‘Tis the season to be grateful and here at Trendio, we are incredibly grateful for Melanie Martinez. On Christmas’ Eve Eve, the 20-year-old musician released a standalone single titled “Gingerbread Man” as an early present for her fans.

It bleeds jelly” sings Martinez during the second verse of the song. Listen to “Gingerbread Man” below! I’m frosting I don’t need a man to make my life sweet Prince charming...more

Cry Baby is The Voice’s Melanie Martinez’s debut album. After the wild ride that she had with her Carousel EP, whose title track was chosen as the main theme for the popular horror series American Horror Story: Freakshow, Martinez is back with a chest full of new shiny toys to share. The album’s title might initially strike you as infantile and that’s exactly what the 20-year-old musician wants — there’s a catch though. Childish is not often used to describe something that is particularly good or at all enjoyable, but it is when paired with Martinez’s quirky and twisted story telling. Cry...more
