“Voulez-vous coucher avec moi? (Do you want to sleep with me tonight?)” is what singer-songwriter LaDé wants to know on her new sultry single “Teaser.” Premiering exclusively on ThisIsRnb, the track is a great edition to your Valentine’s Day & Chill playlist. Clearly inspired by late 90s/early 2000s R&B, the Congolese Canadian singer is bringing sexy back to R&B. Her sultry vocal performance is enhanced by the song’s sensual harmonies. Lyrically, the song switches between English and her native language French.
On first listen, it would be easy to mistake the song as just another bedroom gem. However, upon further listen one finds an interesting twist in the song’s lyrics. According to LaDé, “the song is about the desire to become a better version of yourself after experiencing a rather toxic relationship, and then showing off that better version to the infamous ex.” Who doesn’t love a good glow up just to flex on your ex?
Tomorrow might be Valentine’s Day to many, but for others it is more aptly titled Single’s Awareness Day! Regardless of which one you find yourself celebrating, this new LaDé is appropriate to play.
