[FIRST LISTEN] Melody Thornton "Sweet Vendetta

SweetVendetta-400

After leaving The Pussycat Dolls, Melody Thornton wasn't quite ready to move on from her singing career as well. The talented Phoenix, AZ singer and dancer was only getting started and being in a chart-topping girl group that was a true global sensation at one time sure was a great learning experience for her.

Thornton takes all that she has learned and experienced to launch a solo career with a sound that is quite different than what we've heard from her before. Her new single "Sweet Vendetta" is not the fun and flirty pop we've have come to expect from her. Instead, the singer nurtured a sound that is inspired by classic Motown and other fine R&B and soul.

Take a listen to "Sweet Vendetta" to get a taste for her new retro-styled pop sound. The song may not be that easy to break into the charts with, but it does help her to carve out a unique niche that she can own solo. Produced by Church & State.
