“COMPLICATED’ NAMED ONE OF ROLLING STONE’S TOP 50 R&B SONGS OF 2021
“SEE ME” ALBUM IS AVAILABLE NOW!
(New York, NY-December 17, 2021) R&B Soul Powerhouse Leela James is closing 2021 with the release of her new video “See Me,”which is the title track of her new album SEE ME that was released earlier this year in July via distributor BMG. Directed by Eric Daniels and Matthew Houck for Customer Support”, “See Me” is an anthem for anyone that’s been overlooked or feels they don’t matter. The song served as a fitting and emotional vocal performance tribute at the George Floyd Commemorative Concert in Houston in May 2021 to Mr. Floyd and to all the black men and women who lost their lives to senseless brutality.
Leela James’ #1 hit song “Complicated” is also being celebrated as one of “Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Songs of 2021” (click here). An amazing end to 2021, “Complicated” spent three weeks in the top spot on both Billboard and Mediabase Adult R&B Airplay charts. Written and produced by James and longtime collaborator Rex Rideout, the infectious single has percolated through radio stations around the country with airplay in major markets like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, Nashville, Detroit, Denver, and many more. “Complicated” showcases James’ distinctive, raw vocal style and showcases her catchy and emotive lyrical storytelling. James also performed the hit single on the Emmy Award-winning show The Real (click here). Leela then returned with a soul-stirring remix “Complicated (The Remix)” featuring Anthony Hamilton. The infectious single still holds the same raw emotion as the original and elevates with the addition of Hamilton. There is no doubt that these two have great chemistry! The Remix is available on all digital platforms now.
The new album SEE ME offers depth through the transparency of the heart. Coursing through the album’s veins, a raw genuineness and a strong passion lie in each song while revealing an awakening of the spirit tied to the complexity of love. The album features singer/rapper Mumu Fresh and songwriting and production by Rex Rideout and Jairus “JMo” Mozee. Leela is very excited to share this new project with her fans, and this 11-track album will take listeners on a ride of sheer emotion. See Me is a follow-up to her commercially successful sixth studio album Did It For Love.
In addition, to lead single “Complicated” Leela also released visuals for singles “Put It On Me,” “You’re The One” and ”‘Break My Soul”featuring rapper/singer Mumu Fresh.
