As Ledisi readies the release of her upcoming album, Let Love Rule, the Grammy-Award winning songstress shares yet another titillating single entitled “Us4Ever” featuring B.J. The Chicago Kid.
A follow up to “High” and “Here,” “Us4Ever” arrives as a complicated love letter, sealed with promises of “happily ever afters” even in the face of adversity. As many of us know, there is no easy way to love but with the right person — it’s most definitely worth it. “Rex Rideout played me this groove and immediately I wrote the chorus,” Ledisi tells EBONY. “After that, we were laughing while writing a song about a relationship that is slightly dysfunctional but functional. That might sound crazy to some but love is that simple and yet very complex for so many people.’ Us 4ever’ is a poetic way of saying you get on my nerves but I love you no matter what.”
Tapping B.J. The Chicago Kid for an additional flare, the song easily becomes a harmonious mix of buttery coos and groovy tunes beautified by Ledisi’s signature vocals. “Rex worked with Jairus “JMo” Mozee on the music. He is an amazing guitarist, you can hear his genius in the song. When it was done Rex thought it would be great to have B.J. The Chicago Kid make an appearance to have a male perspective for balance. BJ worked with Jairus and Rex on his Grammy- Nominated debut so it fit perfectly.”
