Melody Thornton burns up the screen as a tortured Mob wife in the sinful video for “Smoking Gun,” a cut off her mixtape P.O.Y.B.L. The former Pussycat Doll ties up her man as she smokes a cigarette and packs her suitcase.

“‘Smoking Gun’ is one of the four original songs on my mixtape P.O.Y.B.L,” said the 27-year-old singer. “It’s always fun to play dress up and for this video I took inspiration from the tortured Mob Wives in the notorious movie GoodFellas. Working with talent like Hyperballad and George Su was such a pleasure and I look forward to making more magic in the near future.”

Dano Cerny and Marielle Tepper of directing duo Hyperballad added, “We were moved by the bittersweet undertones of the track and collaborated with cinematographer George Su to capture a nostalgic style influenced by classic pulp films.”

New Music: Melody Thornton – ‘P.O.Y.B.L’ [Mixtape]

P.O.Y.B.L

After keeping her fans patiently waiting, Melody Thornton embarks on her solo career with the release of her debut mixtape P.O.Y.B.L (Piss On Your Black List). The former Pussycat Doll reveals her battles in love, music, and faith on the free release, 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 “soul-pop” offering 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 on the La Roux cover “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,” said Melody. “It’s clever with attitude. It’s kind of funny and gets a strong reaction; all things that, at times, describe my art.”

Melody Thornton

Melody Thornton goes dark in the video for “Lipstick&Guilt,” her remake of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild.” The former Pussycat Doll weathers the evils of the industry in the ominous clip, directed by Hyperballad. Melody, who did her own hair, makeup, and styling, looks glamorous in a flowing purple gown as she belts out the soulful song perched on a rock.

“We were influenced by the dark undertones of the track and Melody’s powerhouse vocals,” said directors Dano Cerny and Marielle Tepper. “We worked with our effects team Nick Young and Zack Young to create a world that matched the mood and beauty but wasn’t your typical video imagery. The great thing about working with Melody is that she thinks out of the box and wants to push the envelope visually, which makes for a great collaboration.”

Melody’s 10-track mixtape P.O.Y.B.L (Piss On Your Black List) will be available for free download on March 15.
