Meshell Ndegeocello - "Conviction" (audio)

Meshell Ndegeocello's newest track from her forthcoming album Comet, Come to Me is one of the best she's delivered since she jumped ship from Madonna's Maverick label.

Considering this woman has had one of the most consistently stellar careers of any singer/songwriter/bassist of her time, that’s a tall order to fill! “Conviction” is a fiercely intelligent and touching song about watching your friend make the same mistake over and over to the point where you need to disconnect. The lyrics are smart, touching and deserving of your attention. It would be heartbreaking to be on the receiving end of hearing your friend say: “You choose delusions so you can take him back / Turns out you were right and I was wrong / For me your life is just a sad song.”
