Lady Love’s First Week Sales

Hits Daily Double have come in with their first weeks sales projections for Letoya Luckett’s new “Lady Love” album- and it’s not looking very good. According to HDD “Lady Love” will move between 25,000-30,000 copies- less than half of what her debut album “Letoya” moved. The singer also will not take the #1 spot as she did with her debut. However, she will land somewhere in the top 10.

  1. well this is not a surprise to me I was trying to like her new song “not anymore” but I don’t but I still like Letoya and my favorint song from her is “Torn”

  2. I cannot believe i bought that TRASH,I was going to support her and then when i played that Sappy stuff, the same thing she did with her first album….SMH i only like TWO songs….SMH U got my money, i could have wrote the tracklisting down and downloaded it from LimeWire….SMH

    SMH, u talking about a departure. And i know Beyonce name is coming in the post, i might as well say it. I swear i though i heard Beyonce Diva And Beyonce’s Upgrade u on the album and i got some Ciara felling on it tp…SMH but congrats, u wont get my money again, idc how good the next album is…..SMH Toya, Just SMH

  3. That cd should have been shelved. There are no good records on it regardless of how beautiful, sweet and talented Toya is. Then again, the record label didn’t give us the push we needed to fall in love with it. Its all good. But, I’ll skip this one. I loved the last cd.

  4. Her album hasn’t even been out 4 a week yet, it came out yesterday and it’s #1 on itunes… So if got 25,000-30,000 in 1 day that’s pretty good, and yes i agree her album could have been better… She should have added some more uptempo tracks because the album is a lil slow, and could have been a lil more creative and song about something different instead of having the same concept of her last debute album & singing break up songs, dont get me wrong i like some of her music but I prefer beyonce” I Am…Sasha Fierce” over Letoya’s ” Lady Love”.

  5. D_Weezy, you are a bit confused. The album didn’t sell that amount in a day (yesterday). It is projected to sell that amount over the next week.

    Yesterday it probably sold about 2,000-5,000 copies all together.

  6. Letoya herself knew she didn’t get the publicity as other artist do, but she’s pushing forward. I do believe the record will sell as she gets out there more. To call the album trash is a bit over the top to me, but if you’re not mature or a professional self confident person then maybe you won’t feel the maturity of the album. You all lack the intelligence to appreciate good quality black women. You’re so use to what white america sees as great and beautiful. I truly appreciate the R & B album. She’s truly steped it up in my book without taking showing her butt or dying her hair blonde.

  7. i don’t care what anyone say…i love letoya’s “lady love” cd, and i hope it goes platnum.

    What in gods name are u talking about, why does EVERYTHING have to be White and Black..SMH we dont live in White America, we live in America, its according on how u live u live ur life and what u do in it. Stop making excuses like blaming the white man. Latoya’s album in my opinion is utter trash, take that or leave it. White America…SMH, save the sob story for next Beyonce Post..SMH

  9. Another Thing, I know everything comes back to Beyonce

    “She’s truly steped it up in my book without taking showing her butt or dying her hair blonde.”

    And thats why she only sold 30,000 copies, and dying the hair blonde aas nothing to do with it, if i might add

  10. see people are talking about beyonce again in somebody else’s post and people say she’s irrelevant well things like this shows she’s not. o yea and is beyonce the only artist with blond hair???

  11. The album has been out for all of 2 days we or nobody else knows what it is going to sell. The album is a solid R&B album and Letoya stepped up her game. If she made an album full of fast songs that don’t sound good then people would be tripping on that. She made an album that truly complements her voice and style. People keep saying they don’t know who she is musically, well she is showing you. Ballads and mid tempo songs are obviously her strengths so why not showcase that. She has plenty of time to branch out even more which I am sure she will do. Her publicity is picking up which will help sales. She will be on 106 & Park Thursday and she is also doing a Labor Day tour with Avant in September and her movie comes out in October. Also on the 25th in Houston it was declared Letoya Luckett Day by the Mayor due to her contribution to the city, that was televised. So she is getting seen and you can’t knock her for doing all that without much help from her label.

  12. I think Letoya will be #1 for R&B and in the top 10 for all genres.

  13. I don’t understand what record labels do these days. They should support their artists when they release the album. Janet Jackson, even the veteran, was ignored by the record label. What the heck?

  14. ^^^^^ LOL that’s why Janet Jackson hopped that sinking ship real quick (IDJ), her career is in her own hands now, Janet calls all the shots now so look out for her in 2010.

  15. I bought the cd i did my part shame on people for not supporting real music when it’s given!

  16. I hope people who haven’t heard or bought Letoya’s cd, do so and review it for themselves! This is a situation that only GOD will work out and perfect. It’s obvious that so many forces are working against her and people behind the scenes, willing to assist. But, at the end of the day, GOD will prevail and not man. Don’t mean to go religious, but it’s what I do when weapons are formed against me.

    Regardless of going multi-platinum, Letoya wakes up everyday with a full schedule and get to do what she loves for a living and can eat well, travel the world and use her celebrity to help others, I look forward when I can do my thing to the limit!

    Go Letoya…love your CD!!!

  17. Its sad that people is stuck on 1 artist Toya cd is actually worth buying and im not a huge fan but its a nice record.

  18. The record label not pushing it for her.I wont buy it. I like Not Anymore and Torn regardless. Not Anymore ringtone is for my daughters dad.

  19. Im going to get my copy today i do not care what anybody say about her.

  20. LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    AT THE BEYAWNSAY STANS ON THE ATTACK

    REALITY CHECK: LADY LOVE THE SOUND AND QUALITY, PRODUCTION TRUMPS THAT

    GHETTO-NESS DIVA, EGO, UPGRAE YOU. THERE IS NO COMPARISON. Beyawnsay’s music is kiddie hop, immature, and empty. That’s why she keeps releasing singles trying to make something stick, Talk about flop???? Look at Beyawnsay this era.

    YOU STANS BETTER WORRY ABOUT KEEPING WASHED UP BOREYAWNSAY RELEVANT.

    SHE HAS NOT EVOLVED LYRICALLY OR VOCALLY. SHE SOUNDS EXACTLY THE SAME.

    WANNA ANALYZE SALES??????

    WHY HASN’T BEYAWNSAY OUTSOLD HER FIRST AND SECOND CDS??? WHY? HER FAN BASE HAS BEEN ERODED BEECAUSE O FTHE SAME OLE JUVENILE KIDDIE HOP GIMMICKY TRACK.

    SHE RELEASED A DOUBLE DISC WITH HOPES AND DREAMS OF SELLING A MILLION LMFAOOOO
    SHE REALLY THINK SHE’S THE END ALL IN THE INDUSTRY.

    SHE HAS AND WILL NEVER SELL DIAMOND!!!!
    COMPARE HER TO BRITNEY, AND JANET, AND MADONNA FOR THAT MATTER AND SHE WILL BE IN A DISTANT 4TH PLACE ON THAT LIST.

    LEAVE LETOYA ALONE. SHE WORKED HARD TO PROMOTE THE ALBUM AND SAID SHE IS PROUD OF HER EFFORT.

    MEANWHILE BEYAWNSAY IS RELEASING YET ANOTHER CHILDISH SINGLE OFF I AM SUCH A FLOP CD. IF YOU THINK SELLING 2/4 MILLION COPIES IN THE UNITED STATES IS SUCCESSFUL FOR BEYAWNSAY THINK AGAIN.

    Her tour didn’t gross, she lost money reducing ticket prices to fill arenas. She is not a diva, just a wanna be

    When Beyawnsay outsells Rihanna’s 3rd GGGB album then you can have something to say, until then

    Rihanna is the baddest chickin the game, already an icon.

    LeToya is not chasing anybody, she is and always will be doing what she loves, that’s making great R&B music!!!!

  21. If you know Capitol’s history

    they don’t promote/back any of their Urban artists.

    That’s no reason not to buy music if you like it.

    Educate yourselves!!! and think for yourself!

  22. yeah i was gonna buy but then i saw that the whole thing is posted on her myspace page, so i would rather just listen to it there. plus the cd is missing a couple of tracks. I knew she wasn’t going to do very well, her audience just really isn’t big enough, and she barely had any promotion this time. I don’t know what they were thinking, she is not a huge star so they should have known she would need more promotion. and the album is just full of ballads, that’s never a good thing…unless you are keyshia cole i guess. but hopefully her label won’t drop her and they’ll give her another chance. i don’t know if she will have the platinum success like she did last time, its just not good enough. but she can sing though

  23. I think the blogs have destroyed it for most black artisist. I can’t imagine that this blogs are black owned the way they dog their own out. The only aritist that gets some kind of praise is well we know who. I just think black blogs are out to destroy all black entertainers.

  24. It’s a solid and potentially classic R&B album. Some of you are so use to junk and crap rammed down your throats you don’t know quality music when you hear it.

    What’s really interesting is on other websites, everyone is praising Lady Love and claimed to have bought it.

    Quiet a few here either trash it, compare her to you know who and/or talk about ONE freaking song!!!!

    Lady Love has 15 SONGS!!!! Your god Bey only gave you what 11 songs and had the audacity to make it a double CD. And yall complaining. JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL!!!!!!!!!!

  25. I luv LADY LOVE cd….people r on here fuckin lying about buying the cd and not liking it, their ass didn’t even buy it but automatically assume that it’s stupid because SHE IS NO BEYONCE’!!!!!!!!! That cd is betta than her 1st cd the only difference is that her singles chosen 4 this cd were not the right ones that should have been chosen

  26. The first album was pretty good. She came weak with this one. When I think of her and her music I think of Keri Hilson. No I’m not saying anyone is copying anyone, I’m just saying they have about the same genre. Her singles are not hot. I like you Letoya, and I wish you the best, but I know you could’ve done better.

  27. @ Bee
    The owner of the blog is not dogging this artist. She simply reported the record sales projections. Some of those posting comments are dogging out the artist.

    As Rockon suggested, THINK FOR YOURSELF. Someone commented on another thread that anyone can preview her whole CD on her Myspace page. Go take a listen. If you like what you here, then buy the CD. I liked the first video relaesed for the CD but did not care for the second one. If her CD is more like the first track, then it probably won’t appeal to those accustomed to hiphop.

    I did not care for her first CD but I think she is talented and can sing.

  28. She needed much more and better publicity. 30k in a week is ok but over a few weeks is bad considering how talented she is.

  29. Hope her sales pick up!

    Quoting Rockon:

    When Beyawnsay outsells Rihanna’s 3rd GGGB album then you can have something to say, until then

    OK

    LOL, It tookk Rihanna TWO years and a re-release to sell 2.4 mill in the USA TWO years! Beyonce sold 2.4 mill in the USA in JUST 10 months! You think about that!LOL Checkmate!

  30. letoya has proven once again to be a talented artist and song writer. i like her music. i wish her continued success, because she deserves it. also, for the haters out there who are talking negative, all it does is make her stronger.

  31. People let’s be mature here. If sum1 doesn’t like a cd that isn’t Lauryn’ Hill’s Miseducation, THriller or a few others, they are not crazy or hater. So to go to the extreme of getting mad cuz they don’t like is sad, but amusing. Personally, i didn’t buy it, its not personal, i really haven’t brought any cds in the past years, except few exceptions. Toya is cool, can definitely blow, but the singles i heard were not poppin in my OPINION, not like what she came out her 1st cd.

  32. I wish LeToya well, but the real news is Ledisi’s album scoring #14 on pop and #1 R&B, per Billboard albums.

    REJOICE!
    Now THAT’S a bonafide soulsinger with substance. I think that the tide has turned and the true Keepers Of The Gate are rising up to take back what the perpetrators and poseurs failed to accomplish(Maxwell, Chico DeBarge, Whitney, etc.)

    Alicia Keys was just the beginning….I think we’re in for a real backlash against the empty state of stale autotuned and canned studio-enhanced tracks, y’all.

  33. Meaning, Maxwell, Chico and Whitney are back, of course.

    Support REAL R&B.

  34. @ROCKON

    You do know that music sales are at their lowest ever.

    They were really high at around 2000, but ever since 2003/4 they have been droppping and dropping.

    and i wonder why? (sarcasm)

    LIMEWIRE etc lol.

    So Beyonce being able to maintain relatively high record sales is an achievement in its own.

    And you’re saying that Beyonce is washed up and irrelevant?

    ASHANTI is irrelevant lol, no one talks about her.

    and im sure your CAPS display about Beyonce shows who you think is relevant…

    just sayin..

    n lol.
    those ‘childish’ songs u mentioned like ‘diva’ ‘ego’ ‘upgrade u’.

    Well DUH! thats their purpose. I am… was the serious side of the album.

    and Sasha Fierce was the fun side. When you don’t have to think. you can just dance and have a good time. lol

  35. That’s too bad. I bought the album and I think it’s solid sophomore effort. I like it.

  36. banjiboy- word Chico back?? i hear that- yeah i hope a backlask come soon, i can’t even turn on the radio anymore.

  37. yeah, ruserious. His new cd, Addiction, is already out.

    Needless to say, it’s the dopeness.

    Spread the word!

  38. I thought this post was about leto…well nevermind we know what its really about. If there was a post about cookies somewhow she would get thrown in it and dragged through the dirt.

  39. LOL so funny my facebook status was just talkin’ about you haters!! Can’t live with em, can’t live without em! The album is hot, it might not be for everyone like most music… she’s improved musically, vocally and as an artist. If you haven’t got your listen of LADY LOVE, I recommend you do. Its for the GROWN & SEXY, not all you underage BEYONCE FAN haters lol! They are two different artist, stop trying to compare them.

  40. @ EBZ

    I agree, I think they should’ve chose better singles too. Not Anymore was okay, I like it, but they just wasn’t strong. I think they took too long to put something out, but the actual release date seems rushed. Letoya is too good for this kind of thing.

  41. @ LMAO you must realize that Toya doesn’t have any control over the songs that go on her album and nor does she have control over the promotion side ..If she wants more press the cost will come out of her pocket..Im sure her adviser told her not to spend extra money on promotions its a recession and marketing and promotions aren’t doing good for most companies any justices ..A friend once told me the music industry is there for you to venture into other markets , all the sales go to the big wigs ..The sore purpose is to make a few bucks off of you than throw you to the wolves ..Good luck Toya

  42. @ BanjiBoi
    Speaking of somewhat oldies but goodies from back in the day…Jo and Al B Sure also released CDs this year. When I went to Amazon looking for Maxwell’s latest back in July, I was surprised at the number of real RnB artist from not too long ago coming with new music this year.

  43. LeToya’s label released too close to Whitney’s album. Everyone is saving their money for the latter. LOL!

  44. @Pearlsrevealed

    Yeah, there’s hope for the world, afterall, huh?

    🙂

    And for the record, I’d also like to see some new, fresh, younger artists putting out great soul/r&b.

  45. I didn’t buy the CD, but I do wish her well in the future.

  46. Toya has a beautiful voice and she is a good artist she it her cd she gonna make it the way she want, at least she did not swagga jack as for beyounce she only famous for her diffrent types of weaves lets see if america will still love her if she rock her real shyt thats why she never graduated

  47. Listen to Lady Love again…

    That is a HOT cd.

    Hating is not even attractive!

  48. I love the album personally the songs lryically has meaning. for the haters stop comparing her to beyonce that is why B hasnt came out with any songs that actually means and says something- Cause ya r up her a** Letoya has courage for coming back into this industry after being let go from the group and she did it; you cant take talent away. When you down its people like you who gives strength to make you go on. You’re not a true artist or leader until you have lost it makes you stronger when you always have yes in your life like Beyonce you dont know what struggle is. Thats y all her songs are about her body or her ego seriously Letoya actually wrote her songs not a little ad lib and then she get credit as a writer like Beyonce but Letoya Luckett is real and I love her stay strong!!! God Bless

  49. Lady Love is a good cd and an upgrade from her last album. She did wonderful and it sound good so get with the program. LeToya is a rising icon and nothing is going to stop that!!!!!!!

  50. I love LeToya new cd!!! It is great and classic r&b music! I can listen to the entire cd without skipping songs..Her sales will pick up but you have to realize that a lot of cheap people will download it from limewire or something..But the CD is hottt and I will definitely be bumping it for a while….So haters stop hating because she is doing her thang
