Beyonce & Rihanna aren’t the only vocalists making independent moves this year.

For, kicking out the middle man to reach their fans directly are R&B singers LeToya Luckett, Lyrica Anderson and Chrisette Michele, all of whom are making major moves on an independent front this year.

What the ladies have been up to since the start of the year?

Catch up with our independent women below…

Following her departure from Capitol, Toya will release her third solo album this year, doing so via eOne two years after she bagged a role on VH1’s ‘Single Ladies‘ and after her self-titled debut LP was certified Platinum in the USA.

Elsewhere, Lyrica Anderson treats her fans to brand new material with the song ‘Hashtag’ and its Sean Alexander-directed visual.

The jam touches down following the release of the singer’s ‘King Me’ EP releases, and after she worked her magic on Jennifer Hudson’s discography with the cut ‘Walk it Out.’

Last, but not certainly not least, is Chrisette Michele.

Currently starring in ‘R&B Divas LA‘, the singer recently cut ties with Motown Records to launch her very own record label Rich Hipster, which can boast of having a distributor in Capitol!

Last November saw the release of her ‘The Lyricists’ Opus’ EP, peaking at #23 on Billboard’s R&B album tally.

    @musicnews_facts: Beyoncé and Jay Z are the only black artists alive to have more than four multi platinum albums. http://t.co/jz9syz6HOa

    • The Bajan Princess February 22, 2015

      Who gives a f***?

    • Slay_Hive February 22, 2015

      YAASS The Queen actually makes records outside of a singles chart!! <3

      • blue February 22, 2015

        doesnt that record only counts as long as they stay alive? Like is she-god forbids- dies tomorrow its no longer a record right?

      • Slay_Hive February 22, 2015

        What? I highly doubt she will die tomorrow though! kii Anything to try and discredit her success! Even if they “died” tomorrow, they would still be on the list of black artists with over 4 multi platinum albums, and the YOUNGEST!

    • MAN ON THE MOON February 22, 2015

      SMH!
      MARY J
      R KELLY

      • Slay_Hive February 22, 2015

      • The Beysus Impact February 22, 2015

        It’s not my tweet…

      • Slay_Hive February 22, 2015

        DEATH @ “PLAT PLAGUES” and “REALISED”
        .
        Looks like you need to conduct research in a dictionary first! 😉

      • MAN ON THE MOON February 22, 2015

        Realise = correct in the UK, Australia, and other English-speaking nations using the English tyle of spelling. (I’M NOT AMERICAN)

        Realize = American

        As for the other word it was a minor mistake on my behalf but it’s better than confusing sale and sell 😉

        DO NOT TRY ACT LIKE YOU GOT A PHD IN ENGLISH WHEN THE YOUR DISGUSTING GRAMMATICAL ERROR SAY OTHERS WISE NOW BE BLESSED

      • Slay_Hive February 22, 2015

        I don’t “act” like I have a PhD in English. I just find it funny that so many people try to come for other’s grammatical errors and telling them to conduct research, when they can’t spell! tis all!

      • MAN ON THE MOON February 22, 2015

        THAT’S ALL* 🙄
        I REST MY CASE BUT HEY I’LL LET YOU BE 😉

    • Winner February 22, 2015

      Take that s*** to a Beyonce post. Her fans on here are so immature.

  3. Hur February 22, 2015

    I do love Letoya! I want an new album from her!

    • Gina February 22, 2015

      Same.

  4. Rated R February 22, 2015

    No Toya !!! She Needs a Label to push the material . Not saying she should of stayed with Capitol because we the fans was basically telling them what singles to push but another label . But wish her the very best

    • The Bajan Princess February 22, 2015

      Major labels and R&B artists (unless you’re already established like Beyoncé) don’t mix.

      • TheElusiveLamb February 22, 2015

        I agree. And sometimes, the established artists struggle with the direction and distribution of labels. I just don’t think record labels know what they are doing anymore, more specifically with R&B artists.

  5. TheElusiveLamb February 22, 2015

    I’m iffy for the independent route for LeToya & Chrisette bc I prefer them under mainstream labels with mainstream distribution,but their pockets will be in a better place. I really appreciate the quality of their work/artistry, so as long as music is released, my soul can be undisturbed.

  6. #TeamTinashe Stan (New Single “All Hands On Deck” Has Been Announced ) February 22, 2015

    I actually like that Lyrica Anderson girl. She’s good.

    TGJ (Sam,David,Rashad) post Tinashe’s “All Hands On Deck” single featuring Iggy Azalea.

  7. christinastherealtalent February 22, 2015

    WTH you talking about Bey making independent moves this year? The same heffa who tried to convince people back in 2011 that she was her own manager later on revealing she did in fact have a manager?

    • Kyle February 22, 2015

      When did she reveal that?

  8. 내가 제일 잘 나가 February 22, 2015

    3 who’s

  9. The Beysus Impact February 22, 2015

    @musicnews_facts: Did you know Beyoncé sold over 50 million records during her ‘Sasha Fierce’ era. http://t.co/JQkc8pJ570

    • Winner February 22, 2015

      Ummm good for her? But what does that have to do with this post?

  10. The Beysus Impact February 22, 2015

    @GagaLovesBey: RT @Bey_Legion: Basically, anything Beyoncé does breaks records at this point. http://t.co/A3OrgRaxKm

  11. Julian February 22, 2015

    Stop trying to make Lyrica Anderson happen!

    • Gina February 22, 2015

      If you ran here to say that, she’s already happened.

  12. Winner February 22, 2015

    I love Letoya, she always comes through with QUALITY and sweet, strong vocals. She’s always working. Much respect to her!!! I can’t get with Chrisette. Her first two albums were amazing, but she lost me after that. I don’t know who the other one is.

  13. ya February 22, 2015

    Im ready for new Letoya music I wanna see some promo vids for Im Ready or Together

  14. Paulo February 22, 2015
