"Not Anymore" is the first single from LeToya Luckett's second solo album, Lady Love (2009). It was written by Ne-Yo and produced by Bei Maejor. It was digitally released on February 3, 2009.

Music video[edit]

The video was shot in Los Angeles on February 13, 2009.[3] The mini-movie was directed by Bryan Barber. It is set in the 1960s, but has a modern feel similar to Barber’s video for Christina Aguilera's "Ain't No Other Man."

The video begins on an old revival tour bus, travels to a backstage area, and ends on an “American Bandstand”-like stage. LeToya plays Dorothy Campbell, or "Dot", who is the newest addition to a Motown record label and is burning up the charts, eventually moving on from the man who broke her heart and reveling in the ultimate revenge—-success. Her boyfriend is played by Lance Gross, who cheats on Dot with one of her background singers.

The video is split into 3 sections/time periods - 1961, 1964 and 1968. The sets, costumes and props change accordingly in each section to show the trends, fashions and styles of those particular years.

The video was released on March 10, 2009. As of May 5, 2009 the video has peaked at number #3 on 106 & Park.
