Singer/songwriter Jamila Woods is best known for her stunning vocal takes on Chance The Rapper's "Sunday Candy" and "Blessings" but now she's stepping out on her own with her debut HEAVN. The newest offering is a track featuring Chance called "LSD." This isn't some of that old Chance "acid rap," but an ode to their home city of Chicago with "LSD" standing for Lake Shore Drive. Jamila had this to say to The FADER about the song.
“When I was a kid, getting on Lake Shore Drive from the south side to go downtown was magical. I lived on the east coast for a few years and people would laugh when I told them we have beaches and a lake we can swim in. I always wanted to write about that. A lot of people get Chicago wrong. I've developed this protective feeling about how we're portrayed, and at the same time I'm acutely aware of the issues we face and the root causes of these issues. It's important to me that there's not just one story told about our city. LSD is an ode to Chicago, a song for the complicated love I have for my city.”
HEAVN will be released on Chicago indie Closed Sessions and will feature Chance, Donnie Trumpet, and a host of others. Check out the tracklisting and listen to the song below.
