The video was released through Essence Produced by Dallas Austin, the track is threaded over a sample of Mint Condition’s “Breaking My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)” and finds Remy breaking it down more than skin-deep to convey her empowering outlook on self-love. “As a proud black woman, I wanted to highlight black women and celebrate our beauty and strength.” Stream and purchase song here: http://smarturl.it/MelaninMagic
“Melanin Magic” is the follow-up to her recent hit “Wake Me Up” featuring Lil Kim, which fast became the most added song on urban radio as it stormed up the charts. Both tracks will be featured on Remy’s forthcoming album 7 Winters & 6 Summers, which is set for a 2018 release. Remy also invited fans via socials to choose the cover art for “Melanin Magic,” wanting to broaden the conversation about ‘inner and outer beauty while celebrating both.’
