I’m here for the powerhouse gospel infused vocals of Fantasia and I’m hype that despite her personal problems is finally releasing a new album. ‘Side Effects Of You’ is set to drop April 23rd and features appearances from Kelly Rowland, Missy Elliott, Big K.R.I.T. I remember Fanny saying the album was mixture of Rock and Soul and cited Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin as some of her influences throughout the project.
Definitely excited for the album (which saw a few minor setbacks) be given the light of day. Hopefully people who enjoy REAL music will go out and support her latest project. Heaven knows that the former American Idol has been through a lot but thankfully she has finally bounced back, ready to ignite old fans and newbies like never before.
Really want to see what her collaboration with Kelly and Missy will sound like and I’m hearing musical newcomer Emeli Sandé contributed to Fantasia’s album as well.
