R&B Sunday: Ledisi – “Take Time”

Ledisi-art

As we mentioned on the last episode of The FROCAST, there was some controversy about Beyonce singing at the Grammys instead of Ledisi. Social media exploded with opinions and conjecture varying from Beyonce is right to “who is Ledisi?”. That last one, that’s baffling to me. If you’re a music fan, that last question seems to be impossible to ask seriously.

Instead of belittling folks who don’t know, I figured I’d try and be part of the solution, again. I reviewed her last project Pieces of Me as well, stop sleepin’. This rendition of “Take Time” is one of my absolute favorites by Ledisi. It showcases her skills as well as her personality in one 8 minute shot. I have every studio album and she’s definitely an instant purchase artist. If you told me Ledisi had a song with Iggy I’d buy it. If you told me Ledisi had a song with Bjork, I’d buy it. If you told me Ledisi had a song with Silkk Da Shocker on the hook…..I’d be hesitant, but I’d still buy it. Anyway, if this is your first look at who Ledisi is, you’re welcome.
