Exclusive: LeToya Luckett Readies Edgy New Album

Patience is a word LeToya Luckett fans are familiar with.

For, despite sharing morsels of new music since 2009’s sophomore effort ‘Lady Love,’ the Destiny’s Child original has been balancing the recording of her third LP with an endless stream of TV work.

And while the latter is still a focus (as evidenced by her current roles on ‘Single Ladies’ and HBO’s ‘Ballers’), the ‘Torn’ singer is gearing up to push ahead full-speed with the eagerly awaited album – which has a tentative title ‘Until Then…’

Speaking to That Grape Juice at the 2015 BET Awards, Luckett described the project as “edgy R&B” and revealed that she’s getting ready to shoot the video for the set’s “first official single” – which judging by her wording isn’t recent effort ‘Don’t Make Me Wait (ft. T.I).’

Check out the interview above…

    Before we throw shade… Let me remind you children that Latoya, apart from Beyoncé is the only other DC member to have a Billboard #1 album…..

      BOOM! Loooooove LeToya… An ORIGINAL that was shaded out by Bey’s daddy at the brink of their major success with Say My Name… That man was pure evil and even his own family saw it later on and I’m glad Bey made it from underneath his clutches… If he was stealing from his own daughter, of course he was stealing from LeToya too… I Don’t blame her for wanting diff mngmnt… Nevertheless… WERRRRRK TOYA!!! Lady Love was EVERYTHING!!!

    Always respected Letoya’s hustle. Not only has she managed #1 album post DC but she also managed to get a platinum album where as the other members have struggled post DC and Beyoncé.

        Don’t compare her to Farrah she was an original girl. She deserves respect. AND DON’T ACT LIKE SHE ISN’T A BETTER ACTRESS THEN BEYONCE!

    BIH NEXT because had Kelly been kicked out the group around the time LeToya was, ain’t no telling where Kelly would be right now. For THE longest… Kelly was just associated to being Bey’s sidekick/amen corner for the longest. Happy she has come into her own, but that JUST RECENTLY HAPPENED. LeToya has worked her ass off to get where she is outside of DC… She was a TEEN when he tried to destroy her and she is now werrrking your television screen as a REAL actress and she puts out quality music. I loved DC but Michelle came in when the work was allllready done… The Writings On The Wall (CLASSIC btw) was already recorded when Michelle and Faroff were lip syncin FUH THEIR LIIIIVES!

    Glad we might be getting some new music from LeToya, as I liked Torn and She Ain’t Got (though the latter was a tad ratchet).

    Happy for LeToya and its sad to see all the SHADE being thrown. Anyway I’ll buy the album.

    BTW I think Kelly and LeToya are equal but I do agree if Kelly was thrown out back at 17-18 she would be in the same boat as LaTavia.

    Kelly rowland was the first member out of Destiny’s Child to win a Grammy solo and the first to be a ft on the song. I like LeToya but don’t discredit kelly because kelly net is more and she is the second highest success in the group. But I do respect LeToya because she has put in work to get to where she’s at today.

    Hey Good People! You guys are hilarious! LOL. When the girls were beefing 15 years ago, everybody was choosing sides. All of these girls have seen each other since the split (except for Kelly and LaTavia but they spoke on the phone). Some of them follow each other on social media and sometimes they even hang out. They all have their own things going and they are all successful in their own right. Maybe we should stop comparing them and just be as happy for these beautiful black women as they are for each other.
