Don’t let the title fool you: Ledisi’s new single “I Blame You” is pointing an incriminating finger at the one who 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.
On the concept of the record, Ledisi told Singersroom: "Someone was making me feel more beautiful, and it showed."
She adds: "It's not only about loving you, but someone else is loving who I am becoming, and they’re making me feel this way. It was just the LOVE, and that's how we came up with the title, and that's how we were going to do it. Claude Kelly actually came up with that title."
The Derek Blanks-directed visuals shows Ledisi transforming from a normal lady to a fully confident and glowing woman.
Ledisi's forthcoming album, The Truth, is slated to arrive February 2014.
