R&B songstress Teedra Moses is readying her sophomore album ‘The Young Lioness’ for an August release. The long-awaited LP sees the critically-acclaimed Moses return to the music scene after what appeared to be a three year hiatus. Speaking to VIBE late last month, Moses said she spent her time out of the limelight writing for other artists including Mary J. Blige and Macy Gray. ‘I’m not the kind of person who’s just gonna put together an album in two months or two weeks. I like to present myself over a period of time’ she added. Though no definite lead single has been chosen, Moses is rooting for a track called ‘Love’s Gonna Be’ – which samples Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrel’s ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’.
I’m really anticipating Teedra’s new CD. Her first, ‘Complex Simplicity’, was superb – with great tracks such as ‘Backstroke’, ‘You Better Tell Her’ and ‘Be Your Girl’. Hopefully, this time around, she’ll get the recognition she deserves.
