Leela James is back and better than ever! Leela’s leading single “Don’t Want You Back” earned the singer an #1 as the song climbed up the Urban AC Charts. Just yesterday we caught up with Leela James as she spoke about her new album “Did It For Love.”

Calling it one of her most vulnerable projects yet, we spoke to Leela about the direction of her new album and the inspiration behind it. Leela also spoke about her upcoming tours with Daley, Maxwell, and Ledisi.
YMMW: You new album “Did it for Love “ will be released this Friday, so far you have unleashed a few songs from the album.  In the tracks we’ve have heard so far you are being vulnerable with your experiences of  love with all the ups and downs that comes with it. What is one that you would say that you did for love that has been the biggest inspiration for your new album?

 Leela James: Having my children has definitely been one of my greatest musical inspirations. The hard work and sacrifice you make to maintain the balance of working on music, having a relationship and raising kids has inspired my music–all of it, the good, bad and the ugly!

YMMW: What are you most excited for the fans to hear when they listen to your sixth studio album “Did it for Love.”

Leela James: I’m excited for fans to hear another side of me. “Did it for Love” is very vulnerable and I completely expose myself through the music. Fans will also see a different side of me vocally; the songs are more intense than anything I’ve done in the past.

YMMW: Along with your new album arriving this Friday, you’ll be kicking off your new tour with Daley on April 7th what can fans expect to see from you on this tour?

Leela James: The shows are going to be very high energy, filled with great music!

YMMW: A few years ago we saw you hit the reality TV scene on R&B Diva’s what have you learned most about your experience on that show and would you ever do reality television again?

Leela James: I learned that reality TV isn’t based in reality, but I would do it again depending on the situation.

YMMW: As a successful artist who’s stayed true to her R&B roots, what are your thoughts of live stream award shows such as the Grammy’s that don’t give the proper representation of R&B when it comes to the live award show presentation.

 Leela James: It is unfortunate that there are so many politics involved that these award shows aren’t always about the music.

YMMW: Your single “Fall For Love” was a major success gaining over 10 million views on YouTube and being one of everybody’s wedding songs. On Your New album you’ve done it again with your track  “All Over Again” in a time where hardly anyone in music are doing romantic ballads. How do you feel when you release these romantic ballads and see that they become so successful?

Leela James: When I finished recording “All Over Again,” we were sitting in the studio listening to it and I had that “Wow” moment. I didn’t know how it would come out and it was like “Fall For Love” on steroids! Listening to it was so inspiring it made me want to renew my vows. It felt really good so I can’t wait for people to hear this one.

YMMW: Not only are you kicking off your own tour in April you will also be joining Maxwell on his Summers’ tour. What are you most excited about going on tour with Maxwell and Ledisi?

Leela James: I’m so excited to be back on the road with some incredibly talented artists. It is really all about good music so I’m looking forward to being on stage and having fun!

YMMW: You acted along side Syleena Johnson in her 2015 film Couples Therapy; will fans get to see you doing any more acting in the future?

Leela James: Yes, that’s the plan!

YMMW: With two new tours kicking off this spring/summer and your new album arriving Friday, what else is in store for Leela James?

Leela James: I will definitely be putting out more music; I’m back in the studio recording. I’m also working on a worldwide tour and TV/film are still on my bucket list!

Leela James new album ‘Did It For Love’ Is now available on all digital retailers, you can aslo check out Leela on the road this spring as her new tour with Daley on their  nationwide tour. Tickets are available now.
