Fantasia embraces the cinematic in the video for new single ‘Sleeping With The One I Love.’
Directed by Derek Blanks, the clip is the first visual to be serviced from the American Idol’s fifth studio album ‘The Definition Of…’
Famed for her charismatic performance style, this effort sees Ms. Barrino flex her Tony nominated acting muscles.
For, she takes on not one, two, nor three roles in the vid. She performs four.
Watch the story unfold below…
A refreshing detour from the norm – both for Fantasia and more broadly for R&B artists. Too often acts in the genre fall victim to serving up the same ole video by the numbers. Here, there’s a marked effort to engage the viewer with a compelling narrative.
It goes to show, creativity doesn’t always require the biggest budget.
‘The Definition Of…’ arrives in stores, via RCA Records, on July 29th.
