    New Album, “The Definition Of,” drops June 10th.

    Singles “Ugly” and “So Blue” have been released so far.

    “Ugly” and “So Blue” sound decent. I’m sure Fantasia will score some R&B nominations.

    “So Blue” is pretty decent.

    Fantasia’s album is very “Pitchfork-y”. I wonder if this album will have some experimental tracks on it. Fantasia tends to play with different sounds anyway.

    “So Blue” is ok. “Ugly” is boring. Fantasia frustrates me because she’s such a dynamic performer and vocalist, but that energy rarely translates to her recorded material. I want a gritty, soulful, gospel album from her. I’m tired of the generic songs with blah productions. I want her to let loose and give it to us. “Free Yourself” was a good start.

    I don’t think Fantasia has ever put out a generic album before. I’m actually not sure what “generic” would be for her. A gritty, soulful album from her sounds like it would be too typical for a singing like her and would be boxing her because she’s black and has a big voice. A person with a big voice doesn’t always have to sing soul or those old school numbers. She’s not old. I think Fantasia was on the right track with her last album… going with an urban contemporary sound vs. the traditional R&B sound that most R&B singers these days are known for. I also think Fantasia’s album tracks are typically better than her actual singles.

    Fantasia’s first two albums were pretty good. Her last two, tho, have veered into basic urban contemporary territory. She’s better than that. I don’t think she needs to always sing soul or old school numbers. However, she has a naturally soulful voice that I feel doesn’t get put to good use when she sings forgettable material like “Ugly.” I do agree that her album tracks tend to be better than her actual singles.

    Her new material is underwhelming but that album cover is amazing. She rarely disappoints performance or music wise.

    I must be alone because although I found “So Blue” a little underwhelming, “Ugly” is my favourite song at the moment. Lyrically and vocally its flawless and there’s a little country feel to it which is really nice. I have never actually bought and listened to one of her albums fully but this one I think will change that.

    Fantasia’s albums are pretty good. I liked her first two albums the most.

    Fantasia album rankings:

    1) Free Yourself
    2) Fantasia
    3) Side Effects of You
    4) Back To Me

    The promo for this album is terrible. We haven’t even got a single music video yet. What’s going on?
