A Mid-Summer's Evening Listening Session with Ledisi
Last week in an intimate setting in New York City, Multi-Grammy nominated vocalist Ledisi performed her new single “High” and other songs from her upcoming new album “Let Love Rule.” She was interviewed by InStyle Fashion Editor at large, Kahlana Barfield Brown. They had a wonderful dialogueabout her inspiration behind this new album. Ledisi described her process like flowing water, when she heard the beats she just kept writing. She even referenced that she listened to Bob Marley for two years and made her first trip to Jamaica. It was the energy from that trip that she transferred to her album. Ledisi’s voice is magical and her lyrics mesmerizing and relatable, it was an unforgettable night for fans, media and industry influencers.
Ledisi is gearing up for the release of her ninth album, Let Love Rule. She has released two singles from the album. Just recently her second single “Add To Me” was premiered via essence.com (CLICK HERE). Ledisi challenges the fellas to step up their game.
“I was thinking about relationships,” Ledisi states. “To men, women should act like, ‘We’re independent and self-sufficient. We’re going to make it happen with or without you. So, If you’re going to be here, add to my situation. I know I’m going to add to yours.’" She adds, "Anyone that you are with the question should be how are they going to add to you? Most women want a great man that enhances who we are.”
The highly-anticipated project boasts a total of 15 new tracks, with guest appearances from a handful of other notable Soul and Gospel music favorites including John Legend, BJ The Chicago Kid and Kirk Franklin, according to essence.com. Let Love Rule drops September 22.
