Following the first leak from ex Pussy Cat Dolls member Melody Thornton‘s debut solo effort in the form of her take of Jay and Ye’s “No Church In The Wild” entitled “Lipstick & Guilt” – the singer has now unveiled the cover art and track listing for her forthcoming release P.O.Y.B.L..
The 10 track mix tape features production from Andre Harris on the track “Smoking Gun”, Church and State on “Sweet Vendetta” and Melody takes care of duties on “Hit the Ground Runnin”. Speaking of P.O.Y.B.L. which is an acronym for Piss On Your Black List, which is described as “soul-pop” which incorporates instrumentals from the 60s and 70s, Melody says:
“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”
“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 – check the track listing below.

Here at Poetic Phases, the mission is too expose the youth and adults to the true essence and beauty of what poetry,music,art, and fashion have to offer. The goal is to infect the minds of individuals with awesome creativity strategies and skills, so that they may be able to build up their own foundation to express themselves through the sound of music, though the mouth of words, and through paintings. Poetic Phases does interviews on upcoming artists, exposes and promotes paintings and any type of artwork from upcoming painters and art designers, music (all types) from upcoming artists and musicians, and of course promotes philosophical and poetic elements that come from the hands and mouths of those that have something to share or say. Poetic Phases is all about teaching people how to be themselves by having creativity, and the motivation and drive to reach their life goals, dreams, and ambitions. WE ARE POETIC PHASES!!
