She told HipHollywood.com that she’s feeling a fusion will be a better fit for her musical talents and interests.
“I’m doing something different. I call it Rock-Soul,” she said. “I love music. I grew up on good music, not only just R&B artists. I grew up on Elton John, Aerosmith, Queen, Billy Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, all of these different types of music. So, I feel like I don’t want to be boxed in anymore on just one type of music.”
The transition could be easy for her, given her Gospel/R&B style. Though she has a really high-pitched voice that for some can get annoying, she still has this ability to reach down into the depths of a soul and touch somebody, like they do in church.
Fantasia said she’s gleaning to the path Tina Turner took as a singer – from Soul to Rock.
“I love the fact that Tina Turner, when she first came out, everybody loved her. She’s always soul, but she took a different direction, and I felt like that was her passion and where her heart was at. So, for me, that’s where my heart is. I’m going to follow it,” said Fantasia.
She’s hoping to release the new album in March.
