We have a sneaking suspicion that no one knows what to do with Melanie Amaro. After winning the inaugural US season of The X Factor, the big-voiced singer was given a techno version of an Aretha Franklin song to sing, shilled Burger King during the Super Bowl, and then disappeared. Earlier this month, we finally got wind of her debut single, the forgettable “Don’t Fail Me Now”, complete with generic inspirational messages and an unnecessary electro breakdown. Today we get “Love Me Now” — why is Melanie always insisting we do things right “now”? Give us a minute! — and at best, it’s another personality-lacking, repetitive slow jam where she’s practically belting the whole song. Can someone please save this girl’s career before it starts?

Listen to “Love Me Now” below.

    I LOVE BOTH songs she’s put out.
    She has such an amazing voice!!!
    I would agree that we haven’t seen the best of her talents because of the song choices by Epic or Sony or whomever – but hopefully there’s still much more to come…don’t kill her out of the gate!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks that all her songs are just crap. The girl has a beautiful voice, but they’re giving her all of the wrong material. There’s no artistry or restraint whatsoever.

  3. Anita

    Melanie Amaro is a classic example of a wonderful talent that is being wasted because of her record lable’s choice of songs. This latest song of hers is simply repetitive nonsense. She’s worthy of so much more. Put her in a Broadway musical or as an opening act for another top notch performer. She really needs to showcase her talent.
