Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes’ Protegé T’Melle Is Back On The Scene
ATLANTA, GA (Aug. 19, 2015) – R&B singer, songwriter and dancer and Hip Hop’s newly-minted “Bad Girl,” T’Melle, returns to the spotlight with a sultry new video for her mid-tempo single “Drop It Down.” The Philly-born, Atlanta-raised artist got her start as the protegé of TLC superstar Lisa “Left Eye Lopes,” but suffered near death injuries as a passenger in the fatal crash that took her mentor’s life. In a recent interview, T’Melle unveiled what happened just before that crash and her unstoppable struggle to walk, run and now dance again. What the doctors said would never happen…DID.
“I’m the girl that still had hope when life took a turn. After a tragic car accident I was told I might never run or dance again. Losing “Left Eye,” the person I looked up to, who impacted the world, was one of the hardest things I’ve ever been through! I’m the girl that people told to quit and that this wasn’t going to happen for me. I’m the girl who’s been told ‘No’ way more than the word yes! I believed! I still believe!” T’Melle proudly says. “I represent Survival, Determination and Empowerment! And I say it through my music! I’m the person who motivates people like I motivated myself, to never give up! My music speaks volumes with my message and edgy R&G (Rhythm and Gangsta) content!
As a teen, T’Melle moved to Atlanta to pursue her solo career and has worked with producers the likes of Usher Raymond, Tricky Stewart, Bryan Cox, and Rodney Jenkins. Now T’Melle takes over the summer with her sexy new single, “Drop it Down,” giving her fans just a taste of what new music is to come. “[This is] a feel good video that moves you and put’s you in a 90’s feel where people hung out at the playground to get away from their problems. It’s about different age groups getting together and uniting but also how life can change in a minute all from a bad decision and what’s going on in the world today!” the Philly native says.
