With five albums under her belt, Ledisi returns with her new project, ‘Pieces of Me,’ currently in stores now. You mentioned Claude Kelly, who has become the go-to songwriter for a lot of pop acts like Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson. I wrote the title track for the new album with Claude and Harmony. On this CD I was not really focused on genres of music. I feel more confident more than ever because I finally know who I am and I what I do. There was the question of, “Why do you want to record a jazz album? Everyone was against me, but as soon as I got that California Music Award in my heart I felt really good. What did the success of that album mean for you going forward? I was exhausted and singing about being unnoticed and unheard. The effort is a heartfelt work she calls her most R&B-centered release to date. I worked with Claude Kelly, Ivan and Carvin, Kay Gee, Frank City. That was my thought process — please don’t let me become unnoticed. Though Q-Tip hinted in 2013 that those were the last performances we would ever see from Tribe together as a group, there was a subtle sense of optimism. And with De LA Soul’s crowdsourcing campaign receiving a significant amount of support, the demand for fresh tunes from the originators of alternative hip-hop was reaching its fever pitch. Reid revealed what I had desperately hoped for: A final ATCQ album was in the works.Surely, Phife and Q-Tip couldn't possibly be at odds with each other forever, right? Finally, we would bear witness to new music from the legendary rap group. Thus, with Q-Tip’s confirmation coming just days ago, and a release date less than two weeks away, the pioneering hip-hop savants are finally back to give us what we’ve been waiting so long for. Though we’ve been told this before, there will never be another Tribe album.Since the collective disbanded over personal and creative differences, as well as record label frustrations, I have desperately hoped, prayed, and wished for the influential rap group to reunite and create their signature sound once again.However, with each member pursuing their personal musical ventures — Q-Tip launched a solo career that produced three successful projects, Phife Dawg maintained a relatively low profile after releasing , while Ali Shaheed linked up with Raphael Saadiq and Dawn Robinson to form the short-lived supergroup Lucy Pearl — and the growing tension between Phife Dawg and Q-Tip, the likelihood of a reunion seemed hopeless. Michael Rapaport's documentary While the group reunited in 2004 for various performances at festivals and concerts, they were still regurgitating the same, old — albeit exquisite — material.Maybe that’s the reason why the New Orleans native has always been a tough artist for the marketplace to nail down. I didn’t know people were associating me with the artists that you named. But before that, I used to break dance and all that stuff. I have the potential of doing whatever I want to do, if I decide to do it.

But the spirit of the music was more about the grind of being a soul singer. Everybody was against me, including the people who were creating the album with me. But what it did was open the ears to the hip-hop community as well. She can be in this genre.” But I didn’t grow up that way. I like Willie Nelson and Patsy Cline and the Beach Boys. Could you see yourself singing on rap tracks like Badu and Chrisette Michele did for Rick Ross on ‘Aston Martin Music’? I’ve already gotten a few calls from some hip-hop artists. Will we see you out on any touring dates in support of ‘Pieces of Me’? But I do know in the fall I will definitely have a tour. Ledisi proved so when she was nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist in support of her breakthrough 2007 album ‘Lost & Found,’ a project that not only garnered critical acclaim, but also received consistent radio airplay. There’s a lot of other great people and wonderful things on the new album. They weren’t against the music, they just didn’t know what I was doing. A lot of your mainstream success came from the Grammy-nominated album ‘Lost & Found.’ This is when fans really started picking up on you and the urban radio stations got behind that project. Maybe you were at the Bad Boy Family Reunion show at the American Airlines Center, when she showed up unannounced and took over the stage near the end.Or maybe you happened to be at Dealey Plaza the day she filmed her video for “Window Seat,” slowly disrobing until she stood where JFK had been shot, naked, in and out in one take, here and gone so quickly you could hardly believe what you’d just seen. Shouldn’t you want to be on the rooftop patio of a local restaurant for a 40th birthday party, and then suddenly Erykah Badu is there? The party was for a guy I barely know, a man of means who also brought in A Tribe Called Quest’s charismatic leader, Q-Tip, for a DJ set that night.
