Fantasia’s new album The Definition Of… is set to release this Friday, and I am super excited. She is one of the most talented people on the face of this Earth, and I’m ecstatic about her new music. This week we’re going to celebrate her!
She’s already released 4 songs from the album. Her first release was the upbeat “No Time For It.” She released an audio version of the song, and then followed it up with an acoustic version. Her vocals soar on both.
The next song she released was the unexpected country song “Ugly.” I want to say it’s my favorite thus far. Her versatility shines on this song. She performed it on American Idol soon after its release, and it was every bit of magic one would expect.
Her super smooth song “So Blue” was released next. It also brought forth the cover art for the album. It took a few plays for me to get the song, but it has definitely grown on me. This song also showcases her versatility.
The last song that Fantasia released was her incredible single “Sleeping With The One I Love.” The song has James Brown and Etta James written all over it. I just want to throw Grammys at her! Her live performance of the song is every freaking thing, and the video is amazing!
As aforementioned, this week we will be celebrating Fantasia every day. We’re dubbing it “#TasiaWeek.” So check back tomorrow as we continue the celebration!
