First Impressions: Pieces Of Ledisi

Friday, April 1, 2011

If you caught me in 2009, I was constantly spinning Ledisi's Turn Me Loose. And oh, looky here, it was was my #1 pick for album of the year back then as well. *smirk* Whenever I had a bad day or just wanted to dance around my kitchen while prepping dinner, I was spinning Turn Me Loose. Ledisi just really put her foot in that album, in my opinion. So I'm quite ready to get another Ledisi album to consume me and brand new track, "Pieces Of Me" is that first shred of evidence that Ledisi may be offering some more head bopping testimonies on her upcoming new album.

Produced by long-time collaborator Chuck Harmony, "Pieces Of Me" is a mid-tempo ballad, that pretty much is Ledisi to the core, from femme fatale lyrics to a power punch of  vocal gymnastics--it's truly for the Led Heads out there. I sort of have a nose scrunch about ballads being released for first impression sake, but in this case, while it's not the strongest Led ballad, it's still an enjoyable one. 

She premiered the song on her Facebook earlier this morning for a special listening party. Since I don't have Facebook (not getting into why) I was "excluded" from that party, but be like me can arrive fashionably late to the release, by taking a spin below. Also keep a look out for April 5th when it officially drops and is ready for purchase on iTunes.
