The Vision Is Blurry

Album Review: Leela James – Fall For You

Fall For You

I remember seeing Leela James videos on VH1 Soul and always felt captivated by her vocals and vocal range. Her latest release Fall For You comes on the heels of her joining the latest season of R&B Divas: L.A.. This is the first full release that I’ve heard from her so I’m sure that I was in for a treat.

Fall For You begins with the uptempo “Who’s Gonna Love You More“. Fellow soul singer Anthony Hamilton joins Leela on “Say That” as both singers want to hear that they are wanted by their significant other. Leela James states how her world is without him: “See my sun won’t shine/Ain’t no stars at night/I swear the sky ain’t blue/It’s raining strong and gray without you/Ain’t no flame in the fire/I’m just empty inside/I’m sick but I’m there with all/I’m spending my days and being without you” Anthony Hamilton comes up crooning in his Old Negro Spiritual way: “So what’s it gonna be?/Even the blind could see/You can’t deny this love defined between you and me/See I love you baby (and I love you boy)/I couldn’t love you more/It’s you for me and me for you/This love we have it’s true“. Great song right here. “Everything” reminds me of when you find that you’ve been waiting for and it’s everything that you could imagine: “Waited so long/Seems like a lifetime/But then, yeah, came you/To mend my broken heart/Heaven, should be an angel/So this time I know it’s true/Seeing what’s real” “Stay With Me” is a very dope and intimate record. The type of record that makes you want to call out of work and curl up with your loved one: “Stay with me/Don’t leave me I need you/To hold me and touch me, kiss me/Never leave my side, I swing and you’re not here/I’m ust not the same” The album’s lead and title single “Fall For You” shows Leela giving her all to lover: “My heart is ready/For love and to be loved/And I chose you, baby/That’s the one thing I’m sure of“. Leela’s vocals are strong on this track and it gives you that sense of reality of when you give your all to another person.

Listening to Fall For You reminds me of the late 80′s/early 90′s R&B Soul sounds that defined that genre. Some great songs on this album and it’s one that you would want to pull your S/O close and just vibe to the music. Hopefully, Leela James being on the new season of R&B Divas: L.A. helps her gain some new fans.

How Can I Help You?

“As a black man, you are my equal, my counterpart. America looks down on us simply because of the color of our skin, so I expect us not to put each other down. Life me as I lift you, support me as I support you, love me as I love you.” – Nerd Boo

That was the response that I received today when I asked that question. I followed that up by asking do I make her feel safe and protected when we’re out? I was told that I do. What made that come up? Well, it seems as if with more issues of street harassment on the rise, more ladies are wishing that more men stick up for them. Now I’m starting to wonder am I doing something wrong? When I’m going to work or elsewhere in my travels, I’m alert to my surroundings. But am I supposed to be a vigilante searching out for justice?

I know that these things occur because I hear about them often. It’s disgusting what ladies have to deal with on the daily but if I’m accompanying them, I don’t hear none of that. Now is it because I may be an imposing figure? I get that a lot. “Oh Derek, you’re so intimidating.” I’m actually not. I remember I was dating a young lady a few years ago and a co-worker of hers was in town as well so we met up with them and he thought I was mean as fuck. I’m like really?!

But the point of this post is for us to have mature dialogue on this subject. You say that you want us to help you, we need to know how? I’ve seen hashtags and other posts on this but we need to communicate to each other and not play tit for tat. In the end, we all need each other. We can do better as a united front rather than cause further damage being divided.
