Mel 4Ever is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry, unafraid to be bold and unapologetically herself. Her latest track, “Go Bitch!” featuring Fraxiom, is a testament to her fearless attitude and creative talent.
The song was inspired by a tumultuous one-night stand with someone who ultimately strung Mel along and emotionally manipulated her. In response, Mel wrote “Go Bitch!” as an exercise in release and enlisted Fraxiom to add their own “bestie” perspective. The creative process for this track was refreshingly smooth, with the lyrics flowing out in just 15 minutes and Fraxiom’s verse written in 10.

Read the full interview below:
What inspired you to write “Go Bitch!” and how did this collaboration with Fraxiom come about? I literally fell in love with this guy after a one-night stand. I thought it was a “love at first sight” situation. I later found out his family and friends don’t know he’s “into” trans girls and he promptly strung me along and emotionally manipulated me. This song is my answer to that. I wanted it to be a fun dance song though, kind of like an exercise in release…so I asked my friend Fraxiom to jump on the track. The way they related to the song was from a “bestie” point of view. Kind of like “Go bitch you’re the shit no matter what.”
Can you describe your creative process for this track and how it differed from your past work? This song was written in like 15 minutes. It’s a diary entry–vulnerable and angry. It was easy to write and the same for Fraxiom. They wrote their verse in about 10 minutes and we put the pieces together, making very little edits. It’s a rare thing for synergy to be so smooth.
What challenges do you face when creating and how do you overcome them? I’m always asking myself, “What are people going to think?” “What if no one likes it?” “What if I fall between the cracks and make no impression?” I have to realize that those are all questions coming from fear. I have to remind myself that I am a fearless person. That is who Mel 4Ever is at her core. So I continue.
How do you feel your experience as a trans woman has influenced your music and songwriting? I experience life in an intense way. It’s a polarizing experience, at least for me–especially in a large city. You can’t really transition under the radar and if you are at all cognizant of the status of politics, it’s hard to stay silent. I channel all of that into my music and performances.
You mentioned the song was born out of torment. How do you navigate the emotional toll of writing and performing personal songs? I let the moment hit me, and once I am out of the initial moments of stress, anger, or frenzy, I start to write. But I never forget those feelings. I tap into them on stage.
What can fans expect from your upcoming EP and how does “Go Bitch!” fit into the overall sound and theme of the project? This EP has absolutely no chill, no hidden or subliminal messaging. The lyrics are blatant and so are the sounds.
The definition of Contrast is “to be strikingly different.” What makes you strikingly different? I’m a hell-raising demon slut whore.
