Soul maven, Fantasia‘s transformation from her early days as a promising starlet is nothing less than extraordinary. Her evolution is akin to a caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a butterfly. On her fifth studio album, The Definition Of…, Fanny still rocks our souls with candid lyrics and transcendent soundscapes. But, this time around, she’s elevated to another level. This is her grand opus.
“I hope to just bless somebody through music,” she says, and indeed, Fantasia is blessing us by showing that triumph trumps drama. She is raw and transparent, unafraid to reveal her reality. The Definition Of… is a complementary fusion of R&B, pop, jazz, rock and country. It features production by industry greats such as Ron Fair, R. Kelly, Brian Kennedy, Neff-U and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon.
