Fantasia is kicking the year off right. On Friday, January 27th she premiered a video for her song “When I Met You” off of her 2016 release The Definition Of…
The video is directed by Derek Blanks who also worked with Fantasia on her last video for “Sleeping With The One I Love.” It stars @ben2bizzy, RHOA‘s Sheree Whitfield’s son Kairo Whitfield, Fantasia, her daughter Zion Barrino and her husband Kendall Taylor.
Her daughter does an incredible job. The concept of the video is great. It really stays central to the sentiment of the song.
The video starting off in the 90s begins with Zion, and it transitions to Fantasia, but they’re playing one character. The guy their character is dating is no good. Fantasia ends up finding him flirting with another woman, and eventually ends up with guy she belongs with.
“When I Met You” speaks to the thought that the bad relationships we go through prepare us for the right one.
Fantasia is also prepping to go on tour with Charlie Wilson and Johnny Gill. The tour kicks off February 8th in Norfolk, Virginia. After this tour, Fantasia said she plans on taking a break from touring to make more music.
Fantasia filmed a video for her country ballad Ugly in 2016, so hopefully that video will be released too.
“When I Met You” is available for download on digital musical outlets.
