It’s always a special moment when the amazing Ledisi announces the release of an upcoming album. As one of the best vocalists and performers we have in r&b right now, she’s really separated herself among the elite over the past decade.

For that reason, we were excited to attend a press event she held last week in NYC to give a preview of the upcoming album “Let Love Rule”.

The evening began with a Q&A session where we got to hear from Ledisi how Bob Marley influenced the vibe of this album, and how she wasn’t quite ready to record when she initially went into the studio. She talked about how producers Rex Rideout and DJ Camper pushed her in the right direction, and how excited she is to share this project with the world.

She then took the stage to perform some of the new music live. Included in the set was current single “High”, as well as her recently released song “Add to Me”.

She performed a couple of other new songs, before stepping into the audience and gleefully greeting all attendees in the room. “Let Love Rule” is set to release on September 22nd, 2017. Check out some photos from her performance below.
