Don’t let the title fool you: Ledisi’s new single “I Blame You” is pointing an incriminating finger at the one who’s stole her heart. Ledisi delivers once again with her powerhouse voice: “When they ask me why I’m smiling like a fool, I blame you,” she sings on the feel-good, steppin’ worthy track.
"It's about a relationship and you're excited about the person making you excited about you, again. So, you're blaming that person for bringing some light into your life. [The song] gives you insight to the honesty and the sensuality to what is to come," Ledisi told Essence magzine, hinting at a new project.
When asked if the song is inspired by a special someone in her life she said, “I have experienced someone radiating light into my world and making me feel good about me. It's also about feeling good about you first, then enhancing that… Someone is making me smile and it feels good!"
“I Blame You” follows her 2011 offering Pieces Of Me, and will be available digitally on Sept 30.
