Le Ru drops off empowering new single "Ginger"

"I make music for women to feel confident about themselves, especially in their sensuality which for the longest time has been shamed and taken advantage of," Le Ru says of her latest single.

Boston-based indie Kenyan singer, song-writer, recording and performing artist Le Ru delivers a playful yet sultry new single titled ‘Ginger’ where she is unapologetically the Sweet and spicy hummingbird; both vulnerable and sexy, over a highlife inspired Afro jazz and soul fusion instrumental produced by Random Beatz who too is the producer of her Hot Single ‘Forbidden Fruit’ that came out late 2019.


'Ginger' is Nigerian slang, specifically in Lagos that means to 'make someone feel good or to spice them up.'


In the song, Le Ru shares a flirtatious story of passion where the man is submissive to her needs for ultimate satisfaction… “I make music for women to feel confident about themselves, especially in their sensuality which for the longest time has been shamed upon and taken advantage of. It’s time to turn the tables and reclaim back the woman.”
