TOMORROW.

Life+Times spends the day with Melanie Fiona as she prepares to release her sophomore album The MF Life. Here, the critically acclaimed, two-time Grammy Award winning singer takes us through her new Brooklyn neighborhood, discusses “living the MF life” and even runs into a familiar Kings County face, Spike Lee.

Grammy-winner Melanie Fiona sings Brooklyn’s praises in anonymity
But R&B artist’s new album ‘The MF Life’ could set her on path to stardom

Melanie Fiona gets a lot of double takes when she’s out and about in her Fort Greene neighborhood.

“People never think it’s actually me,” laughs the 29-year-old R&B singer.

“They’re like, ‘You look just like Melanie Fiona … but Melanie Fiona would never be on the G train, and if she was, she would have four security guards around her.’”

There’s no entourage in sight as Fiona dips into a bowl of lentil soup in Zaytoon’s Middle Eastern restaurant on Myrtle Ave.

The Canadian-born Guyanese beauty has been living under the radar in Brooklyn since the beginning of February.

“I ride the train. I run outside. I go get my own groceries and toiletries at the drugstore,” she says with a shrug.

That comfortable anonymity is about to change.

Even after her first album, 2009’s “The Bridge,” earned two Grammy nominations, Fiona remained relatively unknown.

Her star continued to rise after she toured with Alicia Keys in 2010 and scored management under Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation.

But then Cee Lo Green invited her to collaborate on the 2011 hit single “Fool For You,” which won two Grammys last month.

And with her hotly anticipated sophomore album “The MF Life” out Tuesday, Fiona is poised to become a household name like her idols Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston.
