Latoya London is the NEW Kimberley Locke

Idol 3 finalist Latoya London just released her first single, "Appreciate." And Billboard magazine thinks she's a star:



The most important things to know about LaToya London are that she has been singing since she was 7 and that in the years since, this soulful songstress has figured out what it takes to be a major force in a business that is starved for new talent. (The last thing you need to know is that London was the third runner-up on season three of "American Idol.") Debut single "Appreciate" showcases a newly burgeoning breed of female R&B artists whose greatest ability is to sing; image, beauty and star presence are evident, too, but substance leads the list. London adds a bit of spice with a rap from the Roots' Black Thought, but the emphasis is on grade-A vocals, a chorus hook you'll carry around all day long, lush harmonies and a pleasantly supportive lyrical call-out to men.

Congrats Latoya! I knew you could do it!
