Today, Emmy Meli has released her brand new cheeky single, “Breakthrough.”

The single finds Meli once again showcasing her powerful vocals in this modern track that acts as a breakup anthem that hits with the realization that a toxic relationship is never worth it.

To go alongside the release of the single, an accompanying music video for “Breakthrough” was also unveiled today to further exemplify the meaning behind the song. It finds Meli surrounded by her friends as she unleashes a fun loving video that gives a nod to her past life working on a golf course. Radiating self assurance, this video serves as a powerful reminder that settling for anything less than what we deserve is not an option.

About the track, Meli shares “‘Breakthrough’ the song and the video are a nod to a time in my life when I worked as a cart girl on a golf course – I was working hard to create my life in music and going thru romantic turmoil at the same time.  The music displays my love of Motown while the lyrics have a go at Virgos – all in good fun mind you!  I wanted to make sure to incorporate that “dance it away” vibe as we’ve all heard a million sad breakup songs.  After all, in life all we can truly do is turn negative experiences into positive ones—-Pain into art, lemons into lemonade.”

Breaking out in late 2021, Meli reached viral stardom with her self-love mantra “I Am Woman.” Stemming from sticky note affirmations she left for herself, the empowering single urges female listeners to claim their personal power.  The acclaimed track was selected as the theme song for Megan Markle’s podcast “Archetypes,” the largest podcast sync in history, and has earned over 350m streams. “It didn’t start as a song, but we tried it in rehearsal and it sounded good,” Emmy explained. “That night I was getting ready to go out to a jazz club with some friends and I thought, ‘I’m dressed up, I should make a TikTok –  that became the ‘I Am Woman’ TikTok that was the catalyst.”

However, she feels like the empowering single is just the start to her story.

The R&B/pop singer has since opened for Fletcher, Hayley Kiyoko and performed at Lollapalooza and Firefly Music Festival in 2022.  Her music has appeared in ad campaigns for Intimissimi, Triumph UK, Savage Fenty, and Disney+.

Music threads through the young artist’s life, with everything leading up to this next era.  “I have become a person that younger me would have admired so much and a person that younger me really needed in her life,” Meli reflects.
