New Song: LeToya Luckett – ‘Back 2 Life’

Destiny’s Child Diva Returns With Latest Single

letoya-luckett-that-grape-juice-2016-19101010

LeToya Luckett is back!

The R&B songbird has hatched new single ‘Back 2 Life’ – the latest taste of new album ‘Until Then…’

A moody mid-tempo, the track follow’s last year’s ‘Don’t Make Me Wait’ featuring T.I.

With acting serving as the Destiny Child graduate’s main focus in recent years, it appears she’s returning to build on the momentum of her Platinum certified debut and hit singles such as ‘Torn’ and ‘Regret.’

Does her new number favourably compare?

Listen below and let us know…

We like.

Sonically made up of what’s hot (see: R&B with minimalist production), the track does a decent job of reintroducing Toya to her core audience. The ‘Soul II Soul’ sample at the end was a cute touch too.

We would, however, like to hear her come swinging with a song that is less of a laid-back groove and one with more of a bold bite. For LeToya lovers, a tracks like ‘All Eyez On Me’ and ‘Regret’ immediately come to mind. Or, if veering slower, then cuts like ‘Obvious’ or ‘Good To Me.’

‘Back 2 Life’ boasts a pleasant taste. We’re ready for more of the meal.

Your thoughts?

    She looks so good and she’s never disappointed musically to be honest. Regret is still a jam.

    This is hot but like Sam said its def not “ive been gone for 6 years, I’m back” material

    I blame drake and jhene aiko for popularizing that speed sung/talk crap. Everybody sounds like they are singing the same song!

      Letoya been making music like this. She was doing the whole HTown sound/chopped and screwed/moody/mixtape thing ten years ago. With that being said, she could’ve came harder.

      Letoya was in the group that started the sung talk. Drake and Jhene didnt start that. Go back to No No No and every song after.

    Love it. I’m so proud of all the DC girls. They have to be some of the sweetest southern girls in the world. The only one of the girls I never got into was Farrah. She had that funky LA attitude.

      She’s the bitter one too so she can keep it. Every interview is about something that happened over twenty years ago with the group.

        “Amber”, too, uses autotune. Sorry.. And the purpose of the filter on this song is in lieu of it being “trap soul”. It’s very prevalent and apart of that genre of music. Doesnt matter who wrote it.

    Sam good shout out to OBVIOUS that song should have been a proper single on her Debut.

    This track cool but wanted something bit more punchy where a wig could be snatched.

    Loving the salute to Soul II Soul track

    Glad to see Letoya getting herself going again she is the only member of DC other than B to graduate to a platinum album as a solo artist. I also like the relationship she and Michelle have developed. I hope that she goes in the R&B soul lane.

        She was certified platinum back in December 2006 to be exact. Album dropped in July 2006 where she garnered Gold within 2 months. It’s not heresay, it’s a FACT she went platinum!

        “let’s not” act as Billboard itself didn’t confirm RIAA certified ‘LeToya’ the debut Platinum and “let’s not” act as if Kelly actually has one in the USA. yeah let’s not

    Nice. Sounds like Sevyn Streeter wrote it and Tamar did the vocal reference.
