R&B/pop vocalist Melvin Moore (aka OneInThe4Rest) moved from behind the scenes to forge a career of his own, with a variety of high-caliber collaborators in tow. Before stepping out as an artist in his own right, Moore spent years working as a songwriter, penning tracks for the likes of Nicki Minaj, French Montana, Big Sean, and Tyga. Growing up Moore took it upon himself to learn piano and guitar, but it wasn't until 2008 -- when he moved from Kansas to Los Angeles -- that he started pursuing production and songwriting; it was in L.A. that he befriended Grammy award-winning producer Raphael Saadiq, who let Moore use his studio for free and imparted invaluable lessons concerning the industry. Moore's first major songwriting credit was on Trey Songz's 2011 track "Unusual." From there he went on to work on Robin Thicke's 2013 album Blurred Lines. In 2015, Moore developed a working relationship with R&B singer Chris Brown, whom he would regularly send ideas to; fast-forward two years, to 2017, and Brown returned the favor by appearing on Moore's debut single "Jiu Jitsu." ~ Liam Martin
