Ledisi on Her New Found Sexiness: ” I Wanted to Celebrate That Part of Me”

On her latest studio album, The Truth, Ledisi is in no shape or form trying to sell sex, but the Grammy nominated singer is finally at a place where she is feeling confident physically and emotionally, and it’s being reflected in her music and life.

"I was two songs away from being done with The Truth when I decided I have to make a lifestyle change, physically. I got a nutritionist. I don’t like the treadmill so I did [an aerobics class called] Hip Hop and Heels," she told Essence.

The progression of her fashion sensibilities was solely decided by Ledisi — her record label never attempted to push her in a sexy direction. “It had nothing to do with a label, or music. I wanted to celebrate that part of me. I want to be seen as well as heard. I’ve been doing sexy songs – Lost & Found."

With the release of the new project, Ledisi will hit the road for two and a half months on the 'The Truth' tour. The trek will kick off on April 16th in Jackson, Florida.
