New Music: Melanie Fiona – Fight Through It

Melanie fiona fight through

Melanie Fiona has been away from our eyes and ears for entirely too long. While she didn’t release much last year, the R&B singer/songwriter has lent her talents to the new promotional mixtape for the upcoming season of HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones.

Delivering the rhythmic “Fight Throught It,” Fiona sings about giving her all through adversity for her loved one, over a subtle ska beat.

“My song is for Cersei [Lannister], the sacrifice,” says Mel. “You bleed for your family, you bleed for your love, you bleed for your loyalty.”

In addition to Fiona; Estelle, Method Man, Snoop Dogg, and more appear on the 15-track ‘Catch the Throne‘ mixtape, which is available now on iTunes.
