Fantasia Gets Candid On ‘The Breakfast Club’ / Says Last Album Was “Garbage” & Reveals Joys Of Being Independent

Published: Monday 16th Sep 2019 by Sam

Fantasia is independent and loving it!

The Rock/Soul purveyor is gearing for the release of her new album ‘Sketchbook’ and has revealed she has a whole new perspective too.

Due for release on October 11th, the LP serves as her first as an indie act.

Stopping by The Breakfast Club, she waxed honest about the catalyst for her departing the major label system; that catalyst being her last studio album – a set she candidly branded as “garbage.”

Elsewhere, she opened up about why she finds it worth the hustle to be indie, how she met her husband, almost losing her life, her road to redemption, and much more.

Check out the insightful sit-down after the jump…

Great interview! Ms. Barrino always gives good talk.

    I’m glad Fanny knows the last album was trash. You cannot go from “Side Effects of You” (her best album in my opinion) to THAT! But, honestly, she has yet to excite me with this new material either…sigh.

      I cam to express this exact same sentiment. I’m not sure what her team is doing.

      Side Effects of You is great. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been very interesting since then.

    • WRTW? September 16, 2019

      Side effects was her best album. The next one with the orange cover was sub par at best. Every track on side effect was great.

    I was about to say at least she knows! It was her best album cover but the songs were not it. I really wanted that Brandy and Jazmine collar for this album though.

    “Side Effects Of You” was THAT ALBUM,great album from start to Finish.She needs to go back to working with those producers and writers.

    ‘No Time For It’ is a classic. Fanny should’ve come out with the video and worked the song while it was topping the charts. The rest of the album…left a lot to be desired. But rumor has it, she had a lot to do with that album being… ‘garbage.’

    • Oh plz September 16, 2019

      “No Time for It” is still one of my number on jams!

    Her last album was NOT garbage! It had a lot of good songs on it and she showed a different side to her musically and vocally. She’s only saying that because it wasn’t well received by her fanbase. She bragged on that album big time, now all of a sudden it’s garbage? Lol. I hate when artists talk down on their work. From the two singles she released from her upcoming album, I’d predict this album being worst than the last.

    • Deangelo September 16, 2019

      Enough already peaked higher than every song on that last album damn can you hear the new album first before down talking something smh you black people are so hateful

      • RicoNastee September 16, 2019

        What does race have to do with anything dumb ass? By the way, I complimented Fantasia’s last body of work. Out of all the negative comments on here, you responded to me. Thanks for the love.

    Awesome interview. One thing I love most about Fantasia is her transparency. She always owns her s*** and comes with an encouraging word. Even her speaking voice is soothing. I met her once in Atlanta. She was being pushed along by her team, but she made sure to speak to her fans. She is reachable, she’s humble and she’s human. For that I will always be a fan. I can’t wait to hear Sketchbook.

      Fantasia is humble,loveable and she loves the Lotd. Also, her family comes first. She is very honest. She is real to the bone. I love you Fantasia.

      • Rainy J T September 16, 2019

        Fantasia is humble,loveable and she loves the Lord. Also, her family comes first. She is very honest. She is real to the bone. I love you Fantasia.

    Flop. Jennifer Hudson is the real talent.

    • RicoNastee September 16, 2019

      Jennifer Hudson “stans” are soooo pressed on here. If she’s so successful why even waste time commenting on Fantasia’s posts? Just to be clear, Fantasia is the more successful artist. Jennifer is successful in other ventures, but Fantasia has her beat musically. Be gone!

  8. Mbeachdude September 16, 2019

    She wasn’t lying about her last album though

  9. Keith September 16, 2019

    Cute interview….Fantasia comes across as extremely likeable. Hopefully she does more interviews to promote the new record.
