When Fantasia's anticipated music video for "Lose To Win" premieres, it is going to be powerful. While on set filming the video recently, Fantasia broke down in tears because the song means so much to her.
"That song is special to me. It's my testimony. I think everybody can relate to that song. When they hear it, they don't just think of a relationship. They think of everything in life. A lot of people have lost a lot of things. Jobs. Homes. Children. So much. So sometimes you have to lose to win again. I think of that across the board," Fantasia said on location for the shoot.
Beyond the video, which is due to premiere in full soon, Fantasia says everything that she has been through, including a near death experience, has made her the woman that she is today.
"We can get so caught up in all of this. I almost lost myself and my life over it but I won't do that anymore. I live life to the fullest," she says in video below.
In related news, Fantasia has cleared up the new look she has for this era and album.
Citing Josephine Baker and Billie Holiday, the "Lose To Win" singer says this look is not a costume.
"I grew up on good music. Josephine Baker, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone… those women were just amazing to me. Nobody has tapped into that era and I think I'm going to take it and run with it. You think it's a costume. I say it's my whole swag now," says Fantasia.
