Whenever there's a new release by Ledisi, it's time to take notice. Such a force in soul music, she knows how to put out a good track. With a new album, The Wild Card, coming out August 28th, we're likely going to get a rich taste of all that Ledisi has to offer.

In preparation for the album, Ledisi has released the first single, Where I Am. The song has a great soulful feel to it, with some flavors of jazz running through the track. Something about the song just evokes the feel of being on the city streets in summer time.

While evoking the feelings of summertime, Ledisi's Where I Am, is about a woman speaking to a potential suitor. She find the man intriguing but ultimately, if he's going to be with her, he's going to have to be able to come to her and be able to rise to her level.

Since her debut album, Soulsinger: The Revival, came out in 2000, Ledisi's had a wonderful career. She has released seven studio albums to date, and has received consistent recognition, with twelve Grammy Award nominations. Will this year be the year she's able to lock it in and get a win? If Where I am is reminiscent of the rest of the album, it's certainly possible.
