In only eight weeks, Ledisi’s lead single “Pieces of Me” has become her first top 10 hit on Billboard’s Adult R&B chart, sitting at No. 7 this week. The single was produced by Chuck Harmony and Claude Kelly, who also co-wrote the song.
“People are starting to know what I’m capable of doing but they still don’t know who I am,” Ledisi says. “‘Pieces of Me’ is more personal; I’m not hiding in the music. I’m growing more confident and stronger in my own lane. I’m just going for it.”
“She’s on her way to the mainstream,” Harmony says of the single. “It’s a radio-friendly record with a sing-along kind of melody that works with her powerful, clear voice.”
Ledisi’s fifth solo album “Pieces of Me,” will be released tomorrow June 14th. Her song “So Into You” will be featured as iTunes’ free Discovery Download for one week beginning June 21. A free iPad and iPhone app will become available June 14, complete with two games-one that ties into the album cover’s puzzle motif while the other will let fans “Led head” themselves by placing the singer’s braided hairdo on images of themselves.
The music video for the title single “Pieces of Me” also premiered today (June 13).
