Fantasia has been earning rave reviews for her fifth studio album ‘The Definition Of…’
Executive produced by the great Ron Fair, the LP strut into stores last week preceded by singles ‘No Time For It’ and ‘Sleeping With The One I Love.’
Critical acclaim, of course, is only one piece of the puzzle – and attention has turned to the project’s first week performance.
With an early estimate revealed at the top of the week, the final numbers have been tallied.
Find out what they are below…
According to Hits Daily Double, the American Idol winner will place within the top 10 of the Billboard 200.
On the pure sales front, the album shifted 28,369 units – rendering it the 3rd best selling release of the week.
With the Sales-Plus-Streaming metric factored in, the number rises to 30,666; although the stronger streaming performance of other releases sees its chart spot slide to #6.

Echoing previous sentiments, we’re enjoying ‘The Definition Of…’ and hope its gifted a long shelf-life. And by that we mean more singles (targeted to apt formats), touring, awards, and all that jazz. Fingers crossed.
