Get Lifted As Ledisi Pushes For A Stress-Free Life On "High" [Premiere]
We here @Okayplayer absolutely love Ledisi. It’s no secret that we’ve been following her career since she released her first album in 2000. The nine-time Grammy-nominated R&B, soul singer continues to wow us with her new song, “High,” which is the first effort from her forthcoming album.
“It feels so good to be back again,” Ledisi starts off crooning over some strong horns + keys. It is a slow build groove before you get to the hook, where she expresses how she’s over all the hard times. “High” is a good song for those who love coasting in their whip, walking the Highline in New York City or just embodying a stress-free existence.
“High” is a mere example of why she makes up the short list of generationally-appreciated soul singers and has fans such as Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Zendaya and the late, great Prince. With only a few weeks before she hits the road to go on tour with Maxwell, this is only the beginning of a dope roll out from this excellent performer.
