Fantasia Eyes Summer For New Single / Fall For Album

Published: Thursday 14th Jun 2012 by Sam

The last two years have been all sorts of tumultuous for Grammy winner Fantasia Barrino.

However, as seems to be the case between each of her releases, the vocal powerhouse is hoping to confine the drama to the past as she gears up to unleash new material.

Find out when the American Idol graduate plans to unwrap her new gems after the jump…

During a new interview with Go Memphis, the mother of two revealed that she’s putting the finishing touches to her fourth studio album with hitmakers Chuck Harmony and Jerry Wonder.  She confirms that the set is currently slated for release at the end of the year, with its lead single due in the Summer.

Speaking on her return to the charts, the singer said:

“Of course, the pressure is always on to give the fans more of Fantasia and to allow them to see my growth. This time around, I have more creative input and am writing a lot. I think everyone will be quite pleased with where I am going this go-’round.

However, the 27 year old was swift to add that music -regardless of when its due- takes a backseat to motherhood:

“I’ve learned how to balance my time between being a single working mother and an entertainer. My children mean the world to me, and that’s what helps me to make my career my No. 2 priority after being a mother first.”

************

We, quite literally, cannot wait for Ms. Barrino’s return! Regardless of her trials and trouble, she remains one the industry’s most gifted talents. As such, we’re ready for her to shine all over again.

    fanta looks so good in that picture. Why can’t she always look like that? Even if you gain weight you can look good. On American Idol she made me throw up my dinner.

  17. TheOuyonB June 14, 2012

    Love Fantasia.. She definitely needs a stylist and a trainer before she comes out, because she has been looking like trash lately. I don’t like that for her. She better be getting it together.

  18. MISHKA June 14, 2012

    Despite what’s going on in her private life, I just love the fact that she’s still have a real career.

  19. Malcolm June 20, 2012

    Yea Fantasia can’t wait…. And Jennifer Hudson is working on an album. You guys should do another song together

  20. chris June 23, 2012

    Great news- does anyone know why the official website isn’t being updated? That Grape Juice has more info than ANYONE else- please get them to be real time/.up to date?!

    Thanks for all the hard work.

  21. Joshua July 4, 2012

    I love if Fantasia do a duet with Eric Benet on her new album. That would be fire. Fantasia’s voice combine with Eric’s

  22. Joshua July 4, 2012

    I love Fantasia. I think she is one of the artists that is keeping R&B and soul music. She will never be consider a cookie cutter singer.

    Fantasia, Eric Benet, Jennifer Hudson, Ledisi, Jill Scott, Monica, Anthony Hamilton, Mary J. Blige are some of the realest artists you can find. We gotta support artists who are staying true to real music.
