R&B Temptress Kiana Ledé Releases New Album Grudges




Platinum-selling Phoenix-raised and Los Angeles-based artist and R&B’s foremost femme fatale Kiana Ledé proudly presents her anxiously-awaited new album Grudges today via The Heavy Group/Republic Records.

A journey through heartbreak, lust, sex, pain, and transformation, it finds Kiana at her most vulnerable, vibrant, and vital all at once. She opens up like never before over an ever-evolving sonic backdrop, dripping with bedroom-ready R&B vibes, smoked-out alternative experimentation, and subversive pop appeal. She invited a few friends along for the ride as Bryson Tiller turns up on “Gone” and Khalid lends his instantly recognizable vocals to “Where You Go.” Piano underlines the uplifting title track “Grudges” [feat. Kiki & Friends]. The “Friends” elevate this track even higher, thanks to the collective power of Kyle Dion, Joyce Wrice, Sinesd Harnett, and Destin Conrad. From the scene-setting opener “Bitch Bitch (INTROlude)” to the beguiling and bewitching finale “Magic,” these 17 tracks represent her most unfiltered, unbreakable, and undeniable vision thus far.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

She paved the way for the project with “Deeper.” Beyond racking millions of streams, it earned critical praise. Rap-Up proclaimed, “Kiana Ledé has found her sweet spot with her music and is continuing to hone in,” and Rated R&B hailed it as “intimate.” Perhaps, Vibe put it best, “This era of Kiana Ledé is grown and sensual.

The album also features the fan favorite single “Jealous” with Ella Mai. The track has already amassed millions of streams in addition to attracting widespread acclaim. UPROXX exclaimed, “Beloved for her beautiful yet heartbreaking ballads about betrayal (heard on tracks like ‘Ur Best Friend’ featuring Kehlani), the singer and songwriter dug deep within herself on her new song.Billboard touted it on “R&B Hip-Hop Fresh Picks of the Week” and raved, “It might be Kiana’s birthday, but we’re the ones getting a gift.” Not to mention, SWEETY HIGH attested, “The track has all of the trappings of a ’90s R&B superhit, feeling totally classic yet modern in its edge, as the two share their own unique perspectives on jealousy within their relationships.

Experience Grudges now.
