Ledisi Shares New Single ‘Add To Me’

After announcing details on her ninth album, Let Love Rule, Ledisi shares her new single “Add To Me.”

On the mid-tempo song, the R&B songbird asks her love interest what will he bring to the table in their relationship — and she’s not talking about materialistic things.

She sings, “I need some relation / Good conversation / Gimme stimulation / What’s your motivation? / How you gon’ add to me?”

Ledisi explained the concept behind the song in an interview with Essence.

““I was thinking about relationships,” she said. “To men, women should act like, ‘We’re independent and self-sufficient. We’re going to make it happen with or without you. So, If you’re going to be here, add to my situation. I know I’m going to add to yours.’”

She adds, “Anyone that you are with the question should be how are they going to add to you? Most women want a great man that enhances who we are.”

Let Love Rule will release on September 22 via Verve Records. It feature the lead single “High,” which has peaked at No. 13 on urban adult contemporary radio.

Nearly three years since his Game Changer release, the “My, My, My” singer has seen urban AC radio success for four singles including its lead “Behind Closed Doors,” and his Jaheim-assisted single, “5000 Miles.”
