She’s Back: Fantasia Readies New Album For March 2013

fantasia 4 e1281781597677 Shes Back: Fantasia Readies New Album For March 2013

Have you ever had an album on repeat for years? If so, you and all of us here at That Grape Juice have something in common. For, Fantasia‘s third album ‘Back To Me’ has been in rotation since she blessed the charts with it back in 2010.

Fast forward almost three years and the American Idol alum is gearing up for the release of her fourth album, which she has revealed will boast a “Rock-ier” sound.

Peep her interview with our good friends over at Hip Hollywood below…

Very interesting! Longtime readers will note that Fantasia alluded to such a sound change  during our interview with her early last year.

Needless to say, we can’t wait to hear what she’s been cooking in the studio. Too many are quick to write her off, yet she clearly has a firm grasp on the sound she wants to dabble in. The Tina Turner example made for a great point of reference – as they both boast a  brand of soulfulness that lends itself well to other genres.

March couldn’t come sooner. Until it does, we’ll hit replay on ‘Move On Me’

      I’m sorry, but no one who calls themselves “skintightjeans” has any taste in music anyway. So null and void on what you have to say. And if you’re a dude, you’re q**** as f***. If you’re a female, you probably can’t even fit skintight jeans. Go listen to your faggoty ass pop music that no one over 12 or is heterosexual likes.

    Hold up. You b****** will NOT shade Fantasia! She may be ghetto as HELL, but the b**** can sing and perform! I went to a Fantasia show two years ago with my sister (she dragged me there), and my life was changed!!! She is the TRUE soul singer of our generation. The way she connects to the audience is mind-blowing, and don’t get me started on that down home SANGIN! Her last album was magical from start to finish, and I’m looking forward to her next!!! Go Fanny b****! I’m loving the cleaned up image too!

    This makes me laugh. Who doe she plan on selling this “Rock-ier” album to? Pop and rock fans have zero use for her, and by and large don’t even know who she is. And if she comes out with some “rock-ier” sounding music, her long time R&B/Soul fans and urban radio would reject it. She’s kidding no one. This is just like when Kesha said she was gonna come out with a rock album. Please. At best one or two album tracks might have a water down guitar riff somewhere in the middle, but that’ll be about it. Her label probably wouldn’t even let her deviate from what’s she’s expected to do.

      Honey, her fans will support because she’s still gonna be a soul singer at the end of the day. She is basically gonna be doing rock-tinged SOUL music a la Tina Turner. Probably a mixture of Miguel/Tina Turner with her signature swag. You can’t say s*** until you hear what she’s coming with boo.
