Melissa Steel has written new music with fellow artist Shola Ama.
The “Imagine” star recently provided guest vocals on JKAY’s single “Danger,” co-written by Aminata “A*M*E” Kabba, Caroline Ailin, Marvin Humes, and Uzoechi “MNEK” Emenike.
As a songwriter, Ama co-wrote Taya’s “Got Me Wondering” alongside Eyelar Mirzazadeh and the song’s producer Tommy “Toddla T” Bell.
Ama also co-wrote “Good Friends” for UK girl group M.O alongside Janee “Jin Jin” Bennett and Gareth “Bless Beats” Keane.
Meanwhile, Steel is expected to release her first studio collection – featuring promotional singles “Kisses for Breakfast” and “You Love Me” – later this year via Warner Music Group / Atlantic Records.
The still-untitled project reportedly features productions from Diztortion (Ms. Dyanmite), Tre Jean Marie (KAYTRANADA), Michael Angelo (Stanaj), Di Genius (Drake), Jonny Lattimer (Anne-Marie), Knox Brown (Dua Lipa), Moon Willis (Justine Skye), Phil Cook (Birdy) and Laconic (Cover Drive).
Steel also collaborated with songwriters Autumn Rowe (Leona Lewis), Viktoria Hansen (All Saints), Jennifer Decilveo (Diana Gordon), Nicola Roberts (Tinashe), Dayo Olatunji (Fifth Harmony) and Sam Romans (Alicia Keys).
