“With the ‘Pieces of Me’ album, I wanted to show the dimensional side of Ledisi… I can be sweet, Hot, a lover, and sometimes, a fighter. I also wanted to write and sing music that expresses the sides of women, and hopefully teach men how to love those complex women.” -Ledisi
Complexity is often used to describe women, and applies to black women in particular. We have so many sides to ourselves — spiritual, sensual, emotional, tough, decisive, soft — and it is important to make room for all parts of who we are. It can be tough sometimes. People may not get every aspect of your nature. You might even find that certain friends and relatives are better for playing out certain qualities. And that’s fine. As long as you are exploring and expressing all your most positive dynamics, you are on the positive road that Ledisi describes. And the more you love your many sparkling facets, the more the people in your life will appreciate your complexity.
Reflect on and enjoy all the different parts of who you are today! Enjoy yourselves Madames!
