Melody Thornton is ready to step into her own spotlight. The former Pussycat Doll member recently released her first solo mixtape project “P.O.Y.B.L.” (Piss On Your Black List) If the title’s not enough to raise a few eyebrows and spark a little attention, the music will definitely wake a few people up. The 10-track offering provides a good mix of what I fondly refer to as crazy girl/sweet girl music. (Think Melanie Fiona or Jazmine Sullivan content-wise.) It’s the perfect way for her to assert her independence as an artist, and as a woman. Intrigued? Stream & download below:

Stand-out tracks include the leading single “Lipstick & Guilt” which makes good use of Jay-Z & Kanye West‘s “No Church In The Wild” beat, and “Loving You Better”, her spin on The Rolling Stones‘ classic “Wild Horses”.
