The American Idol alum visited the WHUR radio studios yesterday in Washington, DC for an interview. She also played a new mellowed out R&B song, which goes by the title *drumroll* ‘If I Was A Bird’. Yes, although this was clearly unintended pun on her behalf, the jokes certainly do write themselves! I mean, c’mon. She’s like, the biggest piece of chicken you will ever come across. Take a listen to ‘If I Was A Bird’ below.
‘If I Was A Bird’ (#3 on the tracklist) will make a nice album cut ONLY. It’s not an attention grabber and neither does it represent the “rock-soul” influences that she’s been touting us with recently. The arrangement is very Brandy-ish, but that is never a bad thing coming from a mega Brandy fan! Subject matter of being free from heartbreak is becoming a little too cliche for her but the subdue vocals and light harmonies are simply beautiful. Fantasia’s new album is slated to hit stores on April 23rd!
