    "Obvious" is the third single to be released from the American R&B singer LeToya's debut album LeToya. According to Billboard, due to LeToya's popularity and feedback from radio, the single had a 96% chance of becoming a hit, but due to the fusing of Capitol Records and Virgin Records, all funding for the album were frozen until the completion of the merger.
