Ledisi premiered a peaceful and serene music video for the title track of her solo debut “Pieces of Me” today (June 13).
“Pieces of Me” is Ledisi's fifth studio album, which is summed up nicely by USA Today, who gives a break down of several of the album's tracks in an order that makes the album complete with good meaning.
“She opens with the soul-baring title track, on which she takes stock of the many aspects of her character. It sets her off on a journey of self-discovery that gives her confidence in both love and life. Her resonant vocals brim with emotion as she sings about finding (I Gotta Get to You), sustaining (Stay Together) and ending (I Miss You Now) relationships. She also touches on treating yourself well (BGTY), staying positive (Shut Up) and staying focused on your goals (Raise Up). The wistful Coffee describes a good man, while the swaggering Hate Me finds her playfully chiding a man who is after her.”
Ledisi co-wrote most of the tracks, and with help from John Legend, Claude Kelly and Rex Rideout, Pieces celebrates all that makes her special.
