"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.
In September 2006, the song was finally released in other countries all over the world, namely the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Australia and became a moderate worldwide hit.
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."
