Fantasia celebrates the release of her new album ‘Sketchbook’ with the unwrapping of the video for ‘Bad Girl.’

Flaunting another side to artistry  – both lyrically and visually – the release forms part of what the singer says is a project that salutes her past and embraces the freshness of her future.

Speaking with That Grape Juice about her approach to ‘Sketchbook,’ she explained:

“It’s a soup, a gumbo of all my other albums.  The things people loved about [my first album] ‘Free Yourself’ and all the other records put into one.  I took it back to my ‘American Idol’ days.  So, just like back on that show we did all kinds of genres, people can expect to hear all kinds of genres – Pop, R&B, Soul, and more.”

It’s been over a week since a Dallas court handed down a guilty verdict to former policewoman Amber Guyger after she was tried for the murder of her neighbor, an unarmed Black man named Botham Jean, but that certainly hasn’t slowed chatter around the case.  Sentenced to 10 years in prison for the act, several aspects of the proceeding – including the length of her sentence (given the severity of the crime) – have been met with harsh criticism from legal analysts, celebrities, and more.

While the judge presiding over the case, the honorable Tammy Kemp, has been on a media blitz to justify her ‘inappropriate’ and ‘unethical’ courtroom behavior (click here to read more), other key players – including Jean’s family lawyer S. Lee Merritt – is fielding criticism on his clients’ behalf for the flack they’ve received for their courtroom actions (see:  forgiving Guyger, etc.).

After catching wind of a disparaging Twitter comment from Grammy nominated rapper Nicki Minaj after the death of star witness Joshua Brown, Merritt took to Instagram (October 10) to not only clap back but also praise the femcee’s ‘more active’ musical counterparts for their role in the fight for justice.
