New Music: Melody Thornton – ‘Love Gun’

Melody Thornton

Former Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton has her eye on the prize with the release of her sassy breakout record “Love Gun,” written and produced by Cee Lo Green. The slinky, Western-tinged tune puts her vocals front and center as gunshots pop beneath her bold vocals, wailing, “Oh you got me, baby! Baby, baby, are you ready for the show now?” Sounds like she’s ready to show the world what she’s made of.

Rap-Up.com has your first listen to Mel’s bangin’ new joint below.

    honestly, this would have been a monster had cee-lo actually sang it. i like that it’s different but she doesn’t have enough of a voice to really handle it. pretty decent first effort, though.

    I LOVE it… very different to whats on radio now. She did a bang up job w* this one. And her vocals go perfect with it.

    This is a good first effort for Melody. I don’t think it would do well as a single but definitely something worthy for an album. I love the western feel to it; it’s really different. GO MELODY!!!

    I LOVE the sound – it’s giving me an Amy Whinehouse feel. It’s HOT n i wouldve never expected this from her, its far from typical. Not sure how radio friendly it is, but its amazing

    This song is from Date Night but its sang by Lauren Bennett from Paradiso Girls and Cee-Lo does sing in it.

    I hate to admit this, but I think this would’ve been better sung by Nicole, AND I LOVE MELODY WAY MORE!!!

    why do people dig this girl? She’s a back-up singer that’s it. Her voice is nowhere near strong enough and lacks power to be a mainstream singer. Don’t get me wrong she’s pretty and she has some swagger but she sounds strained all the time.

    Sounds like a western version of
    I Feel Good by James Brown

    Thank you rap-up for this!

    [Reply]

  28. lol umm..

    Umm… her voice is kind of annoying like Yummi’s voice (think that was her name)… Maybe if it wasn’t so pitchy? I like the song itself, just not her singing on it. She sounds okay on the bridge when her voice is deeper.

  29. rob

    sadly i agree nicole would eat this up, that raspyness in her voice is what was needed for this track . Melody hasnt quite found her voice but she can definetly sing

  35. Kevin

    I was excited for this! But it’s underwhelming. I really don’t care if I ever hear this song again. Really digg Melody though. Hope she hits me with something hot someday. c;

  37. jay

    love mel ,the music its good ,but she still doesn`t find her voice ,her voice gets lost in that big combo music

    [Reply]

  38. LaYer

    To be honest I LOVE IT! :)
    It’s “fresh” today cuz everyone is hooked on electro/house/dance and it’s really great that she’s getting it back to old school sound… more enjoyable and fun than songs like Only Girl and Guettas minions :P

    Go Melody! :)

    cee-lo should have given this song to duffy or jazmine sullivan or something.

  42. Jaye

    melanie fiona would have tore this song apart! but melody did okay…

    [Reply]

  43. andrew

    Gotta agree with these two^ Melanie Fiona, Duffy or Jazmine would have murrrdered this track.

  44. Raven

    I like the original song with Cee lo and Lauren Bennett from Paradiso Girls…sound MUCH better. Plus, she has better range in her voice.

    I don’t really like her voice, but the song is okay.

  50. Ajah

    cee lo is AMAZING(hes sooo talented)… but i dont think i like this song with melody’s voice, i dont even know if i like melody’s voice period its like shes screaming the whole time i couldnt even understand what she was singing. Like i could deal with her random parts in PCD songs but thats probably about it

    [Reply]

  51. C

    OMG! She butchered this song! It sounds like someone is stepping on a cat. The original verson was actually sung by Cee lo and Lauren Bennett and was in the movie “Date Night”. I have been patiently waiting for Cee lo to release Lady Killers because Lauren Bennett stated they had recorded the song for that LP. I’m sooooo disappointed!

    Finally the true talent steps out…
    I wanna hear her do another song like “Space” tho but I love that she’s trying to take the path less traveled. Dope

    [...] Thornton shook up the Internet a couple months back with her country-fried “Love Gun,” but the song’s release may have jumped the gun. Cee Lo Green includes the track on his third solo [...]
