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.
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.
