Leela James: Tell Me You Love Me

Con una voz ligeramente áspera pero acogedora, profunda y a la vez fascinante, Leela James posee el encanto y atractivo de cualquier amante del buen soul. Influencias de clásicos como Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder o Gladys Knight, comparada con Aretha Franklin o Chaka Khan, la realidad es que ella tiene un talento propio, repleto de buen soul como asi se puede apreciar en su single adelanto titulado "Tell Me You Love Me".
Una agradable balada soul que contiene un sample del clásico de 1978 de los Manhattans "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye".
El título del disco es My Soul, supone el comienzo de una nueva etapa con su debut para el legendario sello discográfico Stax Records, y aunque tambien cuenta con la colaboración de Raheem DeVaughn en la canción "Mr. Incredible - Ms. Unforgetable", se trata de un disco muy personal, donde retoma su faceta compositiva y nos muestra confiada y decidida su luz interior, la luz del faro que sirve de guía para el desembarco en la ribera del buen soul.


Letra
I unpacked my chest for you
Do everything that you want me to
Can't believe I gave you all my love
What in the world was I thinkin' of?

I just let it all slip away
With every minute, hour of the day
And if it really meant to be, just share with me
Why do I still feel incomplete?

Tell me, yeah
I need to know, baby
I got to know
Tell me, yeah
Tell me that you love me

If I give you what you need
Would you do the same thing for me?
'Cause I don't want to be alone
I want you here all night long

'Cause when you leave me, baby
I'm thinkin' about you always
I'm ashamed to say
How much I want you to stay


Baby, tell me, yeah
I need to know
Say it now
I got to know
Tell me that you love me

Now you see
I'm not tryin' to make a big fuss over this
But I'm just sayin', you need to let me know how you feel sometimes
Say it, it's not wrong, expressing yourself?
That's what wo- women like that, you know what I'm sayin'?
You know, you got to tap into your romantic side
Shoot, return the love, baby, return the love

I need to know, I want to know
I need to know, I want to know
I need to know, I want to know

I need to know, yeah baby
I got to know, oh, tell me
Tell me that you love me, love me, love me, love me
That you love me, love me, love me, love me


I unpacked my chest for you
Do everything that you want me to
Can't believe I gave you all my love
