Following numerous random digital releases, Prince fans finally get the news they’ve been waiting for. The music icon has returned to Warner Bros. Records after nearly 20 years with a new partnership for the release of unreleased material, along with a brand new album.
‘Single Ladies‘ star and superb vocalist LeToya Luckett has been having quite the year. After receiving the news that the former VH1 show will be picked up on Centric and working with some heavy hitting producers on her upcoming album, we’re expecting some great things coming from the former member of Destiny’s Child.
Covering ‘Rolling Out‘ magazine, the 33-year-old performer opens up about many of the things that we never knew. Touching on her time in Destiny’s Child, the singer states:
“A lot of people ask me about my past. It’s part of my life so I expect people to ask certain questions. Maybe they’re curious. At the end of the day, I don’t let it get me down. It was a wonderful time in my life and I’m blessed that I was able to be a part of one of the biggest girl groups known to man. I don’t take those moments for granted and I expect it. I know people are going to have those questions.”
Also taking the time to share her past insecurities, her transition into acting, and the infamous “Second Lead Vocalist” comment that’s made its way to Vine, the beautiful LeToya is a good sport about it all.
Although her album, Until…Then, has no official release date, we’re hoping that it comes ahead of the newest season of ‘Single Ladies’.

Michael Jackson’s anticipated ‘Xscape‘ album is only a month away, and more details are finally starting to emerge! Epic Records and the Estate of Michael Jackson held a small private listening session in Los Angeles last Thursday for a select group of MJ fan site editors. Of those in attendance was Matt Blank of MJWorld.net who has offered some details on the posthumous set.
Held at Jim Henson Recording Studios, John Branca, co-executor of Michael’s Estate, and L.A. Reid were there to play the album and share some insight behind making the project. Reid explained that the eight tracks selected were the best recordings he found in Michael’s archives. He disregarded any recordings that weren’t full songs, noting that if Michael recorded a whole song (compared to just a chorus for example) then that meant he liked it.
“Each song could be a dance floor filler,” says Blank “They all have very strong beats that rumble through your body. The opening song put an immediate smile on my face and raised the hair on my arms. With powerful vocals delivered by Michael throughout, his passion, his anger and his love is constantly there.”
The ‘Xscape‘ project will hit stores on May 13 in two versions. The 8 track standard which includes updated production from hit-makers Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon and John McClain, and a 17 track deluxe, which will also include the original demo versions of all the songs as well as 2 videos.
