Leela James sings because the music is in her blood. It always has been. Rhythm accompanied her as a child in Compton, CA. Melody is what got her her first major label deal at 20 years old. And now, set to release her sixth studio album Did It For Love on 3/31/17, a personal magnum opus written with her two beautiful children in mind? Harmony and soul.
This spring, James will embark on a headlining nationwide tour in support of Did It For Love. The album’s first single, Don’t Want You Back, is already top 5 on the Urban AC charts and continues to rise. Spotify shows fans in 60+ countries. All this on the back of her critically acclaimed 2014 album Fall For You, which featured three top 15 hits including Say That and the cultural touchstone Fall For You.
For James, dedicating her energy entirely to writing and recording Did It For Love left her aching to get back on the road. “I am so excited to be going back on tour. There’s nothing like interacting with people and seeing how the crowd reacts to my new music. This album has been a wonderful experience, just an incredible project to work on. I feel so positive and I want to try to bring that onstage, and to everyone I meet.”
