Last week, acclaimed R&B/Soul singer-songwriter Leela James released her brand new single, “Don’t Want You Back“, and today she is giving fans an accompanying video that portrays the powerful track’s story. Directed by the talented Chris Scholar, the video is set in South Central Los Angeles and lends a cinematic styling to the song’s narrative. “Don’t Want You Back” is the first single off of James’ forthcoming album, slated for release in early 2017.
The new album comes on the heels of her 2014 album ‘Fall For You‘, a surprise hit which saw three Top 15 records including the feel-good “Set Me Free” and the title track “Fall For You” (J&T Records/BMG). Given her recent success, the sultry songstress figures to be a mainstay on the touring and festival circuits in 2017.
