LeToya Luckett Unveils Cover & Tracklist Of Third LP ‘Back 2 Life’
Finally! LeToya Luckett’s first album in eight, long years drops on May 12. The former Destiny’s Child diva unveiled the cover and tracklist of Back 2 Life today (April 10), which promises to be a return to the smooth R&B of her debut LP if the Soul II Soul-sampling title track is any indication. As for the tracklist, there are a couple of surprises. 2014 single “Don’t Make Me Wait” and 2015 track “I’m Ready” didn’t make the cute. She also reunites with Ludacris on a song called “Grey.”
I’m excited for LeToya’s new era. The 36-year-old always stayed in her soulful lane, never veering into pop or opting for a hip-hop crossover. At her best (“Regret,” “Torn” and the fiery “Not Anymore”), she was a throwback to the smooth, emotional R&B sound of the ’80s and ’90s, albeit with on-trend production. Where has she been for the last decade? Well, the double-threat launched a successful acting career. Peruse her Back 2 Life tracklist and watch the very-dramatic “Back 2 Life” video below.
LeToya Luckett’s Back 2 Life tracklist:
1. I’m Ready 2. B2L 3. Show Me 4. Used To 5. Middle 6. Grey (feat. Ludacris) 7. In the Name 8. My Love 9. Worlds Apart 10. Weekend 11. Higher 12. Loving You 13. Disconnected
