“Even Angels” is a nice ballad, but I much prefer Fantasia when she’s all fierce and funking it up. But what do I know? This song could become a hit.

Fantasia is set to appear on the Oprah show on Wednesday (Feb 3) so expect her to move quite a few units this week!

  1. I love everything Fantasia does. This was a smart first single choice to hopefully get back some of the Idol audience. It’s a really great song and Fantasia, as usual, sounds awesome. Go Fantasia!

  2. R&B ballad. Hmmm. Elliott Yamin records songs like this and people aren’t buying. I’d like to hear her voice more in this song too. It’s quite processed, which seems crazy when the singer has a strong, distinctive voice like Fantasia.

  3. This is a great song. Fantasia is embraced by the urban/r&B music community so hopefully this will be the beginning of putting her back on top!! Oprah has always been so supportive of Fantasia which is fantastic.

  4. Catchy but man this pop stuff is such a waste of Fantasia’s talent. I’d rather it be an album track that’s a little break from harder-edged stuff. It’s not bad, just not what I want out of a lead single from Fantasia.

  5. Well being on Oprah is a great way to really get the news out about her single/new music, so good for Fanty!

  6. Hmm. It’s fine but I don’t love it. I want a little more raw Fantasia voice!

  7. It’s okay, but I prefer the Fantasia who scares Simon.

    Come to think of it, I pretty much like *all* the idols best at moments when they’re scaring Simon. Give me “indulgence” rather than middle-of-the-roadism any day.

  8. fingers crossed that this single helps get fantasia back on the map – she’s another multi – talented alum who, with the right attention and direction, could enjoy tandem success in music, on broadway, etc. singing is her bread and butter, what she’s known for, but there’s a lot of other avenues she could easily segue into… hoping the oprah appearance gives this song the jumpstart it needs – i’m rooting for her.

    lol, you missed the memo – radio only allows one slot for blue eyed soul singers to be the focal point at any given time – it’s robin thicke’s time now, but i hope elliott gets his shot at the slot too :) i think the dude is a w e s o m e :)

  10. It’s nice to hear Tasia’s voice again. I think it’s a lovely ballad, but I, too, prefer her a bit less controlled. I think it’s commercial, and that’s what the label needs from her right now.

    Luckily, she can do both things convincingly. I hope she gets a nice Oprah bump that propels her into some big play and sales on this one — then this commercial song can pay her way while she puts out other more interesting music, too. ….

  12. This song exposes all of the flaws in the voice and delivery of Fantasia. The whole song is overproduced with the synth drums being almost ridiculous. I had hoped Idol would help her more to develop as a talent.

  13. the Fantasia who scares Simon.

    LOL, I’ll never forget that performance!

    One other thing, love the cover picture of Fantasia. She looks really pretty.

  14. It’s generic and unoriginal, which means it will do really well. I was amused by the lyrics which are all about a woman making it on her own without a man. Considering Fantasia took up with a married man, I’m thinking his wife has more in common with the lyrics than Fantasia. LOL

    you may have inadvertently stumbled upon the perfect vehicle that may just make the song successful,… LOL
    fantasia ain’t no debutante, has never fronted or perpetrated herself as a goody two shoes, so if need be, that raw and ready, earthy and real edge could be a selling point if this issue arises… there’s nothing in the media and the pr game that cannot be used to one’s advantage, oui?
    LOL

  16. I don’t know why but this song reminds of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the Usa.” I don’t mean that as a slam or praise – does anyone else hear something similar bewteen the two? (I hope it is a big hit for her, too.)

  17. Considering Fantasia took up with a married man, I’m thinking his wife has more in common with the lyrics than Fantasia. LOL

    Didn’t that come from Star, which I’m sure checks and rechecks its sources? Or was there actually a real source for that?

    I don’t know why but this song reminds of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the Usa.” I don’t mean that as a slam or praise – does anyone else hear something similar bewteen the two?

    OMG you’re right. ARGHHHHHHHHHH. The chorus part is a different tempo but the tune is the same.

    You know what else it reminds me of? Anyone remember Toy Soldiers by Martika?

    i do! lol, gonna have to go fish that out of my cd collection somewhere…

    Miley Cyrus is exactly who I thought of while listening to this! Nope, not a fan of this one…sorry.

  20. Considering Fantasia took up with a married man, I’m thinking his wife has more in common with the lyrics than Fantasia.

    ugh. If true, just one more reason for me to dislike her.

  21. I predict that Tasia will funk it up on Oprah. There will be Tasia-isms galore when she performs live.

  22. From recent interviews, I’ve gathered she has wanted to go a different direction, one that would be a bit more mainstream. I’m not sure this will do it. Course, frankly, radio is so hard for me to predict anymore. I’ve all but given up. Regardless, Fantasia is a major talent, so I hope this works for her.

  23. I sometimes wonder why/how they choose a single. I always hope she has hits, but this one is sorta meh for me, but still hope. On her show, she sang a portion (can’t remember the name) of a song her and mgr wanted as a single…what I heard I really liked a LOT. To me it sounded more like Fantasia. I have never liked the singles they chose for many of my favs from their albums, Bo’s should’ve been Valley of Angels, and there were better choices for Taylor Hicks. I want success for her always. BTW, please note that Star Mag. is only a step up from Nat’l Enquirer.
