The fall season is shaping up to be a great one for R&B music, and Ledisi is adding herself to the mix with her new album Let Love Rule.
“This album was one of the hardest I’ve ever worked on,” the 45-year old vocalist said in an interview with Billboard. “We were looking for songs that could stand the test of time. This wasn’t a quickie; it was about great songwriting. I’ve come back to what I love about R&B and also what I love about today’s music.”
She is 4/4 with the music she’s already released ahead of the album: The jazzy (and potential single) “Add to Me,” the soulful “Here,” the vocal-tastic duet with BJ the Chicago Kid “Us 4Ever,” and the trap adjacent lead single “High.”
This is Ledisi’s ninth studio album, and features John Legend, healing guru Iyanla Vanzant, and journalist Soledad O’Brien. “High” reached the Top 10 of the Urban AC chart earlier this month, and currently sits at No. 9.
