Melvoni’s star-turning 2020 continues today with the release of “Chrome,” a sinister but buoyant anthem about the determination that’s helped make him one of the brightest Brooklyn-bred prospects in recent history. He’s spent the year releasing infectious singles on Melvoni Approved Fridays (MAF) that mark his territory as a force to be reckoned with out of the famed King’s County. “Chrome” is no different.
As is customary with Melvoni, “Chrome” isn’t all braggadocio and vanity. “I feel like I’m Tune right before the tune,” he raps at one point, ensuring that he doesn’t break from his flow pocket. The nod to prime Lil’ Wayne one of the slicker one-liners you’ll hear from the 16-year-old artist, but it’s hardly an anomaly. His ability to seamlessly blend wordplay and melody into his work is what’s earned him a spot on the radars of millions in 2020. “Chrome,” a shining example of that dexterity, is a song you only need to hear once to love.
Melvoni’s rise might be awe-inspiring to the average eye, but his momentum heading into 2021 isn’t all that surprising. Despite his youth he’s been diligently consistent, from releases like “Penny Up” and “One Man Army” over the summer, to “Stackhouse,” a standout from his #MelvoniApprovedFriday campaign. Additionally, a captivating freestyle appearance on Funk Flex’s #FunkFlexBlockwork show has Melvoni right where he wants to be as the fourth quarter transitions into the new year: within striking distance of true stardom.
“It was the struggle, but you don’t really know it’s the struggle,” starts the Brooklyn rapper as he tells the Pigeons & Planes team about his upbringing. His positive outlook on what was constant struggle in his childhood helps explain his approach to music, and his ability to bring brightness to the darkest of themes.
