So, MJ, what’s next?

By Melissa Jane

 

Yo yo! I hope everyone is enjoying this gorgeous weather we are having!

I’ve had a ton of people ask me lately “So, MJ, what’s next for you?” or ” What have you been working on lately?” or ” When ‘s your next show?” Although there are some EXCITING things in the works that I can’t share just yet, I can tell you this:

Lately I’ve taken a break from my normally busy performing schedule to write and record my new EP! It’s going to be 5 songs in total and all of them have never been released before! This is going to include the song I did in LA with Devine Evans and The Senate (credits include Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Chris Brown, just to name a few) one that I recorded here in Boston with RIO (credits include Wyclef Jean, Akon, Jada, Dropkick Murphys) and others that I am currently working on! Stay tuned for a release date as well as info on a release party!

Coming VERY soon is the official release of my new photoshoot pics! Here’s another teaser photo for you… Hehehe…

I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend! I leave you with one of my favorite quotes:

“Many things in life will catch your eye… Few will catch your heart- Pursue those…” <3

California Love <3

Hey hey hey! Hope everyone is having an awesome Monday so far! (or at least as awesome as a Monday CAN be, haha) I just touched down in Boston a couple of days ago after spending a week in sunny southern California! I was there writing and recording with the ridiculously talented producer Devine Evans and his amazingly fabulous songwriting team “The Senate” (credits include Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Chris Brown, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, and many, many others).

Now, I will admit it- I was a tad nervous when I arrived. But that went away fast once we got rolling. They were so great to work with! I was def pushed outside my comfort zone of how I am used to doing things in the studio, since I am so used to working with my team here in Boston and how we do things. You see, there is no right or wrong way to write a song, so long as you wind up with an amazing product in the end. But working with The Senate and seeing how they do things was definitely eye opening for me. The talent and creativity these writers have is just incredible! Each person on the team brought their own individual artistry to the table that made my record complete. Including myself, there were 7 writers on my song, holy moly! LOL…

We were only able to complete 1 song because, while I was there, Devine was also busy doing the production for Rihanna and Nicki Minaj’s tours (Umm, no big deal!!!) So, while he was doing that I was able to get some much needed R&R by the pool and spent some time with my good friend Joanne and her adorable puppy Uree! She took me to the Hollywood Walk of Fame- here’s a pic of me with on of my biggest idols’ star!
Needless to say, I didn’t want to come home! Ahhh, I can’t wait to go back! So, stay tuned for the release of my hot new track that I recorded with Devine Evans and The Senate, and def stay tuned for my next adventure~!

Much Love,

MJ xoxo
