Fantasia Debuts New Song ‘Looking For You’ Live On BET [Performance]

Published: Tuesday 20th Aug 2019 by Sam

Fantasia is back and blazing!

The American Idol graduate has signalled her return with the announcement of new album ‘Sketchbook,’ a like-titled tour, and the upcoming release of single ‘PTSD.’

Ahead of all, though, she took to the stage on BET’s Sunday Best, to deliver the live debut of new song ‘Looking For You.’

Check out the rousing performance after the jump…

This gave all all sorts of the feels.

The stripped back nature of the arrangement allowed the beauty of the uplifting lyrics to shine through luminously. Vocally, as ever, Ms. Barrino nailed it!

We can’t wait for the release of ‘Sketchbook.’

    Fantasia’s music is always meaningful, and her performances soul-stirring. Her last album, whilst not as “soulful” as her previous offerings was criminally underrated.

    Tasia is a jewel and future R&B legend. Let’s give Fanny her things NOW!!!! #CantWait4Sketchbook

      I knew this stalker was coming on every post real pressed mad b**** lol 😂 well somebody gotta hate and shade must be a f** lol

      • Banks no tyra August 20, 2019

        Ms DeAngelo, let me know when fantasia is on the cover of vogue, at the met gala, and she gets to perform her own song at the Grammys and be in the company and space as beyonce, Rihanna, Alicia Keys. Ciara, Jennifer Hudson, nicki Minaj, Janelle monae, and cardi B, they will never let her in the popular girls playground

    • Blaque August 20, 2019

      Go to sleep!!! You don’t know anything about singers this woman is a singer.. Nevermind have a good day..

    • 2bad2bme August 20, 2019

      Nobody is forcing you Pop microwave music lovers to like her. All you weirdos care about is charts and sales. That’s why ya’ll have no substance in your lives because you like TRASH!

    • Lose2Win August 20, 2019

      Sign me up for the Chitlin Circuit as well if I could win American Idol, win a grammy, get #1 hits, consistently sell out shows, get platinum certifications and critical acclaim. Stay mad dusty. Fanny is winning! #TEAMTASIA

      • Banks no tyra August 20, 2019

        When has fantasia ever had a sold out show, you exaggerating now, last time she had a billboard hot 100 hit was when American idol aired

      • Lose2Win August 20, 2019

        Who’s exaggerating? Baby, Fantasia has a mature audience who will purchase tickets whenever she drops them! I attended her Christmas at Midnight tour at a 4000+ seat theater, and she sold out every venue singing Christmas songs and Standards. Her singles always chart in the top 20 Region of the R&B charts (HER AUDIENCE). Her fanbase is loyal, not fickle like these replaceable pop girls.

    • Deangelo August 20, 2019

      A pressed ass B**** who’s always bothered 😕 has all the time in the world to sit here and go on every post and comment I know you don’t have a life if you don’t like her fine who are you convincing us or yourself we are here for the talent if you don’t like it Free-yourself in my Fantasia voice now who gone check me I’ll wait

      • Banks no tyra August 20, 2019

        I never liked fantasia since she slept with my cousin husband and had a child by him, tell her free herself from that , f u k n s l u t box, tell her to read that

      • Lose2Win August 20, 2019

        That sounds like a personal problem. Fantasia has been married for 5 years to a man who worships the ground she walks on. As for your cousin, I hope she isn’t still with her d***-dipping husband and I bet it wasn’t the first time. Seek help.

    • Shamari DeVoe’s tube top August 20, 2019

      Fantasia minds her business and bothers no one – but still keeps you b****** pressed somehow. Kim Burrell, is that you?

    • Tyty August 20, 2019

      And then you complain that RnB is dead or that it’s being whitewashed. But when they are there talented singers churning out quality music you say disgusting things like that? I must be in the twilight zone Cause I don’t understand.

    • Pepe August 20, 2019

      Magazine covers don’t equate to greatness hunny. Especially one’s that are barely in print today *sips*. There are a lot of untalented artists who have entire magazine spreads but so what? Fantasia has a fanbase and a demand, hence her selling out every show she does. And before your hating ass says it, she doesn’t tour nightclubs or lounges. True talent always prevails and Fantasia has done so without selling her soul. Bye hater!!!!

      • Bree August 20, 2019

        I know he don’t know what he talking about when mentioned Jennifer who can’t sell out a show nor sell albums.. he’s mad because HIS cousin was sleeping around while he wasn’t married? Fantasia has upgraded and found somebody that’s better and look better lol He needs to sit his clown ass down

      • Lose2Win August 20, 2019

        Okurrr like we all haven’t done things we weren’t proud of. Fantasia owned her s***, moved on and leveled up for herself and her kids. She’s never in drama and you never hear anyone speak ill of her unless they’re a hater like Banks no Tyra. Fantasia murders the stage then goes home to her FAMILY. I hate to do this but By the way, didn’t Punk call JHud a deadbeat mom and sued her for child support?

    Beautiful song!

  7. Pepe August 20, 2019

    Loved this and love Fanny’s versatility. Not many can do it.

  8. meeee August 20, 2019

    beautiful. i just haven’t heard anything to keep the album on the charts more than a couple of weeks… i think she’s keeping the bran jaz duet in her bag for that tho

    • dfdfdf August 20, 2019

      Fantasia new single is top 2 on the charts boo so i dont know what ur talking about

      • Boss Up August 20, 2019

        #2 on the Adult R&B airplay chart that is 😬Where is she on Billboard 100?? Or even Billboard Hip/Hop R&B👀👀 those are the only charts that count.

  9. busy bee August 20, 2019

    That song was whack. Fantasia is proof that you need machine behind you. She been slipping since going indie but she looks cute.

    • Boss Up August 20, 2019

      Yea, this independent route is a struggle for her but she does look the BEST she has ever nowadays. Single came out in May. Still no album release date. Hmmm🤔

    • Banks no tyra August 20, 2019

      Fantasia is whack

  10. stan August 20, 2019

    love the song!

  11. Gregory Moore August 20, 2019

    Love this song, outstanding.

  12. Tino August 20, 2019

    She should be one of the biggest artist of our generation but she just doesn’t have the right skin color.

    • Apostle Denise Clark-Bradford August 20, 2019

      She didn’t make the right career moves. She’s still maintaining and seeing success in her own right. I’m a fan simply because she Is saved, sanctified and filled with Gods precious Holy Ghost. Just because of that, she will forever be covered in Jesus name!!

  13. Bathsheba Fish August 20, 2019

    Fabulous. She looks great and sounds even better. I love Fantasia and am so proud of her, great!!!

  14. Cassandra Lloyd August 21, 2019

    I love you Fantasia. You are truly amazing.
