Album Review: Ledisi – ‘The Truth’
Posted on June 6, 2014
Ledisi’s The Truth is the album that you never thought you’d want to buy but really should. Just one look at the cover, and you can tell something has changed. While she’s got a new look and attitude, her trademark thankfully voice remains the same.
This body of work truly comes as a shock. You could relate it to Tamar Braxton’s Love and War album, labeling is The Truth as it’s more mature auntie. Or you could say this is what Chrisette Michele might grow into in about 10 years. It’s a fusion of soul, modern pop, and thumping basslines that truly has no comparison on the market. It’s a throwback to the heyday of neo-soul when artists like Musiq Soulchild and Angie Stone could make popular tunes with depth that reaches a diverse audience.
