Idol Alum Melinda Doolittle Debuts New Dance Track

One of American Idol’s all-time favorites, Melinda Doolittle, is slowly becoming a household hame. Her new soulful song, “It’s Your Love,” is headed straight to the dance floor with three distinct mixes!

Like every song on her debut solo album, Coming Back to You, “It’s Your Love” is a bold, belting number. Three of the hottest remixers/DJs in the world, Jason Nevins, Mike Rizzo, and Smashmode have each worked the song into a dance-friendly club anthem.

Melinda says, "I am so excited tore-introduce one of my favorite songs from the album in a whole new way. I personally love to dance, but regardless of your skill on the floor, it’s all about having fun and this song makes everybody move!"

With production by Grammy-nominated producer Mike Mangini (Joss Stone, The Jonas Brothers), Doolittle is an R&B force that combines the electricity of Tina Turner’s early years with the slick production and lush instrumentation of today’s pop-soul sound.

Dolittle has been getting rave reviews from all over the place! Ellen Degeneres praised her saying , “One of the great singers to come out of America Idol…Amazing! Amazing!”

The New York Times: “It succeeds mightily, sometimes thrillingly…Ms. Doolittle has a radiant voice, an urgent singing style and a knack for classic R&B. She conjures the vitality of
an old-fashioned record date, along the lines of vintage Gladys Knight.”

Entertainment Weekly: “Doolittle channels TinaTurner and Aretha Franklin over live band arrangementsthat feel fresh-faced and old-school at the same time.”

People: “Like a young Tina Turner, she cango from slinky purr to a mighty, gospel-charged growl on vintage R&B numbers that’ll keep you coming back for more.”

These reviews prove that you don’t have to win Idol to make your mark in the music business. Chris Daughtry, started his own band that has had numerous chart topping singles! And who could forget Jennifer Hudson!? She won an Oscar! Can anybody’s career really get any better than that? Get out on that dance floor and shake your groove thing to Melida’s new song! You’ll be glad you did!
