If You Don't Mind

Album: Let Love Rule (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This was produced by Kirk Franklin. Ledisi told ABC Radio that she had been waiting to work with the gospel star for quite some time. She told him, "You've worked with everybody. I've been waiting as your friend in the wings for you to call me one day and say 'Hey Ledisi. Got a song for you.'"

    "So he said, 'No, no. I promise you. I'll have something for you. Give me a minute. I got you.' And then maybe two months later, he called and said, 'Led, I have a song. I'm gonna send it.' I said, 'Cool. Finally. My turn. My turn.'"
  • Ledisi said the song is "about myself and my journey."

    "The line of the whole album, it's about love," she added. "But for me, the end [of the disc] is [that] we're trying to get there to that great spiritual elevation."
