Fantasia Goes Rock Soul On New Album

01/10/2013
.
(Radio.com) One-time American Idol Fantasia is focusing on her upcoming album of "rock-soul" and newly released single, "Lose to Win."

"I feel like this project is my baby," she said. "They allowed me to write… I always wanted to do something different. I love R&B but for the level I'm at now, I wanted to do something like Rock-Soul. When you hear Rock Soul, you think of Tina Turner. You think of James Brown. I wanted so bad to do something like that."

The first single from the album, "Lose to Win" hit iTunes on Tuesday (January 8). She explained what it was about the song that caught her ear.

"I was blown alway with the feel," she said. "[It's like] The Commodores' 'Night shift.' When I heard the track, I was done. When I heard the lyrics of the song, it wasn't just about a relationship it was about my whole career. There have been ups and downs." more on this story
