. Something about the rhythm stuck to me. I started humming some melodies and eventually filled in the mumble with words. After writing the song I memorized it to characterize the versus how I wanted. Recorded the song through Protools 8.1 with stock plug-ins. Mixed it to the best of my ability to get the best quality. Thought now was the right time to put “Body” out.
Any plans to release a video?
