Fantasia Back In the Booth

Biography

To Fantasia, life and music can never be separated. So when the 26-year-old, eight-time Grammy nominee titled her third album Back to Me, she was making her current goals, both creative and personal, crystal clear.

“When I was on American Idol,” she says, “people fell in love with the young lady who took her shoes off to come onstage, who spoke her mind and didn't ... Read more in Amazon's Fantasia Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Few would accuse Fantasia of a reluctance to abide by the wisdom that what you've got, you should flaunt, and the vocal gusto she slathers over her full-length debut gets partial credit for earning--and keeping--your attention. To a greater extent, though, the high-wattage help heaped over the Idol 3 champ and Patti LaBelle-sound-alike makes the disc dazzle. In addition to pitch-ins from Missy Elliott, who produced and co-wrote three tracks and busts out a two-snaps-up rhyme on "Selfish (I Want U 2 Myself)," Jazze Pha duets on the ultra-mod "Don't Act Right" and Jermaine Dupri wrote and produced the smolderer "Got Me Waiting." Surprisingly, though, it's not those tracks or even the Idol-propelled cover of the Gershwins' "Summertime" that will stick with listeners most. Instead, first single "Truth Is," a sweet, old-school R&B lament directed toward a lost love, and "Baby Mama," a spirited shout-out to hard-working single mothers, snare standout status with their from-the-gut authenticity. Keeping it real is what won Fantasia the hearts of millions on TV, and despite Free Yourself's likable slickness, it convinces that--hot commodity or no--she's not about to forget it. -Tammy La Gorce

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded expectations November 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
There are some very cool, slick sounds on this cd. Fantasia's voice on AI got a little screechy to me on "I Believe" but not here. "I Believe" is incredibly passionate to me. Her soulfulness is really showcased with some fantastic background sounds from the more urban "Ain't Gonna Beg," and "Free Yourself" and back to a bayou-jazz sound from "Summertime," "You Were Always on My Mind" (a simple piano, drums, some sax and her voice are lovely together and little more is necessary) and of course her rendition of "I Believe."

The better tracks are funky - "Truth is," "It's All Good" and "Selfish" are catchy and have a more traditional R&B sound as does "Baby Mama".

Overall this cd is surprisingly really good to me. I kept thinking about Ruben Studdard's first full length cd and how I was expecting something more from him like what we'd heard on AI and it turned out to be so urban it overshadowed the real joy and R&B smoothness of his voice to me. So I guess my expectations weren't very high for this cd because I thought the same thing might happen. Too much in-your-face urban clouds the universally appealing talent by these young hopeful singers. However, these tracks by Fantasia made a far more positive impression on me than I thought they would because they are very contemporary but not so urban sleek they slide off the plate.

Princess of Soul is right!!! 'Free Yourself' is phenomenal.

This woman has proven to be over the top; when she sings you feel her soul, sincerity, and deep emotions. YOU CAN FEEL WHAT SHE SINGS ABOUT. She has old fashioned roots, style, ALL mixed with modern day funkiness, class, style, commanding stage presence, explosive energy, constructive confidence and assertiveness, must I go on?

She's a new age hybrid combination of ARETHA, TINA, BILLIE HOLIDAY AND PATTI LABELLE.

TAKE NOTICE AMERICA, WE ARE WITNESSING A SERIOUS SUPERSTAR IN THE MAKING HERE. MARK MY WORDS, SHE WILL BE A HUGE SUCCESS FOR A VERY LONG TIME!!

Moral: cream always rises to the top in due time, this lady is a specially talented individual who is very deserving of a legitimate break and opportunity in the relentless, tough jungle called the entertainment business. Fantasia is the real deal based on talent, desire, and emotions, not by gimmicks, lip sinking, trendiness, publicity stunts, and the like. Just sit back and let her talent engulf and wash over you!

Five stars in my book, and I wish I could give it 10

I'm sure I'm not the first person to write this, but I'm certainly not going to go through over 600 reviews to confirm it. So forgive me now if you've already know this. Fantasia haters...eat your heart out, this little girl with the big voice from a little American town that no one had ever heard of, has been nominated for FOUR grammys. Up against some heavy hitters too. Alicia Keys, Mariah... Stevie Wonder. Whew! Now what does that say to you?

I guess what I don't understand is that if you're not a Fantasia fan, why bother to post your opinion? Sure you're entitled to your opinion but you all sure expend a whole lot of negative energy just flat out bashing either her looks, clothing, music, single motherhood, hard life. Good grief!

I guess I'm a little confused. I wasn't a Carrie Underwood fan, but I'm not bashing her album. I'm not a Clay Akin fan either, well I am kinda but I would never buy his music. Different strokes for different folks.

Anyway, I've been a fan of hers since her audition. When I listen to her sing I am so moved by her raw emotion, the way her voice can slide on and off a note and still sound good, her stage presence...I just simply love everything about Fantasia. I haven't stopped listening to her CD since I got my hands on it last summer. Really. I've listened to it every day in my car for the last 8 months. When you listen to her, it's as if she's an old soul in a young body. Wow. Simply incredible. Amazing. Outstanding! And while others are so busy bashing her, the top people in the music industry seem to think she is a force to be reckoned with. Aretha Franklin calls Fantasia her daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasia=Fantastic November 27, 2004
By JJ222
Format:Audio CD
I Love Fantasia. I think she is without question of a doubt the best American idol winner since the series began. On the show, I enjoyed each and every performance she made, and I also enjoy her debut album, Free Yourself.

1. Ain't Goin' Beg You- Could be a single on the album. Sounds similiar to a song Ruben would probably put out...5 STARS!

2. Free Yourself- Not my favorite on the album but it has catchy lyrics......4 Stars

3. Truth Is....-Fantasia's First Single. First, I heard it on AOL and thought it was a really good song. I still think it is. Where is the music video for this song???.......5 Stars!

4. Selfish (I Want U 2 Myself)- Missy Elliot is featured on this song. I really like it and understand what she's saying. It's not my favorite but it's still good....4 stars

5. Summertime- Best remake of this song ever! Fantasia delievered this song as if she was singing it live on the show. It is one of the best songs on the album!....5 Stars

6. Baby Mama- Aight, now I like this. I like the fact that's she proud of herself for being a young mother. Also, letting "baby mamas" to keep their heads up even though it is hard! .....5 stars!

7. Got Me Waiting- Sounds real good. It has catchy lyrics also. It could possibly be a later single....4 Stars

8. It's All Good- I heard that this couldv'e been her first single, but i'm glad it wasn't. I don't really like this song because it sounds so different in a lot of ways but fantasia still sings the hell out of it! .....3 Stars!

9.You Were Always On My Mind- The 2nd remake on the album originally by Willie Nelson. Also, I enjoyed the saxophone solo during the bridge of the song. Fantasia proves that she is a good interperter on this song......5 Stars!
