New Song: Fantasia – ‘If I Was A Bird’

Published: Tuesday 5th Mar 2013 by Sam

With the release of Fantasia‘s comeback album ‘Side Effects Of You’ drawing nearer, the American Idol alum is wasting no time giving fans a teaser-taste of what to expect from the set.

Fresh from unwrapping the video for the project’s lead single ‘Lose To Win’, the 28-year-old stopped by WHUR radio in Washington today to premiere buzz cut ‘If I Was A Bird’.

Without any further adieu, then, listen to Fantasia soar after the jump…

{SONG REMOVED AS REQUESTED}

Refreshing!

While not quite boasting the “Rock Soul” sound Ms. Barrino has been touting, the song certainly makes for a solid listen – especially lyrically.

All too often the topic of love is musically addressed in the same formulaic manner, yet here a simple but powerful metaphor is used to relay how joyous, yet restrictive the “L” word can be. The overall message is cemented with a potent, yet understated vocal performance from Fantasia.

Is ‘Bird’ single worthy? Not for us. However, it does what it says on the tin and has us buzz-ing even more for its housing album. Roll on April 23rd!

    Why is her voice so annoying?
    Her voice sounds like a raspy, hoarse chipmunk.

      Take yo hating ass somewhere else with that….

      • NinaSarefina March 5, 2013

        PREACHHHHH !

    • ras March 5, 2013

      you just dont know talent when you see been brain wash by the pop world

      • Eye Candy March 5, 2013

        How do you know which artists I listen too? I rarely listen to the mainstream radio nowadays.
        My taste in music has changed tremendously since a few years ago. This is why I go on music blogs, to find new music by talented artists that the radio won’t play.

    • Monstarebel March 5, 2013

      i agree girl those vocals are a mess they never amazed me…

      • CHUDDS March 5, 2013

        Her vocals are never a mess boo. She gets a lil churchy somethings (screaming), but she has never given a s***** performance. *looks at your avi* tread lightly babe, tread lightly….

      • CHUDDS March 5, 2013

        *sometimes

      • Eye Candy March 5, 2013

        Yass!
        At least someone agrees. Her voice is too over the top. Everbody that says I’m hating are acting like they will buy the single anyways.
        Smh

      • Monstarebel March 5, 2013

        @eyecandy yes girl her vocals can be very overbearing at times i don’t like all that screaming & yelling s***

    • ras March 5, 2013

      fantasia is so phenomenal i just dont understand why people always hatting on her i dont get it

    • TJ March 5, 2013

      I am sure someone has something to say about the way your voice sounds or better yet, the way you look.

      • Eye Candy March 5, 2013

        My voice? Well I never claimed to be a singer, nor do I ever want to be one so that is irrelevant.
        As for my looks, that is perfectly fine because even some of the prettiest women in the world are called ugly because others may not see the beauty.

  2. BEYSUS OVER JESUS March 5, 2013

    B**** YOU LOOK LIKE A BIRD WITH YOUR GHETTO NASTY ILLITERATE RATCHET ASS…DIDN’T BOTHER TO LISTEN TO THIS SONG, IT SOUNDS LIKE A FLOP.

    • Eye Candy March 5, 2013

      J. Hudson>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Floptasia

      • CHUDDS March 5, 2013

        Girl how are you gonna say you don’t like all that yelling and screaming when thats ALL J. Hud does? F*** outta here b****.

      • Eye Candy March 5, 2013

        J. Hudson doesn’t have a raspy chipmunk voice though.

      • The Truth March 5, 2013

        Actually J.Hudson has flopped more than Fantasia. Do your research boo lol.

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

        Your kidn right? Jhud??

  4. CHUDDS March 5, 2013

    I love it! Smooth beat, great lyrics and stellar constrained vocals from Ms Barrino. I, too am curious to hear the Rock-Soul tracks….

  5. Nick March 5, 2013

    EYE CANDY GO SAT DOWN please…, Fantasia has an amazing beautiful unique voice & I LOVE ALL OF HER MUSIC-this was great, it’s just sad real R&B/ROCK SOUL won’t get the love it deserves on the charts though…. I CANT WAIT FOR IT BE RELEASED!!

    • Eye Candy March 5, 2013

      I respect your opinion but her voice is loud, annoying, churchy, & over bearing.
      I guess one person’s musical trash is another person’s musical treasure.

      • CHUDDS March 5, 2013

        You obviously came in here to bash her without even listening to the music queen. Be gone!

  6. Ehhh Don’t worry about it March 5, 2013

    I love the song….But this should not be a single! The masses are too dumb to understand it. Fantasia needs something catchy! I want her to release “without me” I feel like that song is a HIT!

  7. Ehhh Don’t worry about it March 5, 2013

    Alright! After listening to this song again and really getting into it! I FREAKING Love it! I’m actually mad that this snippet is so short! Just when I’m going up, it ends. She’s just riding the beat!

  8. Cream March 5, 2013

    she is soooo Fugly!!!! gross!!!

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

      Stop talkn bout yo momma like that

  9. King B>Rihanna March 5, 2013

    I like it..I wanted the production to be more aggressive i.e the beat to boom a little harder.

    I see people can’t appreciate raw gritty vocals.

  10. Music March 5, 2013

    Great Song! As someone else stated, the majority of radio listeners these days are so used to stuff being dumbed down that they won’t accept/appreciate the true meaning behind this song. I can already see jokes about the song coming from common folk who don’t look deeper into the meanings of songs.

    It would be a great song for the album though and to perform at her concerts for the fans.

  23. Mother Mariah March 6, 2013

    Lmaoooo! Jennifer Hudson is a flop musically. Her songs don’t chart and her albums flop! She won an Oscar and still doesn’t have a platinum album under her belt. And her sympathy Grammy was undeserved. Fantasia is a true artist and singer who actually has versatility. Jennifer and Keyshia(LMAO) have none.
