New Music Premiere: Melody Thornton – ‘Lipstick&Guilt’

Lipstick&Guilt

Melody Thornton is breaking out of the doll house. After topping the charts and touring the world with the Pussycat Dolls, the soulful songstress is embarking on her solo career with her first mixtape P.O.Y.B.L. Every Monday and Thursday over the next month, she will be rolling out new music and videos for her fans, with the free mixtape release on March 15.

“After the Dolls, I let everything go and took some much needed time to put myself back together,” said Melody. “We worked liked machines and there was little time for maintenance, so I’ve spent the past two years just writing, relaxing, and discovering my musical self without limitations. My amazing fans and supporters have been patiently waiting to hear the REAL Melody Thornton and this is my thank you. I’ve written so many songs and P.O.Y.B.L is the first project of many. I can only hope people love it as much as I do.”

Melody shows off her vocal chops and exposes the dark side of the music industry on the mixtape’s first offering “Lipstick&Guilt,” a remix of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild.”

    @Popcritic, The hell she can. Nicole is a classically trained opera singer with a five octave vocal range…she just ruins herself by choosing to sing pop music. Melody is talented, but she’s no Nicole.

    @Triniti, Nicole is no Nicole, she can have as many octaves as she likes…nobody will ever buy her album, though.

    @Big.Deal, YOU CRAZY?? Nicole’s album has already been released in the UK, selling over 200,000 copies, peaking at #8. The second single, Don’t Hold Your Breath went #1. Poison & Right There went to #3, while Wet peaked at #21 and Try With Me at #18. That’success my friend :D

    I love what the song is talking about, not all that about the song itself though as far as vocals & production. But I love the direction she’s head. Can’t wait for the mixtape to release :D

    That’s my nigga; I remember hearing this beat when I was downloading several instrumentals at the end of 2011. Because I don’t listen to male musicians; just a hand full & I’ll be damned if I listen to a turtle looking dude or a college drop out. Then she drops those power house vocals on the track & I downloaded it instantly, thanks Melody Thornton… <3 Long live Jessica Sutta, Tiffanie Anderson & the Paradiso Girls too…

    I don’t know if I 100% agree with the key of the song. But I LOVE Melody! Her voice is so powerful. I hope she has more radio friendly tracks on the mix tape to gain her some more exposure. I loved Love Gun and Sweet Vendetta so I am POSITIVE she has some great songs coming!

    I always thought Melody was the kind of singer that felt the need to always make it known that she can do a lot with her voice, like Jessie J does now, but this was mad dope! Lyrics, melody, delivery. I give her props.

    She shits on Nicole vocally. PCD played her down, but they always used her when they wanted to slay vocally. Can’t wait to see her take over the charts!
