I've been studying Ledisi for the past couple of weeks! It's refreshing hearing her story and hearing about her musical influences. I definitely hear all the styles and tones in her music.
Ledisi is an amazing singer! I'm so glad I came across her jazzy voice several years ago, and have kept up with her music to this date! She recently released a new single titled "High" and I absolutely love it! She's found the perfect mesh of Jazz, Soul, and R&B.
TLC recently released a song featuring Snoop Dogg titled "Way Back." The music video is cool, and gives you that cookout, family barbecue, kickback vibe! They make a good point about having their new music being played on Hip-Hop/R&B stations, instead of the "old school" stations. They're still making great music, and it deserves to be heard! Their new album is going to be released at the end of the month, on June 30th!
If you're a songwriter, you definitely should watch this interview! It was so inspiring and eye opening. I knew The Dream was a good songwriter, but I didn't know he wrote sooo many hits that I love today! Lately, I've been spending quite a bit of time studying lyrics, and just try and understand the songwriter's though process, rhyme patterns, etc. Hearing the process directly form the songwriter is very inspiring.
Lately I've been checking out vacation beach houses.... but someday I'll be living in one. I love the beach and this house is beautiful! #VisionBoard
Erykah Badu is a true original and completely embodies her uniqueness. I love watching her perform, because she sings so effortlessly. Her voice is etherial, yet soulful, where she doesn't really push or try. I've always enjoyed her music, and studying her metaphoric lyrics. Her songs really make me think, which is key for me. I remembered the first time I saw her at the Genius Talks at the BET Experience in LA two years ago, and seeing how down to earth and humble she was.
I love harmonies, and these girls do a phenomenal job harmonizing their voices. So talented!
My life is a song still being written...watch my lyrics evolve.
