American Idol's Fantasia to Release Third Album this Summer
According to a press release, comedian and actor Steve Harvey helped come up with the album title, Back To Me, after interviewing the singer on his radio show.
“I’ve willingly let the world into my life through my book, the Lifetime television movie and now the VH1 reality show. Now, it’s time to go back to how things used to be when America first laid their eyes on me on American Idol. I want to focus everyone’s attention back to me and back to music that everyone can relate to and enjoy.”
Fantasia's debut album Free Yourself went platinum and featured two chart-topping hit singles, "I Believe" and "Truth Is" (the latter of which spent 14 weeks at the top of the charts). While her second album, the self-titled Fantasia was not as successful as her debut, it did produce one #1 R&B single, "When I See You" and eventually went gold. While not everything she's put out is up my alley, I'm definitely looking forward to hearing a proper return to form for this talented artist. Fantasia has no doubt done a lot of growing since she first emerged on to the scene as a mainstream artist and I honestly don't think she's reached her true hit potential.
