Remember Melody Thornton? If you don’t, she was the one that really didn’t get much air time in the Pussycat Dolls although she actually had the best voice. She’s been quiet for a while but now she’s back to pursue her solo career. To mark the occasion she is releasing her first mixtape P.O.Y.B.L. and every Monday and Thursday over the next month she will be dropping music and videos in anticipation of the free offering due out on March 15, 2012.
This first taster is her take on Jay and Ye’s Frank Ocean produced “No Church In The World” where she shows off her super powerful chops, proclaiming: “the industry done ate you up alive / and theres no church in the wild”.
Of her solo embarkment, she said: ““After the Dolls, I let everything go and took some much needed time to put myself back together”
“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.” Check out the track below and let us know what you think of the new sounding Melody Thornton.[via Rap-Up]
