With the release of her first single and music video, “Right Back in It”, R&B and soul singer-songwriter, is poised to revive soul music like never before. The groovy song, written by Leela and Franci Richard and conceived and produced by Rex Rideout, is a follow-up to her #1 smash from 2021, “Complicated”. The single just cracked the Top 10 on the Adult R&B Billboard Chart. In September, Ms. James released the second track, “Thought U Knew” along with a music visual that featured Leela’s good friends, Syleena Johnson, Avery Sunshine & Medusa. The 3-minute visual paid homage to one of Leela’s favorite movies, “Set it off”. This single is swiftly moving up the charts and is a fan favorite. “My music is my art and I’m always excited to share my craft with the world. “Thought U Knew” is a project that was therapeutic for me, says Leela James. As James has toured the world this year, she followed one of her longtime passions to host a “Girl Talk” session at various HBCU campuses. The Girl Talk series has so far made stops at Morris Brown College, Clark Atlanta University, and Prairie View A&M University. The emotional and informative one-hour sessions consisted of chatting with students about health, wellness, sticking together, finding self-love, and taking their goals seriously. Leela will wrap 2023 participating in a voter’s campaign with Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, and several holiday initiatives to help families throughout the city of Houston. She will debut her “Thought You Knew” US Tour in January 2024.
