The follow up to Melanie Fiona's 2009 debut The Bridge and her 2011 Grammy-winning duet "Fool for You" with Cee Lo, The MF Life is dense with rich vocals, heartache, empowerment and vintage soul. On the lead single "4 AM," the Canadian songstress waits restlessly for a cheating lover to come home. Later, on "6 AM," T-Pain plays the guilty guy from "4 AM," singing his defense after a drunken night. An argument ensues to the tune of a real-deal R&B duet. This authenticity permeates the album, which features cameos from J. Cole, Nas, B.o.B., and John Legend. On the bewildered plea "Wrong Side of the Love Song," Fiona finds herself on love's losing end, while "Bones" is a shameless jam about getting to the core—"straight through your skin, past your soul to your bones/ further inside you than you've ever known."
