My Cousin Charan has been singing this young Lady’s praises for the Longest. I can’t count the number of times that I have heard her mention something about attending one of Ledisi’s her performances.
Ledisi Performing Samsung NYC
So when I received the invite to attend a recent show for her upcoming album, I jumped at the chance and I wasn’t the least bit disappointed. The show which was held at the Samsung Experience in the Time Warner Center, for the private listening party.
She blew us away literally, With Guest such as Black Thought of the Roots, and BET President Stephen Hill amongst others, It was a great evening of music. Although I have to admit I really wasn’t that familiar with her music, that voice can not be denied .
And the live performance she gave, she sang (yes SANG) until she poured with sweat. My favorite song besides the title cut “Pieces Of Me”. It is definitely a celebration of being a woman and all the complication that entails. Another song that made a real impression on me was, the song she introduced as her “pimp,” was called “Hate that you Love me”…
It was an empowering song about a woman who is in a relationship with a man, who can’t seem to get her out of his mind, no matter how he tries, but she is her first true love, and honey I can relate to having that struggle….lmao… She might as well called my name.
But don’t take my word for it click here to hear some music. Check out her page for more info on the new album.
