I haven’t been Fantasia’s biggest fan post-Idol, but girl is winning me over lately. First she debuted a kick-ass video for “Lose To Win” and now this sexy new ballad featuring two of my favorite R&B ladies- Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliott. “Without Me” is a female empowerment song that serves as a reminder to men that they wouldn’t be the same without their ladies.
“So Thankful For These Two Beautiful Ladies.We Created A Monster on this Album.. Missy is Going STUPID HARD ON THIS 1!!! OMG!!! Kells VOCALS On Here!! Cra!! Thanks to my BABIES.” – Fantasia
“Without Me” is already a sultry track, but with Rowland’s smooth vocals, it puts it over the edge. Add in Elliott’s lyrical prowess and it’s R&B magic. Both Fantasia and Missy co-wrote the track with Kyle Stewart, Harmony Samuels, and Al Sherrod. How awesome is it to see Missy Elliott back? Hopefully her appearance on this track and on Little Mix’s addictive “How Ya Doin’?” means a solo album is on its way soon. Check out Kelly, Missy and Fantasia’s collaboration below.
If you want more Fantasia, be sure to tune in to this week’s American Idol results show. The 28-year-old singer returns to the show to perform “Lose To Win.” What do you think of the track? Who’s your favorite out of the three? I hope they film a video for this. Sound off below.
