‘Side Effects Of You’: Fantasia Heads Straight To #1

Published: Tuesday 23rd Apr 2013 by David

‘If I Was A Bird‘ vocalist Fantasia has shot straight to #1 with her new album ‘Side Effects Of You‘.

That is, on a digital tip.

We’ll fill you in below…

Upon its release this morning, ‘Effects’ has flown to #4 on iTunes album charts and #1 on the R&B tally, on the back of momentum generated by new single ‘Lose To Win’ and the Missy Elliott and Kelly Rowland assisted ‘Without Me‘.

On course to become only of the only R&B albums to debut within the Billboard 200’s Top 5 within the last year, the project’s speedy ascent is set to rise even further once physical copies of the album and thrown into the equation.

As it stands, the Harmony backed release is currently outselling Justin Timberlake‘s ‘The 20/20 Experience’ – which has already sold 38,709 units when 52.77% of this week’s sales are counted.

Find out how well Fantasia does when her total numbers roll in next week!

    I’m so happy for her, I plan to grab a copy from the store later on today. Been a fan since Idol she never disappoints.

    Oh Fantasia… MY QUEEN!!!!!!!

    I’ve already bought the album, digitally, but i’ll be making sure to drive to the Virgin Megastore, today at 10, to pick up a physical copy.

    The album is F****** AMAZING.

    I just hope her team do what ‘Brandy, Keyshia Cole and Monica’s’ team have failed to do.

    🙂 🙂 🙂

      • DAMIEN April 23, 2013


        I also see that the Navy are supporting ‘Queen Fanny’ on Twitter etc…

        I will always “stan” for her. Unlike BeyTHIEFce’ – I could never!!!

        🙂 🙂 🙂

    • quetta April 23, 2013

      What does beyonce have to do with this? I was going to buy one of fantasia’s albums n maybe digital but nevermind. Congrats to her though.

      • HALF AMAZIN April 23, 2013


        if that’s all it took to make you not buy the album 1. You’re an idiot 2. You probably weren’t going to buy it anyway

        Way to go. Letting Tgj comments shape your behavior. Blind sheep never cease to amaze!

    • Denise April 23, 2013

      When you close your legs to the man dem

      • Ariana Grande April 23, 2013

        Fantasia, that you? If you’re gonna come for me boo, at least make an effort, ya camel-toed vine-swinging monkey.

      • Denise April 23, 2013

        @ARIANA GRANDE No! its yo mama! I already told you to switch off the computer, turn off the lights, take your meds and go to sleep

      • DreRN April 24, 2013

        That is a good one, Denise!

  7. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) April 23, 2013

    i’m so phuckin’ happy for ha 😀

    congrats tasia.

  8. TheLove April 23, 2013

    I wish her the absolute best. She is one of the few artists who are trying to keep R&B alive without selling out to Pop. I will be buying her album this weekend. I really hope she debuts at #1. She is what R&B needs.

  9. Savannah April 23, 2013

    If her team plays their cards right singles wise I see his album selling extremely well.

    The next singles should be
    -Side Effects Of Yo (CROSSOVER)
    -Get It Right
    -If I Was A Bird.

    Gooooo Fanny!!!!!!! 🙂

    • Dev April 23, 2013

      I agree. I think that Side Effects should’ve been the first single for crossover appeal (Emile Sande is a lyrical beast) and If I Was A Bird (in the end runs Fanny sounds like Brandy, i was like wow!) and i also think that End of Me should be a single. That song has been slaying me all day!
      I put on the album and felt like i was left in a room with Zorro, Freddy Kruger, Edward Scissorhands, and Wolverine! Slayed on top of slayed!!!!!!!!!

      • Ted April 23, 2013

        Lmao not zorro hunny

      • dman April 23, 2013

        lol Right!!!

  10. quetta April 23, 2013

    I’m happy for her, she deserves it 🙂

    • HALF AMAZIN April 23, 2013

      But you just said you’re not gonna buy her album because of a comment someone else on this blog made….hmmmmm. You should keep your congratulations to yourself with that bs

      • quetta April 23, 2013

        Rofl, you mad because I’m not going to buy the album? And if you also read closely I said congrats to her the first time. I was going to buy the album because I wanted to support her but that wack ass fan wanted to diss beyonce and well, I’ll dismiss buying her album.

      • Samantha April 23, 2013

        @Quetta. Your not buying the album because someone who you dont known dissed Beyonce who you also dont know. Wait! Unless Beyonce is really your mum?

      • Navy Sailor!!! April 23, 2013

        Quetta is a dumb ass w****. She wasn’t going to buy the album anyway. Broke bum bisch 😆

    • DAMIEN April 23, 2013



      Clearly I have an EFFECT on people; you’re not going to buy the album because I dismissed your beloved fraud, BeyTHIEFce’?


      I LIVE.

      🙂 🙂 🙂

      • quetta April 23, 2013

        No because your punk gay ass is trying to start something and I’m not here for it. But go and enjoy the album.

      • DAMIEN April 23, 2013


        I see my little ‘C** Stain’ @Quetta is upset!!!

        Hush Boo… I shall lay off BeyTHIEFce’ next time…

    Looks great, sounds great and letting her music shine over her personal stuff.
    Love the maturing that seems to be happening.

    Defo getting my copy and shout out to H-money on the executive producing of this album.
    Remember Harmony always working with FDM way back when they were 2gether.
