Houston, Texas– The summer is about to heat up with R&B and soul singer-songwriter Leela James’ new single and video, “Right Back In It”. The highly anticipated single is the follow-up to her 2021 #1 smash, “Complicated” and is written by Leela and Franci Richard and produced by Rex Rideout. The suspenseful music video explores deep love and romance between two fugitives that are on the run, but nothing matters more than their getting “Right Back In It”.
The creative music video, filmed in Houston, has a cameo from Houston-based rapper, Lil Flip and is produced by Dang Films. Leela James continues to wow audiences with her unique style, powerful voice, and SOUL! She has not slowed down this year, touring with Maxwell, Fantasia, and Anthony Hamilton.
“My music is my art and I’m always excited to share my craft with the world. Right Back In It is special as it highlights the importance of getting back to yourself, getting back to love, and getting back to what makes you feel good,” says Leela James.
She has plans to implement a special initiative for current female HBCU students this fall that will help them get “Right Back In It” with their academic focus and preparing them mentally ready to tackle their life’s goals. “Right Back In It” is the first single from Leela’s upcoming project that will be released in the Fall of 2023.
