The forthright R&B, Pop artist's music takes influence from pop-R&B and soul icons such as Arthea Franklin, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, and Dionne Warwick -- whose work she absorbed as a youngster.
Meilani's music utilizes throwback-samples and R&B melodies which sound right at home over today's booming trap-laden beats. Her vocals are silky, yet raspy, which adds additional flare to her music.
