You can take the album teaser off repeat now. Jaidene Veda this week released her new album, shadowboxing heroes (mixes and monologues), and simply just draws out the tease. Whew. We’ve got a few clips from the 23-track album for you to hear below.
Her beginning hums on “Open Love Letter” take us straight to Meshell Ndegeocello nostalgia as she then transitions into straight seductress spoken word, tightening her grip on your poor, poor heart. A soothing Ursula Rucker joins on “When” while Jai tickles us further with her backing vocals on the moving downtempo track.
