Product Description

Currently signed to Capitol Records, she is working on her self-titled debut album, scheduled for a spring 2006 release, includes her lead single All Eyes On Me which features today's most recognizable rappers out of the Southwest, Paul Wall & Slim Thugg. The project will be LeToya's first solo venture since her days as a Destiny's Child original member.

Amazon.com

Beyoncé, look out: Le Toya's in the house. This debut disc by the former Destiny's Child member could make any firmly established diva crazy with envy. Slicing the set up between traditional R&B and hip-hop-lite, the once stuck-in-the-shadows belle of Houston trades on her silky vocals and a knack for musical playfulness; hear it not only on "Torn," the radio hit that propelled this project, but also on the tracks you'd expect least. "Hey Fella," with fellow Houstonian Slim Thugg, is a dirty-flirty come on that'll nudge listeners into winking at strangers, and "Tear Da Club Up" and "Gangsta Grillz" rip into the atmosphere, determined to get Texas booties--booties from anywhere at all, really--shaking. On those two tracks and elsewhere, Le Toya enlists her street smart homeboys--Bun B, Jazze Pha, and Mike Jones--to set the appropriate vibe. But overall, this disc feels like a free-spirited invitation to check out her many musical layers. Detractors may fault Le Toya for latching on to better-known bangers and satisfaction-guaranteed production (hello, Jermaine Dupri!), but a close listen and a look at the credits crushes doubts about her credibility. Destiny may have left Le Toya behind, but the fellas from back home scooped her up; her voice and their presence will vault her to the top. --Tammy La Gorce

Prior to releasing her single "Torn" Letoya Lucket was best known as "Letoya Formerly of Destiny's Child," but with the success of her first single "Torn," Letoya stepped out of her past and into the present. "Torn" held down the number #1 spot on BET's 106 and Park for most of the summer. The second single "She Don't" is already gaining a fan base. It's a slightly laid back track and the video is currently in rotation. Her self-titled debut solo album is a solid effort, solid to the point that many of the album tracks could be singles. Stand out cuts on the album include "U Got What I Need," "So Special," and "Gangsta Grillz."

Letoya "The H Town Chick" mixes hip-hop & R&B on her debut which features cameos from some of the hottest Southern rappers in the game. Letoya's puts a spin on the 3-6 Mafia classic "Tear Da Club Up," on an all new version. Guest artists Bun B, Jazze Pha, Paul Wall, Slim Thug, Mike Jones, and Killa Kyleon. The "Torn" remix which features Mike Jones and Rick Ross is included on the album as a bonus track.

The album includes production from Just Blaze, J.R. Rotem, Brian Michael Cox, Scott Storch. A nice touch is that the album includes the lyrics to the songs. You don't see that too often anymore. Letoya did very good with her debut album. If you like the first two singles released to radio you should be pleased with the album as a whole.

Letoya Luckett, as many already know, was an original member of the now legendary group Destiny's Child. After leaving the band for various reasons, she manages to find her way back into the industry as a solo artist. Hailing from Texas, this young lady is ready to make an impact with her first official debut album.

I know everybody and their momma is sick and tired of her already overplayed, beat into the ground single TORN, but that song displays Letoya's talents of singing and songwriting. Beautifully written and well sung, the song deserved to do what it did. And I know that it will undoubtedly lead to many album sales. The question is could this young singer deliver material up to par with her first single and maintain a consistent effort on her album.

For the majority of the album LeToya Luckett delivers beautifully. The songwriting on the album is very good and LeToya has a hand in nearly every song (I didn't check every single song). The beats are ridin and don't bore the listener. She balances the album out with enough uptempo club songs to compliment the slower songs. Some may not like the club songs because the feature star Texas rappers like Bun B, Mike Jones, Paul Wall, and Slim Thug but for me they fit just fine and don't mess up the cd. Jermaine Dupri delivers again on THIS SONG with production genius and is arguably the best song on the album along with OBVIOUS, WHAT LOVE CAN DO, TORN, SHE DON'T, HEY FELLA, AND I'M GOOD. There is also a remix of Torn featuring Mike Jones and Rick Ross that comes as a bonus.

Overall, LeToya delivers one of the best R&B albums of the year and people shouldn't miss out on it. And as a bonus she put the lyrics in the book...a great thing to do. 5 stars.

LeToya, LeToya, LeToya. What more can I say? This R&B Diva has "talent" written all over her. Through these past couple of years in R&B, the music scene has been getting boring. It seems all these so called "singers" have been making teeny-bopper albums that are forgotten. Not this time. Meet LeToya Luckett, the R&B Sensation of the year. For the first in a while, I heard "Grown Folk" R&B. When I first put on LeToya's album, I was just in amazment of just the "Intro" of the album. Her vocals are so amazing its not even funny. This is serious. When "Torn", her lovelorn ballad was released back in late Febuary, I was amazed of how powerful her soprano was. I was saying to myself, "This woman is about to blow up. No wonder they kicked her out of Destiny's Child. She was the most talented child." The album is a beautiful blend of sensual Ballads, and Classic up-tempos. Take "Obvious" for example. LeToya evokes the emotion of the song effortlessly, as you can here the pain in her voice. The smooth, bedroom teaser "This Song" is a straight up classic on its own. How she blend '70s flavor with a mellow production is timeless. But, LeToya just doesn't sing all ballads, she knows how to get the club crazy too. The Houston anthem "Gangsta Grills" and the Scott Storch produced "I'm Good" have the streets on fire. Another contendor for Hip-Hop Soul while making "real" R&B music, LeToya has proved, she is an artist here to stay. There is a glycerin Ballad (U Got What I Need), a hot mid-tempo (She Don't), and a hot duet (Hey Fella w/ Slim Thug) that also Highlights the album. Anyone from 6-60 can enjoy this essential album.

There is 2 mistakes IMO tho, and that is the leftover tracks, "No More" and "Somethin' 4 Ya" not being on the album.
No More is an amazing Ballad that has stirring vocals.

With God by her side, her Destiny, has been fulfilled.

Top 5 Tracks:
1. Obvious/ Torn/ This Song
2. She Don't
3. You Got WHat I Need

i listened to this album several times before i made an opinion. first of all i think all of the girls of destineys child past present and future are beautilful (except solange, loll). what i hate is how the current members treat Beyonce as if she is God the female version. Kelly puts her own career second to "B" always complimenting her and never taking pride in her own projects.

Letoya came out in her own right on this album. she didnt try to come out like "B". Letoyas voice hasnt developed yet to its full potential i think it can be... but she definately worked with what she got. my favorite song on this album is "what love can do". all of her songs have a message and not that pop fizz "B" puts out. 10 years from now i think i can go back to this cd and still sing the lyrics to some of the songs as oppose to "B" whom i cant even figure out what the hell the song Deja Vu is about through all the over singing.
