LeToya Luckett


Being recruited into Houston-originated girl group, Destiny’s Child, accompanied by Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Latavia Roberson in the early 90s by Matthew Knowles, LeToya’s sassy, sexy, and outgoing personality along with her amazing soprano voice and charisma allowed her to spawn two chart-topping solo albums both certified platinum and gold when she released her solo efforts in 2006 and 2009 after her controversial sudden departure from Destiny’s Child along with band-member, LaTavia Roberson.

After departing from the group, LeToya and LaTavia attempted to construct their own girl quartet with the help of boy-band, Jagged Edge, named Anjel. The quartet recorded a demo with over 22 tracks. However, the production company, 581 Entertainment, which handled the group collapsed and forced the group to disband.

LeToya then signed a solo contract with Capitol Records in 2003 and began working on her solo debut in 2004, which came out as Letoya, in 2006 which peaked at #1 on Billboard 200, went platinum and spawned two successful singles, “Torn,” and “She Don’t”.

Three years later in 2009, LeToya released her sophomore effort, Lady Love, which topped the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B Chart, went gold, and was accompanied by three successful singles, “Not Anymore,” “Regret,” featuring Ludacris, and “She Ain’t Got…”

Selling over 25 million records worldwide along with Destiny’s Child and from solo projects, LeToya became the second member of Destiny’s Child to spawn a platinum album (after Beyoncé).

In 2017, her comeback effort, Back 2 Life, was released. Despite having minimal success and exposure with mainstream media, critics gave the album many positive reviews crediting her vocal maturity and topics.
