LeToya Luckett may not be able to escape the Destiny’s Child tag attached to her name, but she can kick the pestering rumors to the curb.
In the video for her current single, “Not Anymore,” the Houston native stars as a 60s Motown singer who leaves her no-good man behind. Back in March when the video premiered, many blogs compared her high-fashion gear to threads worn by Beyoncé’s baby sis, Solange.
“I heard [those comparisons] before, but for one, my video was directed by Bryan Barber,” LeToya tells Rap-Up.com. “It was his concept. I can’t do anything but give that credit to him when it comes to the direction of the video.”
As far as the similarities go, LeToya doesn’t fall victim to the hype. “I feel like the media and everyone else are always going to make comparisons, especially when it comes to a sensitive subject like anything that has to do with me and Destiny’s Child or a family member of Destiny’s Child,” the songstress states. “It’s really not that serious. First of all, I’ve got nothing but love for Solange. Every time we see each other we’re cool. I think she is an amazing artist and creative in everything she does. It’s just talk.”
LeToya also revealed that she will be calling on a yet-to-be-named Houston rapper to spit a verse on the “Not Anymore” remix.
