Ledisi, "Pieces of Me"

Grammy Award-nominated soul singer Ledisi continues serenading listeners with her smooth voice on her latest single. "Pieces of Me," the title track of her upcoming album, exhibits the singer's propensity for displaying her powerful pipes while also highlighting her jazz roots. Ledisi offers abstract pieces of her own life to the listener as she fervidly sings, "So when you look at my face/ You gotta know that I'm made/Of everything love and pain/ These are the pieces of me." Musically, "Pieces of Me" offers a certain simplicity-unfussy piano and slow but effective drums-that makes Ledisi's blues-inspired tone all the more alluring. Her heartfelt lyrics and keen vocals create a passionate ballad, and if this single is any indication, Ledisi is sure to have another praiseworthy album.
