Anth Melo is an American rapper who came into the limelight for his collaborations with the prominent British artist and songwriter, Conor Maynard. He’s popular for his single hits such as “Take It Off” and “I Love It.”
Early Life, Age, and education Background
Anth Melo was born in Virginia, USA, on 21 December 1992 under the Sagittarius zodiac sign, which makes him 28 years old as of mid-2021. He hasn’t disclosed anything about his parents, but was raised with his older sister, Fresia Danny Melo, who sadly passed away in summer 2016 in a road accident. Anth considered Fresia his best friend, who ushered him into rap music. They had a seemingly close relationship and Fresia even allowed him to listen to her Eminem LPs as they were growing up.
ANTH began his career at the age of 17, by uploading his songs to his MySpace audio platform account. ANTH’s “Paralysed” collaboration with Anna O. was selected for the soundtrack of the “Wish of Tomorrow” movie in 2015. In 2018, he released the single “Bad Ting” together with the song’s music video, and some of his other popular songs include “Too Much To Drink” (2018), 2019’s “I Hate U I Love U,” “Amorfoda,” “Selfish,” “Let It Go,” “Medicine,” “Back On It,”“S.I.n.R,” and “Brains and Body” (2020). He gained popularity for releasing “Take It Off” featuring KJr and Jake Barker, and his song “I Love It” with M. Anes also increased his fame.
Some of ANTH’s latest songs include “I’m Good Alone” (2021), about a woman that ANTH had met and dated for five months before she broke his heart. He says that his girlfriend had a son whom he loved as his own, liked spending time with him and even enjoyed taking him to karate classes. However, ANTH realised that his girlfriend was cheating on him with her ex-fiance, and other men. The fact that he had fallen in love with a stranger devastated him to a point where he wrote this song about the girl.
The rapper is active on social media, and often posts pictures of his fans’ tattoos on his handles. He is strongly followed on YouTube, and posts cover songs and his original music videos on his channel.

Melo has kept details about his love life as hidden as possible – he’s been in at least one previous relationship, and is rumoured to have dated Isabella in the past. He revealed that he remained completely faithful and loyal to her on his YouTube channel, but has been secretive about other key details of their relationship, and as a result, the public knows very few details about them.
ANTH is currently single and doesn’t have children.
Fresia’s death came as a huge shock to Melo’s family. He posted a photo of her on his Facebook page, grieving, and captioned it ‘R.I.P. big sister. I miss you and love you very much.” Fresca left behind a son, Jeremiah and ANTH revealed during an interview that he is very close with him, considering him as his own son, and once revealed that he sees his sister everytime he looks into his eyes – he promises to provide for him and take care of him in the song “For Fresia,” which he sang together with Conor Maynard dedicating it to his sister.
