No stranger to the spotlight, Kiana Ledé is popping off to her fans with the release of a deluxe version of her debut album, KIKI. Her first album dropped this past April 3rd and since then has been featured as number 30 on the Billboard 200 charts. This new deluxe version of the album features “a couple more songs with a couple more stories to tell” as Kiana put it on a video on twitter.
The singer showcases her roots in her signature R&B sound with both beautiful lyrics and synths. Starting our countdown of the new songs added to this album brings us to the work of art titled “Ladylike.” In listening to this song fans are immediately transported to a peaceful state of mind. Kiana Ledé created an anthem for her listeners with this bop, and it’s lyrics redefine what being a true lady means. We have no choice but to stan.
Next on the list is “Chocolate” featuring Ari Lennox. The vibes here are both sensual and indulgent. This song is for the listeners craving some sweetness in their life. “Must Be Mine” featuring Ant Clemons is a soundtrack in and of itself of being infatuated with someone. Both empowering and romantic, Kiana Ledé proves her ability to portray the romanticism of wanting someone so much that they “must be yours.”
“Amazing” is a stand alone track that serves so much confidence in every lyric. The singer references how “amazing” it is to be fully in tune with oneself. This song is giving us all the self-love we need to take each day in stride. “Only Fan” featuring Jacquees is our absolute favorite of the new songs. The perfect marriage of female empowerment with sensual lyricism makes this song a masterpiece depicting a man’s longing to be a girl’s “only fan.” Finally, the last of the singer’s new tracks “None For You” has a fresh beat that rounds out the world of confidence Kiana Ledé invites listeners to join. The singer talks about how she can be “feeling herself” without having anything to give to anyone else- the perfect mantra of putting yourself first we could all benefit from.
Overall, Kiana Ledé gave her debut album an extra burst of life with the addition of new tracks on the deluxe version. The vibes are truly immaculate and these songs will be on replay after the first listen. KIKI is available on all streaming platforms.
