Amaro explained, "I'll definitely have that same sound, but I'm going to surprise people with what's on the album and who is on the album. You've got to stick around and wait, I'm not going to give anything away! I would like to work with Mariah Carey
, and you know, whatever artist who wants to do a song with me and thinks they can stand up to my voice!"
She added, "If you're going to come, come strong and believe in your gift. If this is something that you really want, you've got to fight for it. It's not going to just come and fall on your lap. I think I proved that if you put your mind to something, you can do it. I want to inspire people. If I can do it, coming from where I'm coming from with my past, anyone can do it.” Melanie Amaro signed to Epic Records earlier in the month.
