Melissa Bel reveals video for ‘Big Boys Don’t Cry’!

Following the success of her latest album In The Light, Toronto born Melissa Bel returns with a joy-filled new video for her single Big Boys Don’t Cry, out now via Belhop Records and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.

The video premiered on Celeb Mix and is available to stream on Melissa’s YouTube channel now.

Melissa explains Big Boys Don’t Cry is “the song that’s supposed to cheer you up after a breakup”. Its an upbeat slice of catchy pop, combining Bel’s powerful soul vocals and uptempo jazzy beats to create a fun-filled and impassioned track. Oozing elements of ‘60s doo-wop alongside buoyant refrains and honey-sweet harmonies akin to the likes of Meghan Trainor, it’s an instantly contagious and undeniably uplifting creation. The video complements the track perfectly, with Melissa strolling around her adopted hometown of Exeter happily alongside her friends after kicking out her ex. The ideal antidote for fixing a broken heart.

You can also stream the single now via Melissa’s Soundcloud page.

Melissa grew up listening to soul and classic rock and draws inspiration from the likes of Stevie WonderAretha Franklin and Christina Aguilera amongst others. She also regularly receives creative support from producer/songwriter Justin Gray, who has worked with artists such as Joss StoneJohn Legend and Amy Winehouse and also produced Melissa’s last album.

Now, with acclaim from the likes of Gigslutz and The Vinyl District under her belt, Bel offers another enlivening treat with the video for Big Boys Don’t Cry.
