LETOYA/Lady Love: The Album

LeToya Luckett, professionally known as LeToya, is an R&B singer-songwriter and actress, and a founding member of the multi-platinum-selling female R&B group, Destiny’s Child, with whom she won two Grammy® Awards and released many successful commercial recordings.

LeToya’s 2006 debut self-titled solo album for Capitol Records reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 albums in July 2006 and was RIAA-certified Platinum (Dec 2006). The first single, “Torn,” heated up BET’s 106 & Park Top 10 video
countdown, eventually closing out at #2, and that year LeToya was named “one of the best new artists of 2006” (AOL) and “Top Songwriter of 2006” (ASCAP).

In 2009, LeToya returns with her sophomore album, Lady Love. An intricate web of lyrical & melodic fiber that weaves in and out of the good, the bad, and indifferent, Lady Love is a true testament to the ups and downs that come with love and relationships. “Not Anymore,” written and produced by Ne-Yo, is an empowering mantra about being fed up with toxic relationships with a cleverly scripted, powerful video set in the revolutionary period of the 1960s (directed by Bryan Barber).

Other album highlights include LeToya’s heart-wrenching, soulful rendition of the ballad “Regret,” and works her way up from mid- to up-tempo tracks like the title track “Lady Love.” Pop-influenced songs like “Drained” and the follow up track “She Ain’t Got… ”, written by Chris Brown display LeToya’s passion and vocal range.
