“Thought you was here from the start give me a reason, why did you tell me you love me, you didn’t mean it…”
– quote from “Melodies”

“Melodies” is a reminiscence of the story of a young hustler’s life and how he lives his life. He has had to work doubly hard to make and to proving himself in a where he is doubted. He does not blame the doubters and those who tried to make life hard for him instead he blames his father. All of the difficulties he had to endure made him stronger and more relentless in his pursuit of success.

He commends loyal friends who have been supportive and loving through challenging times. He mentions how proud he knows his mother would be of him and that he loves her.
Shy Billz resonates these words passionately in his clear melodious voice making it known that he is not a quitter. Despite all that has been tossed at him, the doubts, hatred, difficulties, disloyalty and fake love, he is still able to sing melodies. This is the message that he wants to get across in this track.
