Multiply Mode Not working to Recolour Line Work

I’m pretty sure the method I’m using is fairly common but I’ve searched like 50 different ways of asking this question and no one seems to have ever had the same issue.

I have a b&w image that I’m trying to colour in PS. The common way to go is to set the layer to multiply and start colouring away. It’s always worked until today when of course I have to colour like 50 images in like 2 days for work. No one here knows what the hell is going on and I’m stuck desperately picking through the web with all the answers being for some other super specific issue that has nothing to do with what I’m looking for.

Has anyone had this issue???

It’s hard to tell from the image, but it looks like you’re coloring on the layer on top of the b & w artwork. I’d put the put the line art above (set to multiply) then color on the layer below.
