( ENSPIRE Entertainment ) Ledisi Performs Songs From her Upcoming Album “Let Love Rule”
Multi-Grammy nominated Powerhouse vocalist Ledisi, is set to drop her ninth album Let Love Rule, September 22. Her new single “High” is currently #15 on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart and has surpassed over 1 million streams on Spotify. On top of that success, Ledisi released her second single “Add To Me,” which premiered via Essence.com
“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.”
Last week we had the opportunity to listen and watch her perform some songs from her new album, Let Love Rule, at a summer listening event. Kahlana Barfield Brown, Fashion and Beauty Editor-at-large at Instyle Magazine, held a brief Q&A with the sultry singer. It gave the audience insight into her creative process behind this album. She described her writing the songs like water, it was just a continuous flow when she heard the beats. Her music is her venting and speaks on certain issues. She also talked about listening to Bob Marley for two years and the influence of her going to Jamaica for the first time. Ledisi said she applied that energy she felt being there to her album.
From listening to her songs and knowing what is her motivation behind her artistry literally gives you goosebumps (I know I felt it). Definitely was a night to remember, as her beautiful voice and relevant material will give fans exactly what they are expecting and more.
