What a pleasant surprise Letoya Luckett has blessed us with a new song “Back 2 Life“.  The Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter was first introduced to us as one of the original members of Destiny’s Child who was famously replaced after problems with management after their second album The Writing’s On The Wall.  She went on to have two successful #1 selling solo albums (the only Destiny’s Child member besides Beyoncé to garner a #1 album on the Billboard 200 album charts) and then she transitioned into a very steady acting career.

 

It’s been over 5 years since her last studio album, Lady Love, and the fans of the R&B veteran have been waiting patiently for new music well she has delivered with a new track.  Sampling Soul II Soul’s classic “Back to Life (However Do You Want Me),” LeToya sings about a relationship going downhill.

 

“Maybe we’ll survive,” she sings over an airy trap-inspired instrumental. “Maybe it’s a lie / To keep our love alive / But I know you want to ride / So, I gotta get back to life / Back to reality,” she sings.

 

 

Ms. Luckett can be seen on Fox’s drama series Rosewood. She is also set to play the iconic Dionne Warwick, in an upcoming biopic based on her autobiography, “My Life, As I See It Sure”. This new role is set to be her most challenging role yet and let’s hope it gets her the true recognition she deserves.

 

Fans will know there has been murmurs of a third album from miss Luckett for over two-years. With the latest title, Until Then, let’s hope it’s coming at the top of 2017. According to PEOPLE, Luckett has been spending the last five years working on the album, taking her time discovering the music and making sure it met her vision.

 

“I’m an actress now, as well,” she says. “I was leaving the set and going to the studio, still working on the album. I just didn’t want to come out with anything. I really wanted to take my time with it.”

“It’s like therapy for me, going in there and writing records and pouring my heart out,” she says. “It’s something I had to learn how to do. Sometimes, it was a little too close to home, but then I was like, ‘Nah, there are real people going through that and they can relate.’”

 

According to our sources, Toya recently wrapped up three short music videos for singles, one which co-stars Thomas Q. Jones, as her love-interest.

 

“I hope people can listen to the album and hear my heart,” she says. “For me, I get healing from music. I want people to experience that. It’s not about being liked, not about the approval. It’s about the experience and pouring my heart. I just want people to hear my heart and that’s it.”
