Fantasia’s Latest Album ‘The Definition Of…’ Debuts at No. 1 on R&B Albums Chart
Fantasia Barrino just scored her second No. 1 on the R&B Albums chart.
The High Point, North Carolina native’s newest album, The Definition Of... sold 30,000 in the week ending (Aug. 4), according to Nielsen Music. All five of her albums have at least hit the top 3 on the charts.
Her second single, “Sleeping With the One I Love,” is a gritty love ballad. In the video, Fantasia appears to be in prison, and is battling with herself.
"I'm bringing back rock-soul," Barrino explained in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
She’s made it clear she won't cut a song that doesn't make her feel anything.
"After 12 years, I have to do what my heart wants," she said in the interview. "There were times I left the studio thinking, if I can't do it this way, I don't want to do it at all. I never started out as an R&B singer, I grew up on all types of music – jazz, rock, pop, country, folk – and I wanted to bring that to my stage."
