#SPOTTED: FORMER DESTINY’S CHILD MEMBER LETOYA LUCKETT IN TORONTO FOR “SINGLE LADIES”
Before there was Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle, there was Beyoncé, Kelly, Latavia and LeToya! And if you're on the same page as me, you'd agree that Destiny's Child was at its finest with its original lineup. No, No, No, Bills Bills Bills, Say My Name, Jumpin' Jumpin' and Bug a Boo would place the Group on the map internationally in the late '90s and early '00s and although their rifts were quite public, the Music they made together more than speaks for itself.
