‘Tell Me You Love’ This New Leela James Song


The big-voiced, big-haired, sassy spitfire that is Leela James is back this year with a new album on a new label. Yes, you may be experiencing a bit of deja vu since last year around this time we got similar news when she returned to the scene with Let's Do It Again on Shanachie Records. Although a solid album, the material didn't live up to Leela's incredible potential, which hopefully won't be the case on her upcoming June release, My Soul, her debut on legendary Stax Records, home to fellow belters N'dambi and Angie Stone. The lead single is the laidback groove "Tell Me You Love Me." Thanks to a clever sample of The Manhattans' "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye," this song has a throwback vibe without sounding too worn, like her last album of covers tended to sound. Once the weather gets some Act Right, this'll be good riding-in-the-whip music.

  7. Great soud this song is going to eat this summer up with joy and love. I will love to see her in concert.

  8. Don't sell "Let's Do It Again" short. I owe it to her and that record for introducing me to the Womack & Womack song "Baby I'm Scared of you." Leela gave that a really strong performance.
    I actually like that CD because it's all real- no pretense.

  9. THIS WOMAN ...THIS MUSIC... THESE WORDS...A PERFECT MELD. I WILL WATCH HER SOAR HIGHER AND HIGHER BECAUSE HER TIME IS NOW..
    BE BLESSED LITTLE GIRL.
