Powerhouse vocalist, Melody Thornton is finding her way back to the spotlight, but on her own terms. After dropping traces of what will form her upcoming mixtape, which up until this point has been cryptically titled, P.O.Y.B.L, an ancroynm for “Piss On Your Black List”…. she is now ready to bare all.
“Piss On Your Black List has nothing to do with being a rebel or fighting against anything. It has everything to do with fighting for myself,” says Thornton. “It’s clever with attitude. It’s kind of funny and gets a strong reaction; all things that, at times, describe my art.”
The mixtape consists of 10 tracks which do just that. Through various melodic stories of love, music, and faith, Melody exposes the battles she faces with each, and at times, she even reveals the battle within herself.
In addition to the single “Sweet Vendetta” and remake of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild” (“Lipstick&Guilt“), the 10 tracks include five remakes and four original tracks all written by Melody.
