The former Destiny’s Child songstress unveiled the long-awaited project’s sexy cover art, which finds her lounging in a chair with her hands on her head and her legs crossed.
The 13-song tracklisting only features one guest, Ludacris, who appears on “Grey.” Otherwise, the LP finds the recently-divorced singer reflecting on “My Love,” being “Worlds Apart,” and feeling “Disconnected.” Back 2 Life marks Luckett’s return from an eight-year hiatus.
We’re quick to blame others a lot of times in those situations but this time I wanted to do some self-reflecting. Remember the old-school days when Michael Jackson would come out with a video? And it would be a movie, not just a regular music video. This was a story that needed to be told; something that I had gone through and knew people could relate to.“I’ve been running around like a chicken with its head cut off,” says Le Toya Luckett of being back on the promotional circuit after a seven-year hiatus from music.“But I’ve missed being on the road, so this is fun for me.”The Grammy Award-winning original member of Destiny’s Child and actress just released her third studio album ’s Adult R&B Songs tally with the title track. 6 on the chart, the song is paving the way for the singer-songwriter’s newly released second single “Used To.” Both singles’ accompanying videos are the initial chapters of a three-part movie mini-series that has garnered more than 4 million views on You Tube. Luckett’s self-described “unintentional hiatus” was actually more a matter of simultaneously balancing her burgeoning career as an actress.“That’s the one thing I’ve learned about myself over these last seven years.That’s made it easier for me to walk in my truth.”Take a look at some of the other takeaways of our chat with Luckett below.Since we first got confirmation of the album late last year, it has undergone a name change and is now entitled like the single of the same name.
