LeToya Luckett, professionally known as LeToya, is an R&B singer-songwriter and actress, and a founding member of the multi-platinum-selling female R&B group, Destiny's Child, with whom she won two Grammy Awards and released many successful commercial recordings. LeToya's 2006 debut self-titled solo album for Capitol Records reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 albums in July 2006 and was RIAA-certified Platinum (Dec 2006). The first single, "Torn", heated up BET's 106 & Park Top 10 video countdown, eventually closing out at #2, and that year LeToya was named "one of the best new artists of 2006" (AOL) and "Top Songwriter of 2006" (ASCAP).

In 2009, LeToya returns with her sophomore album, Lady Love. An intricate web of lyrical & melodic fiber that weaves in and out of the good, the bad and the indifferent, Lady Love is a true testament to the ups and downs that come with love and relationships. "Not Anymore", written and produced by Ne-Yo, is an empowering mantra about being fed up with toxic relationships with a cleverly-scripted, powerful video set in the revolutionary period of the 1960s (directed by Bryan Barber).

Other album highlights include LeToya's heart-wrenching, soulful rendition of the ballad "Regret", and works her way up from mid- to up-tempo tracks like the title track "Lady Love". Pop-influenced songs like "Drained" and the follow up track "She Ain't Got...", written by Chris Brown display LeToya's passion and vocal range.

LeToya lays down a new chapter in her musical diary with Lady Love.

Muze PNote LADY LOVE had several projected release dates across 2008 and early 2009, eventually landing in August 2009. Involving production and songwriting input from a great number of people--including Tank, Ne-Yo, Ron Feemster, Ron Felder, and Elvis Williams--and 15 tracks deep, it's just as scattered and uneven as LeToya's self-titled debut, and sounds even more fussed-over, even without the knowledge about its delays. That does not mean there is a shortage of high points. "Regret," with a significant sonic resemblance to Mary Mary's "God in Me" (from the rat-a-tat snares to the alternately gliding and prodding vocal attack), is a mesmeric kiss-off. The pummeling "She Ain't Got," nearly overloaded with assaultive sounds from every direction, is startlingly brash. On the melancholy "Take Away Love," LeToya proves to be a good fit for Ryan Leslie's meringue-light yet affecting melodic sense. Despite so many involved hands, the album is clearly directed toward the pop market, heavier on gleaming synthesizers and in-your-face production.
