Shiny-lipped, gold hoop earring wearing singer Leah Labelle sat down with ARTISTdirect.com for our latest installment of our brilliant and thrilling -not to mention enthralling- See the Music segment. LL spoke about her song "Sexify," which is, if we might add, as sexy as the singer herself. We knew we had to have her in for one of our chats, especially since "Sexify" is one of our favorite words ever.
"I wanted [a song that] pushed limits but was still safe enough," the singer said about "Sexify." Did she succeed? Oh hell to the yeah.
LaBelle also says that she wanted "Sexify" to be "the record that reminded you of a good time, took you to a good place, with that retro feel, when music felt good, but [I] brought it to today, with what today sounds like."
Mission accomplished. The song has an "old soul" energy and it plays like it's from a different era, but still current-sounding. It is throwbacky, but it makes you feel good and want to groove. That's not easy to do, but Leah LaBelle makes it look simple.
The singer also revealed that the song and video are based off Cosmopolitan magazine covers tags and photos.
