The song, titled “Home,” was originally recorded for LaToya’s album Startin’ Over in 2002 and is now scheduled to go to iTunes on July 28th.

In “Home” LaToya fondly recalls childhood memories of the Jackson family which is also curious to me considering the 1991 tell-all book La Toya: Growing Up in the Jackson Family in which she bashes her father and blasts personal details of her siblings lives (the family has long denied all her allegations).

I’m going to try to remain open-minded on this. I honestly don’t think LaToya should be trying to sing anything, anymore (leave the singing to Janet).

The song, IMHO, isn’t that great either. But, hey, if it’s honestly a tribute song to her baby brother then it will be warmly received when it releases.

Go here to listen to a preview of the song.

What do you think of Ms. LaToya’s new song?

    I think the song is a wonderful gift to her brother. Janet is not the only singer in the family, I think La Toya has the right to express herself as she please.

    While I may be being unnecessarily critical about this, I see the tribute song as nothing more than one final (but pathetic) attempt to cash in on the fame, wealth, talent, and creativity of her brother. The re-issuing of the release so soon after the passing of MJ cannot even hope for being under the guise of coincidence.

    There is nothing that can be done to recapture the wonderful gift to American music and culture that was Michael Jackson, and neither Jermaine's potential solo return, the revival of the Jackson 5 (minus their star), Latoya's “tribute”, nor Joe Jackson's threats to start the musical careers of Michael's kids will ever come close to creating that magic…it will simply remind us of the loss of someone so very special.
