    Her initial Destiny forgotten, sultry songstress LeToya Luckett reenters the game like a boss.

    KING is certain of two things. One: J.R.’s mysterious death on Dynasty was an inside job. Two: Beyonce Knowles was the knockout of Destiny’s Child’s original quartet. Still, she fought tooth-and-nail for the title, as the lovely LeToya Luckett was equally beautylicious. While most D.C. defectors (Double-L departed in 2000) has had trouble returning to the platinum-brick road, 24-year-old Luckett, who has a thing for boys who talk country slang, was committed to establishing her own identity after her separation from B and Kells. “Being solo puts all the pressure on you,” she says with a wink that would buckle the most hardened queer eye. With a self-titled album on Noontime/Capitol Records featuring production heavyweights Just Blaze, Jazze Pha, Scott Storch and Mike City, this DC refugee’s pipes should be able to handle the stress.

    Commenting on the her unfulfilled Destiny:

    “It’s a delicate situation ‘cause of the settlement agreement that we have. There’s only so much I can say. A lot of people don’t know my story. Of course I would love to go into every interview and just spill my guts and tell the truth, but at the same time, it’s a situation where it was five years ago, so why are we still talking about it?”

    Admitting a penchant for thug love:

    “It’s always good to keep a thug in your life. You know the one that got your back that’s gonna be there. That’s always good.”

    I am glad that LeToya is back in the music industry. To be honest with you I have watched in the music industry since 1998 when you were with Destiny’s Child and I have always thought that you were the best looking out of all of them including Beyonce. You are doing better by herself.

    It is good to see another young, smart and very talented woman reign supreme. Letoya is a knockout vocally and the girl has major star power. Stay down to earth and nevr get the big head b/c real stars don’t have to. Let the fans and the industry sing your praises. You don’t have to say a word; your talent speaks for itself. Letoya the comeback kid!!! I like that.

    For many that had a chance to meet Destiny’s Child -the earliest version- Latoya was obviously the the most photogenic… and the group’s hottest chick. Her gleaming smile and glamorous looks always stole the spot in captivating style… even without being the most Booty-licious. In hindsight… she was ALWAYS a threat to “plan – Bouncey”. It’s no wonder for many that stepping on Latoya’s potential, back in the day, served as a perfect “Bouncey (I Mean) Beyonce Springboard”. Donevan K.C.

    I’m very proud of you, girl. Your personality and style puts Texas on the map in positive way. It really shows how you were raised so pat “Momma Luckett” on the back because she raised a girl that us as fans can really relate to. Someone we feel that we really know. Please don’t change. As long as you stay just as you are you will always be successful. Lots of times the stars forget who made them who they are. If the fans don’t buy their albums, go to there concerts, support them they wouldn’t be stars. Sometimes they forget that. If you never have a #1 single, if you never make another album, if you lose you singing voice tomorrow I’ll always be a fan because it was you being so down to earth that made us love you and your music so much. You didn’t forget the fans so the fans won’t forget you. God bless and keep doing your thang!!!!!!

    NoTimeToGaze says:
    I remember loving the image of DC because they were all beautiful, and I was happy that the light skinned chick was not the only pretty one (no I am not hating, I have the exact skin tone as Beyonce). However, my personal fav. was Letoya. Why are the editors of these magazines so subjective. Give praise when praise is due. Don’t pretend to big up Letoya if all you are going to do is put her down by stating that her beauty is less than Beyonce’s. Is this why so many people want envision their children to be light skinned with curly hair-remember the type of girl that Jay-Z could not get. What are we all saying about our standard of Beauty ?
