It has been a minute since we heard from Fantasia Barrino, but she is back in the music scene with a new sound. The artist’s brother shared a clip from her latest single, asking fans to go on and have a listen. She looks good too in a yellow swimsuit.
Fantasia Barrino may have been gone for a while, but she is bouncing back with new soulful music. Her brother posted a clip of the artist in a yellow bathing suit looking better than ever. Her new song is catchy and fans hope that an album is on the pipeline.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t been all fun and games in Fantasia's life these last few months. Her nephew, Tyquan Von Ricco Washington was killed in a shooting Tuesday in North Carolina. According to the Greensboro Police Department, the 18-year-old had multiple gunshot wounds and while medics did their best to save him, he was pronounced dead on arrival at Moses Cone Hospital. His father, Ricco Barrino, who is a recording artist, wrote an emotional lengthy tribute.
“I remember holding you for the first time that’s when I knew that I had to do something other than work in somebody’s factory so that one day you could look up to me,” he continued. “As I write this letter with tears streaming down my face I want you to know that I showed you tough love because I knew you were something special. I never forget the first time that me and your mother took you to gymnastics for tryouts. I remember the lady walking over to us and telling us that we would have to wait behind a long list of other kids lol I guess she didn’t know what my kid was capable of because when she turned around she spotted you turning somersaults as if you were in the US Olympics.”
Ricco regretted not writing the piece sooner and wished his son eternal rest.
