Hot Shot: Fantasia Unveils New Album Cover?


Cop a gander at what is believed to be the album cover for ‘Bittersweet’ belle Fantasia‘s fourth album ‘Side Effects Of You’.

Led by single ‘Lose To Win’, the cover surfaces just days after disappointing news that the album – originally due in stores March 2013has been pushed to an undisclosed date.

An album described by the North Carolinian herself as a ‘rock soul’ collection reminiscent of rock icon Tina Turner‘s offerings, here’s hoping #teamFantasia are making all the right moves to ensure this album gets the promo push it truly deserves (source).

What do you think of the cover?

    NOt really feeling her anymore. Her last album, for which she won a grammy, Was great. But she did not promote it. I think she took advantage of her fans. A lot of us have moved on since then.

      How did she take advantage? Can you explain? She went on many tv shows and her first headlining tour to support the album.

      No boo you’re not spokesperson for her fans lol

      Looking forward to this album. I hear she has a few surprise features.

      This will probably be her most personal album yet. Already know she’ll slay vocally.

    I am ABSOLUTELY here for fantasia. I don’t give a s*** about her personal life, questionable fashion choices or rants. I love her because shes RAW & REAL. She’s HUMAN. She’s SENSITIVE, SPIRITUAL, EMOTIONAL and UNAPOLOGETIC. She puts her heart and soul into every track she sings. This girl is a TRUE artist. Y’all can have the gimmicks, pop records and wind machines. Give me Fantasia anyday and ill be satisfied! Plus my mother Mariah loves her! 🙂

    I am sooooo looking forward to her new era!!

    Fantasia Fantasia FANTASIA!!!!!
    I love her love the cover cant wait for the album!!!!
    Say what you want about Fantasia I’ve never been disappointed with her bodies of work. Each of her albums show growth and stamina. I infer that the reason why she has not been as successful as her counterparts is simply the color of her skin. She’s too dark her mouths too wide and her energy is unparrallel… these are all the things they want to use against Fantasia but these are the things that make her uniquely her. There will NEVER be ANOTHER Fantasia Barrino. She’s is an awesome performer and she sings her face to the floor. If youre not moved by the sound that radiates itself from her soul to her diaphram through her lungs and out her mouth, YOURE DEAF.
