With Flopzinger and Kimberlegend carving out solo careers for themselves, it was easy to completely forget all about PCD’s premiere vocalist, Melody Thornton. She’s been laying low for a little while, but now Mel is back and giving the world the first official taste of her upcoming solo album with the Cee-Lo Green produced track “Love Gun”.
After keeping her voice under wraps for so long, Melody’s powerful and almost shrill pipes are out in full force on the western-flavored, 60s pop song. The vocal delivery is a little left of center and not something you’d ever hear from the Dolls, as is the production, which carries Cee-Lo’s unique style. It’s kind of like Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang” brought into the 21st century, but then given a quirky urban-pop makeover. Yup, it’s amazing.
Flopzinger, who? Kimberlegend, huh?
“Love Gun” was actually originally recorded for PCD’s sophomore album Doll Domination, and was then later passed on to the Paradiso Girls’ Lauren Bennett, until finally finding it’s rightful home with Melody.
To accompany the track, Melody has also done a sexy new Wild West themed photo shoot, which you can check out in full over at Toyaz-World.
