Rap-Up TV: LeToya Luckett Shares Reaction to Beyoncé’s Billboard Speech

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from LeToya Luckett. Rap-Up TV caught up with the Destiny’s Child alum at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards last week. Since parting ways with Capitol Records, the Houston gal is in the early stages of recording her third album and offered a hint of what we can expect.

“It’s gonna be R&B, but it’s gonna be on a whole ‘nother level,” teased LeToya, who acts alongside Taraji P. Henson in the upcoming film From the Rough and appears on the HBO series “Treme.”

She also recalled her teary-eyed reaction when former groupmate Beyoncé acknowledged her while accepting the Millennium Award at the Billboard Music Awards. “She said it and tears just started rolling down my eyes,” said LeToya. “I’m so blessed to even say that I was once a part of that group. She’s such an amazing person. I learned so much from even being around her, so thank you B.”

During the interview, LeToya overheard Oakland hip-hop legend Too $hort say that he’d like to collaborate with her, and she was more than flattered. They sealed the deal with a pinky swear, so you can hold her to it.
