The “Empress of Soul” Gladys Knight is back with “a little” positivity to get you going in the right direction. Her new single “Just A Little” is a fun, up-tempo boost of energy produced by Grammy Award winning producer Symbolyc “S1” One (Kanye West, Beyonce, Jay-Z) for something very modern.
Knight proves she still has the vocal pipes as she reminds us that love, especially self-love, is the key: “It don’t matter who you are / Love can carry you away / Just keep shining you’re a star / Golden like a Summer day,” she sings. A video for the tune is coming soon.
Knight says it was time for her to release something different. “We just wanted to have fun. Most of the singles I’ve released prior to ‘Just A Little’ were ballads. I wanted something new. Something that we could dance to,” she said in a press release.
Cop “Just A Little” on Friday, September 25th, but meanwhile, you can preorder on iTunes above. The single is the first offering from Knight’s twelfth solo studio album to be released in 2016.
