Fantasia was originally set to drop her forthcoming album The Definition Of. . . in two weeks (on June 10), but unfortunately, it has been pushed back to July 29th. Womp. . . womp.
Fortunately for us, the American Idol-winning diva has decided to treat us with the follow-up story to last month’s “So Blue” with the release of her brand new cut: “Sleeping With The One I Love“!
Where “So Blue” dealt with the aftermath of infidelity, “Sleeping With The One I Love” sees Fantasia laying out all the feels you deal with during the actual dangerous affair. “Said I’m sleeping, sleeping, sleeping with the one I love/ Oh, because the one I’m with is good to me/ But he just ain’t good enough,” she dramatically belts over the heavy blues-tinged production.
While some may think the subject matter is a bit much or theatrical, I feel it’s a refreshing and compelling story from start to finish. Something we don’t always get from today’s R&B acts who stick to their typical love song themes. This is a juicy concept and I am all about it – GO OFF TASIA!
