Fantasia is hot on the promo trail to ensure her October 11th-due new album, ‘Sketchbook,’ sees her name penciled atop R&B charts upon its release.

Most recently taking to New York to visit The Breakfast Club to dish on it being her first effort as an independent artist and so much more (click here if you missed it), Fannie preceded the appearance with a slew of interviews to discuss the LP and what fans can expect from it.  Already letting them down with news Jazmine Sullivan and Brandy will not appear (as we previously reported), the 35-year-old is opting to focus on the upside by sharing the positive aspects of this era of her musical journey.

She also spoke about her career at large which includes a desire to return to acting.  Once touted as a name on the shortlist of actresses set to portray Aretha Franklin in her biopic (alongside Halle Berry and others), Fannie was later selected to bring the life story of Mahalia Jackson to screens before that opportunity fell apart as well.

Now, the ‘Free Yourself’ singer is looking to free her schedule for a call that may see her flexing her acting chops in Patti Labelle‘s biopic or even a revisit to the Broadway stage.  Hear her dish on this and much more inside:
