Fantasia Tries Out Country On New Offering, ‘Ugly’

With new management and new music, Fantasia’s positioning 2016 for a takeover, the “Rock-Soul” artist is now trying out another genre.

Her new release “Ugly” (written by Audra Mae and Nicolle Galyon, and produced by Ron Fair) is a full-fledged country song, complete with guitar, violins, harmonica, and the story of a woman who’s feel unfulfilled in life and seeks fulfillment in a bad relationship.

“Picket fence, two car garage and a man that she don’t love / But he makes six figures, and she thought he’d fix her / But that iron gate feels more and more like an old bird cage, than a way to keep out the danger …..So she takes to liquor,” she sings before singing lyrics of gratitude.

“Ugly” is from her album “The Definition Of…” which will arrive in stores later this year via RCA Records. Fantasia will perform the song on the grand finale of “American Idol”. Cop it on iTunes tomorrow, April 8th.
