New York, NY (May 3, 2019) – Fresh off of her performance at this year’s Grammy Awards, platinum selling singer Fantasia just dropped her brand new single, “Enough.” The single is available now via all digital retailers and is featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, as well as Apple Music’s R&B Hot Tracks. Produced by Jevon Hill for Co-Captain Productions, “Enough” also marks the singer’s new partnership with BMG. To bring the song to life, Fantasia called on her friend Derek Blanks to direct the music video which premiered at midnight on YouTube. “Enough” is just the beginning for Fantasia fans. Last night during a “watch party” with her fans, the singer announced the new album will be called Sketchbook and is coming this fall. Earlier this week, she let fans know the album will see some incredible collaborations with everyone from Meghan Trainor to Jazmine Sullivan to Brandy. She also confirmed a full tour in support of Sketchbook that will keep her on the road through the end of the year.
Fantasia has not slowed down a bit since winning American Idol 15 years ago. The singer has released 6 studio albums including the 2017 release of her first ever holiday album, Christmas After Midnight. Produced by Ron Fair, the 12-track album was recorded live in Los Angeles’ iconic Capitol Studios and received rave reviews from press. Since then she’s been writing non-stop, creating this new record which will be her most personal album to date. She recently returned from the Tom Joyner Cruise, had the highest rated episode of “Uncensored” on TV One, performed on Motown 60 which aired on CBS this past April, and was one of the incredible singers to celebrate Quincy Jones’ 85th anniversary which premiered on BET in December.
North Carolina native Fantasia broke on to the scene in 2004 as the season three winner of Fox’s American Idol. Later that year, she released her platinum-selling debut album Free Yourself and became the first artist in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart to debut at #1 with her first single, “I Believe.” The singer’s eponymous sophomore effort, released in 2006, featured the #1 R&B single “When I See U,” and reached gold status. In 2010, Fantasia earned her first ever Grammy Award for the hit single “Bittersweet,” off her critically acclaimed third album Back to Me. Side Effects of You followed in 2013, debuting at #1 on the Billboard R&B Albums Chart and #2 on the Billboard Top 200. On July 29, 2016, Fantasia released her fifth studio album, The Definition Of…., which became her third consecutive #1 R&B album debut, her fourth top ten debut on the Billboard 200, and earned her another Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance.
In addition to being a mainstay in music, Fantasia adds author and actress, to her growing list of accomplishments. In 2006, she released her New York Times best-selling memoir, Life Is Not a Fairytale, and starred as herself in the Lifetime movie of the same name. In 2007, Fantasia landed the coveted role of Celie in Broadway’s “The Color Purple” for which she won a Theater World Award. Fantasia returned to Broadway in 2013 as the first celebrity engagement in After Midnight, a dance-focused musical that celebrated Harlem’s iconic Cotton Club during the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s and’30s. After receiving rave reviews, Fantasia joined the cast of After Midnight for a second run in May 2014.
