After teasing us with the cover art, LeToya Luckett’s brand new single, “Back 2 Life,” has arrived in full. On the mid-tempo, laid-back groove, which samples Soul II Soul’s classic “Back to Life (However Do You Want Me),” the former Destiny’s Child member tackles lost love.
“Maybe we’ll survive,” sings Luckett. “Maybe it’s a lie / To keep our love alive / But I know you want to ride / So, I gotta get back to life / Back to reality.”
The honest lyrics may be about Luckett’s personal life; Back in August (2016), she divorced husband Rob Hillman after only two months of marriage.
“Back 2 Life” follows last year’s release, “Don’t Make Me Wait,” featuring T.I., and will appear on Luckett’s upcoming album, Until Then.
Currently, you can watch Luckett in a recurring role on FOX TV’s ‘Rosewood’ along side Morris Chestnut. She is also set to play Dionne Warwick in a biopic based on her autobiography, ‘My Life, As I See It.’
