Deluxe edition includes three bonus tracks. 2014 release from the Grammy-nominated songstress. The Truth is filled not only with Ledisi's trademark soaring ballads but also a generous collection of up-tempo, beat-driven celebrations of love and lust. "With every album I grow, and with The Truth I've gone to a new level. It's an extension of who I am and where I am in my life. Everything I am feeling and experiencing is in this album and I am excited to share it with my fans," states Ledisi. "Of all of my recordings, this is definitely my favorite album ever." Includes the first single 'I Blame You,' written and produced by Claude Kelly, Chuck Harmony and Ledisi Young (the team who brought you "Pieces of Me"). Other collaborations on the album include Jerry Wonda (Keyshia Cole, Mary J Blige, John Legend), Rex Rideout (Luther Vandross, Angie Stone, Kem), Jon Jon Trax (Beyonce, Bobby V), and DJ Camper (Chrisette Michelle, John Legend, Keyshia Cole).
Top Customer Reviews
The album opens with the gentle groove of 'I Blame You', already established as a firm favourite on the UK soul scene, managing to meld melody, dance floor compatibility and her powerfully emotive voice, which soars beautifully over the song's coda, with Jazz references found in the scatting end. The pace shifts up for 'Rock With You', clearly aimed at the clubs, replete with a very bright sounding electronically driven production. 'That Good Good' is largely percussive driven affair, with Ledisi in an assertive mode over a dipping bass line and handclaps. 'Lose Control' sees the pace drop, with her voice promising her intended beau a night of fulfillment, weaving over a steady slow rhythm with subtle vocoder shading as an accompaniment (with a possible H-Town melodic reference towards the end). Certainly an early stand out, and 'Like This' continues the mature friendly vein, with a greater degree of lyrical sophistication and a production which hints (through the piano) at late 1970s production, although Hip Hop is referenced through the lift from 'La Di Da Dee' (the B Side to Doug.Read more ›
On this upbeat R&B album, Ledisi showcases her incredible vocal range as she covers a wide range of topics related to love, also displaying a playful sexuality that never turns vulgar. The album opens with the very catchy "I Blame You" and the disco-esque "Rock With You." Then there is the mid-tempo "That Good Good" and the sultry "Lose Control," in which she sings about taking the lead in the bedroom: "Nice red high heel shoes, Left behind some clues, Follow the roses, Let me reward you."
Next are the mid-tempo song "Like This" and the radio-ready tune "Anything." Standout-track "The Truth" showcases her vulnerability, as this is a ballad about the feelings that the songstress went through after her own breakup, and the lively mid-tempo "Missy Doubt." On the mournful "88 Boxes" she sings about packing up pictures and old love letters, or in other words: "My life, it went from years to 88 boxes." Next is my personal favorite of this album, the ballad "Can't Help Who You Love."
The Deluxe Edition adds three tracks to this album: the mid-tempo "Mine," the R&B ballad "I Swear," which is my favorite of the extra songs, and the funky "Quick Fix" with sultry lyrics like "Baby, you better fix it, Come on, I'm gonna' quit this, I need a quick fix," rounding out the 13 tracks.Read more ›
