Sweetest of Melody is the fourth single from this beloved singer released by the label. The single is part of the upcoming EP Rina, to be released in 2022 by Phillie-BOP’s future indie label Soul Phinesse Records.

“Sweetest of Melody” is earmarked to hit the streets on November 6th. It’s no coincidence that the chosen date is Rina’s birthday, making this a cherry-on-top moment.
The song is a combination of smooth Jazz, RnB with a classic soul and pop flare. It’s a heartfelt love song with a wide variety of instrumentation, all arranged consummately to fit the format perfectly. The saxophone riffs by Terry Thompson are smooth as can be and bring out the track’s heart and soul.
As always …. Rina’s vocal performance is dazzling, coupled with featured vocalist Senghor Robinson in the second verse, which rounds out this stellar single.
