Ellenor Kim’s debut single, Melanin which has been released both as an audio and a video is about the appreciation of dark/brown skin beauty. Her being a dark skin girl, she has witnessed firsthand the discrimination against dark women and it really hurts so she was inspired to make a groovy but inspirational song for all black women and men.

Over the years there has been a lot of societal discrimination (knowingly/unknowingly) towards people of dark complexion especially women. In some careers especially media it is common to see their preference of light skinned women when scouting for talents like news anchors. The societal pressure it places on dark skin women is too much as it creates low esteem and discontentment.

The singer says this song is a dedication to this special group of African queens and kings. Everyone who has been a victim of this discrimination should be get inspired and be comfortable in their own skin whenever they hear this song.
