Fantasia Returns On Top: ‘Side Effects of You’ Makes Chart Debut

"American Idol" winner and "Lose To Win" singer Fantasia Barrino has returned strong on the album charts.

Her fourth studio album, "Side Effects of You," debuted within the top 2 on the Billboard 200 Wednesday.

With production from Harmony, along with contributions from Missy Elliott and Kelly Rowland, the anticipated album moved 91,000 copies.

"In the runner-up slot this week is Fantasia with her fourth studio effort, "Side Effects Of You" (91,000). It matches the 2004 "American Idol" winner's highest rank, logged when her 2010 set "Back to Me" also debuted and peaked at No. 2 (117,000). However, "Side Effects" represents the smallest opening week for Fantasia, though it's not all that far from the sales start of "Back to Me" almost three years ago," Billboard reports.

Sales of that amount have also secured top placement for Fantasia on other charts, including the R&B Albums Chart, where "Side Effects of You" arrives at no.1.

In related news, Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" holds at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 for another week, selling 74,000.
