    On August 25th, LeToya will release her second solo album, Lady Love. The disc is a ballad-centric compilation that stays true to LeToya's traditional R&B-ballad signature style as evidenced on her self-titled first album (LeToya), while displaying growth both musically and (in particular) vocally. Although the few uptempos on the record ("She Ain't Got...", "Take Away Love", "After Party", "Love Rollercoaster") lack the Houston chopped/screwed dirty hip hop flavour of the club songs on her debut, they veer more towards a poppier, guitar-fused sound. The bonus track "Swagger" is a nod to her previous uptempos, featuring Bun B, Killa Kyleon & ex Slim Thug, and while LeToya isn't on the song enough for it to warrant being a proper track on the album (thus making sense why it's relegated to 'bonus' status), it is a nice throwback to bangers such as "Gangsta Grillz" and "Tear Da Club Up" that were highlights on her first disc. …
