New Song: Fantasia – ‘Sleeping With The One I Love’

Fantasia has never played by the rules and isn’t about to start doing so now.

The soul-filled songbird has hatched new single ‘Sleeping With The One I Love’ – the launch release from her fifth studio album ‘The Definition Of…’ [due July 29th].

Boasting lines such as “the one I love is good to me…but he just ain’t good enough,” this racy number is sure to set tongues wagging.

Listen below…

Yes, yes, and yes!

The rich, creamy production paired with the daringly dangerous lyrics makes this a compelling listen – and easily the best we’ve heard from the LP thus far.

Some may raise eyebrows at the subject matter, but we feel it refreshing in that it’s not the “same ole” love song every R&B act seems keen on re-singing. Critics should also remember that not every track is or need be autobiographical. In the songbook of time, some of the best additions have been cuts that take the listener into a world far removed from their own. Something ‘Sleeping’ manages to do in stellar fashion.

    It’s so hard to comment on this site with ALL these ads preventing people to comment LOL hehe.

    “Sleeping With The One I Love” I automatically thought of her sleeping with that man who was with somebody else….. but ok hit me with the SLAYAGE FANTASIA!!

    • ?+✈=? May 26, 2016

      It should’ve been called “Sleeping with someone else’s man”

      • Tiffany May 27, 2016

        JUST LIKE ALICIA KEYS

        Actually you stand corrected. It’s aptly title to reflect a woman’s who is a relationship with two men.

    Fanny ALWAYS gets it right. I remember lose to win came out and I cried every time I heard that song because I felt every last word…this song has that effect now this is the proper way to start a campaign. Welcome back fanny.

  3. Cough Cough May 26, 2016

  4. DeDot May 26, 2016

  5. Surprise..(DEC 2013) May 26, 2016

    The song is good..but it could have so much better, if it was not all over the place with the random pauses. GOOD EFFORT THO!!! HER VOICE IS HEAVEN..

    • Josh May 27, 2016

      No the song is fine. R. Kelly did it again. He crafted another powerful musical gem. I love it because it has a James Browns feel .

  6. Gee May 26, 2016

    This right here A1 this is true Fanny right here and I love it.

  7. Stephon Jackson May 26, 2016

      • Black power May 26, 2016

        ****DOING better than that stillborn Jackie!

  10. Truth May 26, 2016

    I am living for her voice on this song. I have been waiting for her to wreck a song in the studio the way she does live she is a beast!!!! I hope this is the direction she’s going in now it suits her and might be a surprise crossover

  11. Kai May 26, 2016

    This gives me Beggin and Pleadin vibes. ….
    I love her tho

    • Yes girl May 26, 2016

      No, beggin and pleading had Fantasia written all over it. From the song, to the video.

    • Credits May 26, 2016

      the Brandy influence is real.

      • Josh May 27, 2016

        Brandy? I get more of a James Brown feel. I don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. Fantasia even named James Brown as an inspiration for her new album.

  12. #JACKIE May 26, 2016

    Monica ain’t doing it, that’s for damn sure. Slay fanny

  13. Black power May 26, 2016

    Now I loveeeeee me some Tasia but this whole Era has been a NO for me… Nothing that was wowed me or got me up out of my seat ?

  14. brazio May 26, 2016

    I like this, it does give me begging and pleading

    • Josh May 27, 2016

      This song is nothing like Begging and Pleading. I get more of a James Brown vibe. Fantasia even said she was musically channeling James Brown on this song.

  15. Dossome May 26, 2016

    Yaaaas… LOVE ITTTTTT!!!!!

    WHERE TF IS truth???? He used to stan so hard for Tasia(when not dragging Onika) lol

  20. Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely May 27, 2016

    Heard this song three days ago and it awesome

  21. Casual May 28, 2016

    I was hoping this song wouldn’t get single treatment. It’s a good track, but it’s not going to be a hit. It will do okay at Adult Urban Radio, but it will have limited success at hip hop oriented stations, and it has no crossover appeal. And FWIW, Aretha Franklin would have killed this in the late 60s.

  22. Brotha1461 May 28, 2016

    Anytime s song does not work for the people that follow her, she does it live and kills it.

  23. Sheena May 28, 2016

    listening to this song makes me realize that R&B needs FANTASIA!!! and every other song that’s out on radio sounds like bullcrap compared to this, RADIO\MAINSTREAM NEVER APPRECIATES ARTIST LIKE FANTASIA OR JAZMINE SULLIVAN, oh how the world is missing out
