Emmy Meli (Disruptor/Arista)
2/3/22

WHAT IT IS: With Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill among her idols, it’s no surprise Emmy Meli has become a modern mouthpiece for contemporary feminism. Inspired by a recent dream, the Torrance, Cal., native scribbled down the lyrics of “I AM WOMAN” while holding down jobs including serving tables and delivering drinks on a golf course. The female-empowerment anthem—not to be confused with the Helen Reddy chestnut of the same name—took off on TikTok and has since amassed 120m+ global streams. Coupling a powerful message with vocal stylings that straddle jazz, R&B, pop and funk, “I AM WOMAN” has catapulted Meli toward a 2022 breakthrough.
