If Fantasia Barrino is still reeling from the after-effects of her reported attempted suicide or the allegations made against her by her “mans” estranged wife, you would never know it. As MTV notes just seven days after the Season 3 American Idol champ’s overdose, she’s now heading straight to the promo trail for her upcoming album Back To Me.
MTV quotes a new press release issued by the singer’s label J Records, where Fantasia states the following:
“I can’t thank my fans enough for their prayers and support during such a challenging time. It has given me the motivation to get back to work and honor the commitments I made to promote Back To Me. I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this album and I pray that everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
Barrino is also due to make appearances on Good Morning America (August 24, the day of Back To Me’s release), Lopez Tonight (August 25), 106 & Park (September 8), Live With Regis and Kelly (September 9) and The Wendy Williams Show (September 10). We’re guessing that the respective shows’ hosts will have a whole lot more to talk to Fanny about now than was originally planned.
In the meantime, MJ’s Big Blog has posted “Lucky,” a track that apparently didn’t make the cut for Fantasia’s Back To Me.
One listen to the lyrics gives some inkling as to why maybe this wasn’t the most appropriate song for ‘tasia to be putting out there at this point in time:
Damn, she get to have this every night,
What a lucky girl
Boy you hit that spot just right
I’m a lucky girl…
I know you got a girl
And you know I’m alone…
