|LeToya singles chronology|
"Torn" is the first official single (second overall) from American R&B singer LeToya's debut album LeToya which was released in March 2006 and soon became a hit, having a high airplay, just missing out the top ten on the U.S. Hot 100 Airplay charts at number eleven. "Torn" became a hit on the U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, peaking at number two. It also entered the top twenty on the Rhythmic Top 40 and Adult R&B charts.
The song is about the protagonist being "torn" between staying with or leaving her lover (played in the music video by Will Demps). The song contains a musical sample of The Stylistics's 1971 classic "You Are Everything."
The official remix is known as the "So So Def Remix" featuring guest appearances from rappers Mike Jones and Rick Ross and production from Jermaine Dupri. The album version is also slightly different from the single version and there is also a version with rapper Short Dogg and Dave Young, co-writer of Torn, singing along with LeToya.
The music clip is featured as an enhanced video on the European edition and the Japanese Special edition of the album LeToya.
