Latoya London Love And Life New Album


With her stunning voice and illuminating beauty, songstress LaToya London captivated audiences across the country when she delivered show-stopping performances week-after-week on the 2004 season of the hit TV show "American Idol." Now, for her millions of loyal fans, the long wait for the singer's debut CD is finally over. LaToya will release Love & Life, a collection of 14 songs that touches the worlds of pop, urban, and hip-hop, on September 20.
Proving that's she's as smart as she is talented, London co-wrote several songs on the CD, including the album's explosive first single "Appreciate." A hip-hop ode to the opposite sex, this youthful, cross-over bound track features the rap talent of Black Thought from "The Roots." The single is in stores this August.
One listen to the amazing breadth Love & Life reveals a remarkably assured new artist who has only begun to show the world what she is made of. Given LaToya's powerful and stunning vocal talent, the debut is loaded with love songs ("Every Part of Me," "State of My Heart," "Meet Me Halfway," and more) written and produced by industry powerhouses like Narada Michael Walden (Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey), Barry J. Eastmond (Aretha Franklin and Anita Baker) and David Foster (Barbra Streisand and Quincy Jones).
With Love and Life, however, LaToya sets out to prove that she is more than just a master of delivering show-stopping ballads. Along with the album's first single, the CD features the hip hop-spiked, "None-a-Whatcha-Do (Bling)," and the steamy, eye-brow-raising "Scandalous." For the super-spicy "Anything," LaToya runs down a list of things she will do for her man to keep him faithful?over a seductive sound bed dripping in deep bass, jazzy electric piano, and teasing guitar licks?that is earlobe-scorching.
