Perfect Girl is a boom-bap soul song by singer Melo B Jones. The song is from her 2017 EP titled ‘The Start’. Melo B Jones is one of the most unique voices on the Johannesburg underground scene. She has over the years carved a niche for herself with a boom-bap inclination that draws from the Motown-era sounds she heard at home growing up, to the influences absorbed through the underground hip-hop scene of Cape Town during her varsity days.
“All these musical genres contribute to my sound, which I call boom bap soul. I describe myself as a soul singer who is influenced by hip-hop beats, melodies and drums” she says. “My music is sweet and sultry with elements of soul. However, my body of work expands from soul to house and R&B music as I’m vocally diverse. My voice appeals to different crowds, and my sound has a local and international feel.”
A Perfect addition to the Urban Afro Playlist.
