Kelly Rowland is preparing to release her second solo album My Story... Kelly Rowland on July 11th. Letoya Luckett, one of the dethrowned orginal members of Destiny's Child, is scheduled to release her debut cd, LeToya, on July 18th. Ladies and gentleman, welcome to R&B Celebrity Deathmatch!
SOHH Soulful has already given it's opinion of Kelly's as yet unfinished album.
The other day I got a chance to really listen LeToya Luckett's new single "Torn" from her upcoming cd. It's kinda decent. I don't think that every first release should be a club banger but I do believe it should be sticky enough to stand it's ground. Since LeToya is releasing a ballad I assume she is going with the 'I can sing too' blueprint given the vocal prowess of her once arch enemy Beyonce.
I mention Kelly and LeToya in the same vein because although Ms. Rowland has the Destiny's Child legacy working for her, LeToya seems to be one of her competitors on the charts since she clearly not bringing it on the level of her former groupmates. Christina Milian is getting more shine in that arena.
Listen to LeToya here.
