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

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.

Kudos!

‘The Definition Of…’ arrives in stores, via RCA Records, on July 29th.

    Fantasia voice beat out almost everyone in the industry but she’s not big. She doesn’t push herself.

    • Josh June 28, 2016

      One thing I love about Fantasia is that she is not trying to chase trends and do what’s hot at the moment unlike some artists. She is authentic.

    This song is Hot and the video as well!! It’s going to be a future hit!! Fantasia is the reigning “Princess of sou” hands down and she shoulda performed at the BET AWARDS last night instead of Jhud BET know they coulda let her in on that Prince tribute or let her sing her own new single they won’t hold tasia back though…She wins she was trending damn near all night and dint even perform

    • Caleb June 27, 2016

      Da fuq? Replaced Jhud??! You couldn’t find anyone else for her to replace? Jhud was the best performance of the night and slayed that prince tribute.

    Fantasia has turned out to be one of the FEW relevant r and b voices of her generation. I’m here for it.!

  6. A&R June 27, 2016

    This is who and what Fantasia needs to be. This is only the start of her realizing who she is. Plz stay her and go up and beyond. My gawd… This woman is talented.

  7. Dev June 27, 2016

    Im always here for fantasia and i always will be. All of her albums have been great and none have disappointed (me) so I’m hoping this one continues the trend. Roll on July 27th.
    Now that the video is released i’m now going to play the song via video and streaming so she gets some hits.

  8. toeknee June 27, 2016

    I absolutely loveeeeee this song. Her voice is Godly. I really wish she is more main stream tho, like get the right recognition she needs because the world is missing out on an exceptionally talented lady.

  9. Josh June 27, 2016

    I love the video. It shows a totally different side of Fantasia. It reminds me of Cell Block Tango from the musical Chicago. I see Fantasia going back to her Broadway roots in this video.

  10. dfdf June 27, 2016

    fantasia slayed this live in concert and the video is hot to everybody make sure you request this song on the radio and buy it on itunes support real music and im p*** BET didnt let her perform that was stupid

  11. What Now June 27, 2016

    Tasia came thru, but I too wish she performed. She looked good though.

    Amazing music video

  13. JOHNVIDAL June 28, 2016

    From all these black R&B girls Fantasia is the one who has served the best quality during the last years. No doubt. Good albums, creative artistry and a voice with a lot of personality (well, aside from Janelle Monae, who is just genious on all fronts, that lady is too talented, definitely too talented for nowadays charts and masses sadly). And I´m glad it´s been recognized. She has one some very deserved grammys in R&B categories if I remember correctly.
