*SOHH Soulful is now updated numerous times a day. Check back throughout the day for that new hotness.*
I don't know y'all. This is the second page I am seeing that Fantasia took from Kelis' book. I give her props for not being afraid to do the blonde thing. But the cut, then the blonde is almost following Kelis' blueprint to the letter.
I am not saying she went out and deliberately copied Kelis. I am just saying that it reminds me of what Kelis did. Especially seeing as Kelis was on the previous cover of Vibe Vixen.
What must have the rest of that photo reel looked like if that is the shot they chose for the cover. Head over to Bitter Vibes to get her take on this issue.
At any rate... Fantasia's cd is banging. It's not getting a lot of burn commercially as I predicted long before it was released. Never the less there is some hot production on the cd. (((kwame did it!)))
Currently Fantasia is #68 on the Billboard charts after only 5 weeks. It debuted at #19.
Here is Fantasia on "Tyra Banks Show" performing "Hood Boy" from 12/15/06.
I guess since the album ain't selling and J Records is now focused on Jennifer Hudson, Fanny will need a hood boy to take care of her. Any takers. Anyone. Anyone.
I talk shit, but that voice is sweet as fuck.
