Meshell Ndegeocello Releases The 5th Dimension Feat. Hawtplates


Meshell Ndegeocello’s “The Fifth Dimension” featuring Hawtplates is the latest single to emerge from her upcoming Omnichord Real Book album. Hawtplates is a vocal group consisting of Justin Hicks, Kenita Miller-Hicks and Jade Hicks. “The Fifth Dimension” mines fusion and R&B to relay a message about love. The album is deeply inspired by the passing of her parents and the way her perspective on life changed plus the rediscovery of her first real book. The book is a collection of jazz standards that jazz musicians learn in order to master the genre.  Her debut for the Blue Note label arrives on June 16th and the tour will start on June 7th.
