Fantasia Releases The Definition Of…
Fantasia’s latest album The Definition Of… gives us a throwback sound for those of you who enjoyed her work on Broadway in The Color Purple and After Midnight.
You can hear the Cotton Club era sound in the R. Kelly scribed “Sleeping with the One I Love,” which is heavy on horns. “Lonely Legend” also has a bluesy sound and the song plays well with Fantasia’s raspy voice.
For fans of a more contemporary R&B melody, “No Time” delivers for sure.
There were a few misses, namely “Wait for You,” which is a little too poppy for Fantasia’s classically bluesy voice, and “Roller Coasters,” which includes a rap from Aloe Blacc. But overall, I think that this is a solid R&B album that will surely please all die hard Fantasia fans.
Score: 3.8 out of 5.
