Fantasia vs. Dawn Richard – R&B Sound Off
With a heavy rock rhythm in the background, the ‘American Idol’ alum throws her heart on her sleeve with this edgy soul track. Big K.R.I.T. adds some swag to the track with a rap breakdown in the bridge. ‘Supernatural Love’ is the latest single off Fantasia’s new album, ‘Side Effects of You.’ “I’m a lady, I’m a woman, I’m a mother, I’m a daughter / But when I’m with you, I have powers / Baby, this how you make me feel,” she sings.
Who’s going up against Fantasia this week? Welcome Dawn Richard. The former Danity Kane and Dirty Money member has been going strong on her own with her critically acclaimed solo debut LP, ‘Goldenheart.’ Richard recently released, ‘Army,’ which may be part of her upcoming sophomore effort, ‘Blackheart.’ ‘Army’ talks about a woman who’s been having issues with her man and is now glad that they’re through.
“If it was up to you, I’d drown / I can’t believe you stole my crown, yeah / Going to have to get it back now / A bruise to my pride / You think defeat is in my eyes / But I was born to bear the tide,” she sings.
