Soul Songstress Ledisi has been in the game for over 12 years, and is arguably one of the most talented vocalists out there at the moment. Honestly, we need more talent like her around. Fortunately her 5th studio album, 2011’s ‘Pieces Of Me‘ finally received the critical as well as commercial success that she deserved a long time ago. Debuting at # 9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, ‘Pieces Of Me‘ is her first album to make it to the top 10, eventually bagging 3 Grammy nominations at this year’s ceremony. In case you’ve browsed through zomgtalk’s top 50 albums of 2011, you’ll find ‘Pieces Of Me‘ on the list, cuz quite frankly she easily had one of the best R’n’B albums of the year.
And now Ledisi unveils a brand new video for what happens to be my fave Ledisi song EVER, the positively stunning and uplifting anthem ‘Bravo‘. Pitch-perfect soaring vocals (she’s got major lung power), some empowering lyrics, the strong synth and layered piano keys with a strong bass, ‘Bravo‘ is a hidden gem. And with the Erica D Hayes-directed video blurring all boundaries – social, religious or sexual – ‘Bravo‘ just got the treatment that it deserved! It’s officially one of my fave videos this year, and dare I say, of all time! I love a video with a message. And this is the kinda video that makes you smile and feel all goose-bumpy and euphoric when it’s over! FLAWLESS!
Give yourself a round of applause for this one Ledisi, you’ve outdone yourself! Bravo! Watch the video right here :
