R&B/Soul sweetheart Ledisi held an intimate listening experience for her forthcoming album, The Truth, at Jungle City Studios yesterday (Dec. 10) in New York City. During the session, the “Pieces of Me” hitmaker spoke excitedly about the project as well as her growth as an individual and artist.
With a message of self-love and leaving the old behind, Ledisi’s new LP will surely expand her fan base. From what I’ve heard, the records are more intimately revealing, and musically diverse (collection of ballads and up-tempo tracks). Standout songs include the sensual bedroom romper “Lose Control” and my favorite, “Like This,” a self-empowering ballad about love wants.
The Truth, led by the first single “I Blame You,” will arrive February 11, 2014, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
“With every album I grow, and with ‘The Truth’ I’ve gone to a new level,” states Ledisi. “It’s an extension of who I am and where I am in my life. Everything I am feeling and experiencing is in this album and I am excited to share it with my fans.
Ledisi calls the project her “favorite album ever” and if I must chime in, it may be yours as well.
