Premiere: Melissa Bel – ‘Dirty Word’

Influenced by the likes of the legendary Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder, Canadian singer-songwriter Melissa Bel is set to release her new album in November.

Now based in the UK, after following her heart to be with the person she loves, Bel has now shared a new track from the album. ‘Dirty Word’ is an uptempo offering, filled with infectious pop hooks and Bel’s smooth, soulful vocals. With shades of the likes of Meghan Trainor and Taylor Swift, it’s an undeniably catchy, iridescent pop anthem.

Here you can listen to ‘Dirty Word’ for the first time, and exclusively download it for free:

‘Dirty Word’ is set for release 21 October, with Bel’s new album In The Light out 4 November via Belhop Records. You can pre-order the album here.
