It’s been a while since the DopeHouse spotlighted Houston-based artist Mélat (via her 2018 project with Jansport J, Move Me 2: The Present), but the songstress resurfaces with a new single and video, “After All.”
The lead single from her forthcoming project of the same name, Mélat spoke to Billboard about it. “It’s definitely the most fun project that I’ve done,” she said. “You listen to ‘After All’ and it’s definitely a more uptempo vibe [compared to] what I’ve done before. There’s a few more gems like that on this project that shows my evolution of communicating. The way I used to write was definitely a lot more vague and ephemeral, and now it’s a little more grounded. There’s this notion about quiet girls not having anything [important] to say, and that’s untrue. Maybe it doesn’t pop into their head as quickly, but there’s so many people who have all these gems in their mind and are just nervous to put it out. So it’s those people that I’m really gunning for and hopefully be an inspiration for them.”
Directed by B.B. Araya, the video can be seen below.
