Best of 2010 Singles: #17 Melanie Fiona, "It Kills Me"
"It Kills Me" is a gorgeous throwback ballad, big as they come, but not in a Whitney-cum-Deborah-Cox (speaking of Canadian R&B divas) way; this is from the Gladys Knight school. Surprisingly, it spent 9 weeks atop the US R&B chart this past summer, and earned every one of 'em. With the right material (more of this, please), Fiona could have a career. Otherwise, well, remember Deborah Cox?
