“Red Mercedes II” by Elion Melody

Several releases separate “Red Mercedes” from the 2022 sequel and the wait? It was worth it. One can hear a definite growth in what Elion Melody is capable of, and with beats reminiscent of Shawn Mendes with a delivery that harkens back to Usher during his ‘8701’ era, you get this wonderful blend of contemporary pop and chill yet vibrant R&B sound that is nothing but inviting. 

On the surface, “Red Mercedes II” is this genuinely romantic song that will make hearts yearn for more. It is the type of song that belongs on playlists alongside Bruno Mars and Boyz II Men as a sort of hidden gem to discover. Digging deeper though, Elion Melody was poetic in the thought process when putting his latest together. Comparing settling into a new love to the idea of cruising down the highway, you can hear that as well in the general layout of the song as it creates this poised, relaxed, and romantic ambiance from start to finish. 

Earlier this year Elion Melody started to make major moves in the studio working with audio engineer Braulio Rodriguez who has worked alongside everyone from Jay-Z to Post Malone. His effort is proving worthy. “Red Mercedes II is the second single from Elion Melody this year, following his collaboration with Smoothsaylin and Motion Sickness on “Bittersweet.” Almost at a dozen releases, Elion Melody is continuing his rise to the top of the contemporary R&B scene.
