Discovery: Melanie Wehbe

Melanie Wehbe is a Stockholm, Sweden-based pop artist who has caught my attention through her liberating ode to self love. It’s called Like I Do.

Like I Do opens with a pulsating bass beat, which is met with snatches of percussion. Melanie’s vocals are the focal point, smooth, confident and emotive. The stripped-back first verse gives way to a synth-filled electro pop second one before the track hits its climax during a life-affirming chorus.

Melanie has been writing songs since the age of fourteen, and has penned track for Swedish Idol winners and the Eurovision Song Contest. Her debut EP Bloom is on its way, and Like I Do is the first single take from it. You can check it out below.
