Ledisi premieres “Shut Up” from new LP, Pieces Of Me | New Music

Following up on her new project’s title track [unveiled last month – listen below if you missed it], New Orleans hailing soulful beast Ledisi gives Okayplayer the drop on new song “Shut Up” from Pieces Of Me – her forthcoming album number five, set for release on June 14 through Verve Forecast and efficiently now available to pre-order on Amazon.

‘Please forgive me, I don’t mean to be rude – it’s not my normal behaviour. When people saying things to knock me off my dreams, I can’t help it, gotta tell em shut up…’ she explains on this upbeat, anti-hater ditty – take a listen below.
