“Momma Said” by M3L is Out Now

by The Alchemist

M3L (Pronounced Mel) is a Toronto based independent recording artist and songwriter. Born in Cameroon yet raised in six countries, his music embodies the lived experiences of a “Third Culture” kid, with roots in Anglophone Afrobeats and Hiphop/R&B, as well as Francophone Zouk and Coupé-Décalé music. His ability to flow seamlessly between English and French makes for a unique listening experience and showcases elite versatility He also went to high school in the DMV, and reps the 301!


The Toronto upstart is currently working alongside locally based Engineer/Producer PANDELI, Muaz Production (Jazz Cartier, Sean Leon, Smino etc), and Goodwrkwill. Frequent collaborators include R&B songstress Kenya Jade, urban-pop boyband 3409, punk dynamo AD1B and emerging pop act Sheperd.


This track reflects upon knowledge passed on to M3L through his Mother as a child. The track starts with M3L saying, “Momma said chase revenge, never gon see the end,” and continues to give us more memories of what his Mother said. This is a very motivational track, that helps remind us just how important our Mother’s all are to us! Check it out below, and on our weekly playlist.
