I’ve been preaching for about a week now just how great Fantasia‘s album is and despite early predictions the former American Idol Queen pulled out on top to capture the #2 spot on Billboard this week with her 4th studio album ‘Side Effects Of You‘.
‘Side Effects Of You‘ managed to grab up (91,000) worth of album sales a slight lower number compared to a higher showing on her last album ‘Back To Me‘ which raked in 117,000 copies. Still Fantasia charted her latest album to #2 and with all of the promo she’s been doing along with her awesome live performances she did rather well if I do say so myself.

Now this is definitely not what I was expecting and to be honest I was anticipating a bit more from this collaboration but nonetheless Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliott delivered for Fantasia’s upcoming album for their record ‘Without Me’…
The song was brought to life by Fanny, Missy and a host of others background to a thumping beat and sprinkled down low with some chopped and screwed melodies for good measure. As I mentioned earlier I was looking forward to this bomb as record but I assume Fantasia toned down her voice so she wouldn’t overshadow Kelly’s (who sounds great I may add) and of course Missy brought back that old femcee kind of feel that’s clearly missing from day’s genre of hip hop. Very excited to see what the other tracks will sound like on ‘The Side Effects Of You’
Check out Fantasia’s new banger ‘Without Me’ below and purchase her new album when it drops April 23rd!

Determined to rise above and remain focused is this new album Fantasia official comeback story? Check out her interview below as well as her live in studio performances.

Fantasia‘s new album Side Effects (although delayed) is finally dropping next month and Fanny Pack unleashed the video for the lead single ‘Lose To Win’ today.
Fantasia channels her inner flapper in the Roaring 20′s inspired visual ,which is just a small portion of the Rock/Soul sound she’s going for this go around (Hot or Not?)… The song has a very positive message which I’m sure reflects her own troubled life… in love.
Not her to judge so I’ll keep right on moving.
Check out Fanny Packs new video after the jump and support ‘Side Effects’ when it becomes available in April.

Now when we last left our favorite divas they were discussing the backlash drama surrounding Mary J and the BK crispy chicken wrap…. Now that Fantasia has returned the ladies are more ruthless than ever and the showdown of good, evil and shadiness is apparent through the episode.
This has got to be one of my favorite Youtube shows around. I rarely follow anyone’s show but ‘Got 2B Real‘ is hands down hilarious. The voices are on point and who could ask for a better cast. Rumors around the water cooler is that this may be the last season but for our sake let’s pray @PattiLahelle keeps going on….
Looking for a laugh or a quick pick me up? Then look no further than ‘Got 2B Real’…
