LeToya Luckett is back!
After surprising us with the release of her comeback single “Back 2 Life” the former Destiny’s Child member is teasing us with the first look at the single’s cinematic music video.
The dramatic clip showcases the singer/actress in a tumultuous relationship with her leading man, Thomas Q. Jones.
Currently prepping for the release of her new album Until Then, her first project in seven years, Luckett told PEOPLE that she “got to fall in love with myself all over again.”
“As women, we go through so many changes and on this album I let it out,” the singer says. “I talk about my growth and listening back I can hear it. I can hear that growth.”
Luckett revealed the album was created at an important time of her life, and that she hopes other women who have been in relationships can identify with.
“[It] doesn’t matter what relationship, mom to kids, to husband — this record is that ‘me time,’” she says. “That’s why I wanted to go with the record.”
Until Then is an R&B album, she says, but it has an alternative angle, as well. “I hope people can listen to the album and hear my heart,” she says. “For me, I get healing from music. I want people to experience that. It’s not about being liked, not about the approval. It’s about the experience and pouring my heart. I just want people to hear my heart and that’s it.”
Luckett spent five years working on the album, taking her time discovering the music and making sure it met her vision.
“It’s like therapy for me, going in there and writing records and pouring my heart out,” she says. “It’s something I had to learn how to do. Sometimes, it was a little too close to home, but then I was like, ‘Nah, there are real people going through that and they can relate.’”
