A few days back, singer Fantasia Barrino took to her social media page to share a lovely post with fans. The 35-year-old uploaded an image which featured her stunning self and co-star, T. Pain while she spoke on her new album in the post's caption. She began the caption saying:
"Woke up this morning on such a high! I've waited so long to be able to break free and make the type of album that reflects my love for all genres of music,"
"I fought for a certain "sound," and I knew @von_cocapt had that vibe and musical swag to bring what I carry inside me to LIFE! To be independent and drop my 2nd Single (PTSD) and see the response of love & support from fans is just amazing. I could not have done this any other way or with anybody else. This album is full of dope moments that all speak to the woman I am now."
The ending part of the caption saw Fantasia thank photo companion, T. Pain for his apparent collaboration in the album, and urged fans to have a great time with the piece upon its release.
The photo showed Fantasia donning an adorable pink dress with a one-shoulder off design and side-slit to show off her toned legs. While T. Pain, 33, rocked a black blazer and striped pants.
Fans reacted accordingly with comments hailing the singer's look.
An Instagram user wrote:
"fanny fine AF,"
while others chose to anticipate the upcoming album.
In a previousinterview
with Billboard, Fantasia opened up about working on the album and why it was different from her previous ones. She also revealed the reason behind the album's name "Sketchbook."
"Sketches are not perfect. You see the flaws and certain things, but I'm still growing, and whatever God has in mind, I'm still becoming that woman," the publication reported Fantasia to have said.
from Billboard, much of the inspiration behind the singer's album was gotten fromher husband, Kendall Taylor
. The pair got married in 2015.
Fantasia's long-time admirers would be well aware that her recent look is a long way from that of 2015. In a previous feature on PEOPLE, she said:
"In the industry I am in, you have the pressure of perfection — and I definitely gained a few pounds."
However, after following a diet routine which consisted of 1200 to 1400 calories a day and focus on healthy foods, she dropped an outstanding 20 pounds within a short period of time.
Amazingly, she's still got the fitness going on and is looking evergreen as always.
