Meiko Featured On ‘Perez Hilton’s Pop Up! #6’ Compilation

Perez Hilton has featured Meiko‘s song “Sweeter” as Track #1 on his new Perez Hilton’s Pop Up! #6 compilation, available on iTunes now. “The first song you hear on a compilation like this is the most important, I think, because people have short attention spans”, Perez says, “and it also sets the tone for the rest of the songs you’re going to find on the compilation. I’m thrilled that I was able to get a song from Meiko, somebody I’ve supported for a very long time, to kick things off!”

Meiko’s month-long co-headlining tour with Emerson Hart of Tonic kicks off October 7 at The Iridium in NYC.
