Info

Melanie Adele Martinez (/ˈmɛlʌn ˈmɑːrtnɛz/; born April 28, 1995)[3][4] is an American singer, songwriter, music video director, and photographer. Born in Astoria, Queens and raised in Baldwin, New York on Long Island, she first participated in the MSG Varsity Talent Show during her junior year of high school, and subsequently rose to prominence in 2012 after appearing on the American television vocal talent show The Voice. She auditioned singing Britney Spears's "Toxic", and made it to the Top 6 before being eliminated in the fifth week of live shows.

Immediately following her departure from the show, she began independent work on original material. Having been a fan favorite, she was heavily supported by fans, and produced her first music video for her single, "Dollhouse", her second most successful single to date, having been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Signing to Atlantic Records soon after, she released her debut EP, Dollhouse (2014).

Martinez later released her debut studio album Cry Baby (2015), which debuted at number 6 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA. The three singles from the album had been released in the months leading up to the release of the album.[5] Her second studio album is currently in the works and is expected to be released in January 2018.

Martinez is often cited as one of the only major successes of The Voice.[6] Her music mostly revolves around the protagonist of her concept album, Cry Baby, and discusses themes of family disputes, body image, romance, and coming-of-age. She is known for her two-toned hair.[7]
