Ledisi is going for her second number-one single. The Grammy-nominated vocalist has announced that “Same Love” will be issued as the next radio single from her latest album, The Wild Card.
The soul-soaked recording, which invokes pained lyrics about a vacillating relationship, is expected to impact urban adult contemporary (urban AC) radio on January 26.
As Rated R&B previously reported, Ledisi scored her first major hit on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart last October with “Anything For You.” The devoted love song is nominated for best traditional R&B performance at the 2021 Grammys, which takes place on Sunday, March 14.
The Wild Card, the new album by Ledisi, was regarded as one of Rated R&B’s best R&B albums of 2020.
In other news, Ledisi has signed on to portray the Queen of Gospel Mahalia Jackson in the new biopic, Remember Me: The Mahalia Jackson Story.
“I am honored to be given a chance to paint the world through Mahalia’s eyes and sing her songs,” shared Ledisi in a statement. “I am sharing space with so many amazing actors and with Ericka Nicole Malone’s words and being under the direction of the Great Denise Dowse’s I am thrilled to be telling the story of New Orleans Gospel Legend Mahalia Jackson.”
