Sampling the Soul II Soul classic of the same name for her chorus, Letoya Luckett makes her way back to the music scene after 2014’s Don’t Make Me Wait.
Having split from her husband earlier this year, the songstress seems to be channeling her own emotions as she sings about getting back to herself after a relationship that just didn’t work out despite the fact that they both tried to save it. Anyone who loved the Destiny’s Child alum’s second album, Lady Love, will recognize the progression of this track. The production is reflective of some of the best tracks on that album (Regret, Tears); slow but with a little bit of bump in the background. The lyrics are honest in a way that has worked for Luckett in the past, giving concrete images and examples that are relatable to the listeners. The vocals are good and show improvement over where the singer was when she released Torn with a little more oomph and gravitas to her tone. It’s probably not the best choice for a buzz single if she’s going for attention for an album, but it’s a good song and deserves some spins.
No word as to whether this is just a one off or not, but the single is available to purchase from all digital outlets.
