Exclusive: Rico Love Discusses New Fantasia Album

Published: Wednesday 30th Dec 2009 by Trent

Smash-maker Rico Love has been hard at work creating records with the likes of Kelly Rowland, Usher, Jamie Foxx and Nelly recently. However, another name has been added to that list – Fantasia. The songwriter/producer  has been hyping up the collaboration on his official Twitter account and took the time to exclusively reveal some additional information about the recording sessions That Grape Juice:

Which artists haven’t worked with yet but you would love to work with moving forward?

At first I said Fantasia; I had never worked with Fantasia but I just worked with her last weekend. After listening to this album, I would have to say Jay-Z.

Speaking of Fantasia, what can we expect from her record?

I just did one record with her that was amazing. I didn’t get the chance to hear the rest of her record but we did one record that I felt was very strong Los Da Mystro and Carlos McKinney. I’m looking forward to getting back in because I was just blown away by vocals and her ability to just capture a record in the making. It’s unbelievable.

Do you have any track titles available?

[Laughs] I don’t want to give that away.

Though not a lot to work with, the details Rico provided are enough to encourage ample speculation about the direction of Fantasia’s record. I am eager to hear what she puts forward because she one of the few R&B acts in recent times who manages to deliver unbridled performances both in the studio and one stage. 2010 is going to be a great year for music!

Are you excited for Fantasia’s new album?

    I saw Fantasia in The Color Purple, and I have been in awe ever sense. Her voice, humility, strength, and overall spirit is greatly admired by me and my family. I pray that her new CD will reflect the talent I saw on the Broadway stage.

    ^Amen brother!

    Fantasia is one of my favorites and I am patiently waiting on the new album. Fantasia is a throwback to a time with soul singers roamed the earth and were played on the radio. Fantasia, Jazmine, Ledisi, and Leela James are those types of singers for me.

    Of course I’m exited about Fantasia’s new album. She never disappoints, in the studio or on stage. Just true God given talent. If you’ve got a soul, she can reach it.

  13. Nyah December 30, 2009

  19. larrissa74 February 5, 2010

    ALL I want is NEW FANTASIA MUSIC! Bring it girl!!

  20. nicole jackson March 15, 2010

    I cant wait to see what Fantasia brings out this time I feel that it will be better then before, but if she doesn’t stop taking her money and paying for her whole families life styles she will be broke again. So it just depends on how strong she is about having her own life with her child and making a career out of singing songs.
    I understanf how the world feels she made it through a show and all it seems to me she is concerned about is when is her brothers happy or aunts and cousins not even herself.well I know when I buy the cd that it’s money going to her brothers or some family member which is sad to me.
    I hope that she can get things together for herself she has a beautiful voice and is very beatiful also.

  21. nicole jackson March 15, 2010

    I feel the comment about her having s** from the person called THEONE is very nasty to say and I feel Fantasia is a beautiful black woman naturally beautiful, so the comment of saying she not theres more people that think she is beautiful your comment is stupid and obviously if that person is talking about sucking and things that must be what they do to get to the top, Fantasia won her way to the top get it right!!!!!
