Melody Thornton Reveals ‘P.O.Y.B.L’ Cover Art, Tracklisting


Melody Thornton spreads her wings and flies solo on her mixtape P.O.Y.B.L, an acronym for Piss On Your Black List. The former Pussycat Doll exposes her battles in love, music, and faith on the “soul-pop” offering, which incorporates instrumentals from the ’60s and ’70s.

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 consist of five remakes and four originals all written by Melody.

The project includes production from Andre Harris (“Smoking Gun”), Church and State (“Sweet Vendetta”), Mark Vinten (“Intro”), and Melody on the self-produced “Hit the Ground Runnin’,” plus a duet with Bobby Newberry (“Bulletproof”).

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,” explained Melody. “It’s clever with attitude. It’s kind of funny and gets a strong reaction; all things that, at times, describe my art.”

P.O.Y.B.L will be available for free download on March 15.

    I seriously love that cover and the meaning behind the album title, LOL! I love Melody and I can’t wait to hear what she is cooking up on this mixtape. I feel like mixtapes are the new way to present your music and kind of get your name out there. Melody, Dawn, Kalenna, Teyana Taylor, and more have/will be releasing mixtapes this year. I’m not complaining…
