It looks like her music career isn’t the only thing Letoya Luckett is bringing ‘Back To Life.’
In addition to scoring a recurring role on FOX’s hit show, ‘Rosewood,’ Luckett has reportedly joined the all-star cast of USA Network’s ‘Unsolved’ – a scripted series based on the murder investigations of late rap icons Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
LeToya Luckett serves up a slice of the cinematic in the video for new single ‘Back 2 Life.’
Written, directed, and produced by Michael Vaughn Hernandez (along with the singer), the clip sees the Destiny’s Child graduate flexher acting muscles. Apt, as she’s spent recent years racking up credits in shows such as ‘Single Ladies’ and most recently ‘Rosewood.’
Watch the dramatic visual, which is lifted from Luckett’s new album ‘Until Then,’ after the jump. Thomas Q. Jones co-stars…
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.’
After conquering music charts with her self-titled, #1 debut album, Letoya Luckett turned her attention to the silver screen with films like ‘Preacher’s Kid’ and ‘Note To Self.’ Now, fans who learned to love Lady Luck from those ventures and her foray to TV via her recurring role on VH1’s hit series, ‘Single Ladies,’ can rejoice at news the ‘She Don’t’ singer does have a return to the small screen in her sights.
Officially joining the cast of FOX’s ‘Rosewood’ (starring Morris Chestnut), Luckett is set to play the heartthrob’s new love interest.
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).’
