Last Tuesday, Dallas-raised and L.A.-based soul singer N'dambi saw the release of her debut Stax Records-released album, Pink Elephant. And, to promote her new release, the one-time Erykah Badu back-up singer and co-writer stopped on by the offices of the new FADER-run soul music-centric site, Suite903, to perform some intimate, toned-down renditions of a couple of her new songs. Above, check N'dambi singing "Can't Hardly Wait" (the original music video for which can be seen here). Far as I can tell, it's neither a reference to The Replacements' song nor the 1998 teen comedy, but somehow shines nonetheless. It's the repetition of the line "I keep fucking with you," that does it for me, I think.
And, after the jump, go ahead and check out another clip from the performance session, that one featuring the singer's take on her song "L.I.E." It'll warm you up real nice, promise.
