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

Published: Tuesday 4th Dec 2012 by Sam

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 glad your back with your s*** avi.

    • Sabian December 4, 2012

      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.

      • skintightjeans December 5, 2012

        Sabian, suck my plastic d****.

  5. CHUDDS December 4, 2012

    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!

      YAAAAAASSSSS B**** YEEEEESSSSS!!

  9. Hush December 4, 2012

    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.

    • CHUDDS December 4, 2012

      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.

      • truth(HUN-TAE that B**** nicki re up FL-LOOOOOPED like hell…u mad? BRWAAAAAHAHAHAHLOLOLOLOLOL chile) December 4, 2012

        SAY IT HUN SAY IT!!

  11. LittleJohnny December 4, 2012

    Fantasia, we are ready! It seems like the least talented individuals release music every year while the irreplaceable ones like Fantasia wait so long. Fantasia is our generations best performer and it will be interesting and delightful to hear new material.

    • truth(HUN-TAE that B**** nicki re up FL-LOOOOOPED like hell…u mad? BRWAAAAAHAHAHAHLOLOLOLOLOL chile) December 4, 2012

      IM SOOOOO READY chile!

  12. Anti_Intellect (@Anti_Intellect) December 4, 2012

    I am so here for this. If anyone has the pipes and the swag to pull off contemporary Rock/Soul it is Fantasia. She can definitely give us some Anna Mae Bullock realness! Come on Tasia Mae! Take us to another level!

    • truth(HUN-TAE that B**** nicki re up FL-LOOOOOPED like hell…u mad? BRWAAAAAHAHAHAHLOLOLOLOLOL chile) December 4, 2012

      Do it Tasia!!

    • LittleJohnny December 5, 2012

      Yep, and she can do it without it feeling contrived. Fantasia is that BEAST!!!

  13. Courtney December 4, 2012

    she’s not the only star releasing in March so aren’t Celine Dion & Mariah Carey. if her album is released in the same week either of theirs is she’s gonna be over shadowed

    • CHUDDS December 4, 2012

      Who cares? Not like Fantasia is gonna sell 300k in the first week anyway.

      • truth(HUN-TAE that B**** nicki re up FL-LOOOOOPED like hell…u mad? BRWAAAAAHAHAHAHLOLOLOLOLOL chile) December 5, 2012

  15. The Truth December 4, 2012

    This could work for her especially if she goes for more like an Amy Winehouse production style. With good promotion this era could be really good for her.

    • truth(HUN-TAE that B**** nicki re up FL-LOOOOOPED like hell…u mad? BRWAAAAAHAHAHAHLOLOLOLOLOL chile) December 5, 2012

      Your right…thank for your comment too. I think thats a good idea

  19. igotwhtuwnt December 4, 2012

  21. IDK December 5, 2012

    I like Fantasia A LOT!!!!!! I saw on her twitter some months back that she was in the studio with missy and lil kim. I hope that goes for 1 of the picks to keep on this album. But I’m kinda nervous about the rock thing she’s about to do tho. #Rooting for you tasia!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. ras December 5, 2012
