Sometimes you really do have to lose to win. Preach sister!!! Fantasia is back with a hot new single and she’s taking a page out of the Taylor Swift playbook. The American Idol Season 3 winner’s “Lose To Win” contains lyrical content about the controversy surrounding her relationship with Antwaun Cook. If delving into her personal life produces gems like her latest, then I say go with it. “Lose To Win” might be my favorite offering from her… EVER.
The R&B mid-tempo track is the lead single from her forthcoming fourth studio album, The Side Effects of You. If the beat sounds familiar, it’s because it samples the Commodores’ 1985 hit, “Nightshift.” Loved that she went old school for inspiration. For the accompanying visual, the 28-year-old singer shows her acting chops. IMHO, it’s the best she’s ever looked. The 1920s flapper look really works for her. The impeccable styling extends beyond Fantasia. The set and overall concept for the music video is top notch. Check it out below. I love that true R&B is making a comeback.
