Fantasia Unveils Album ‘Sketchbook’ Details

Grammy-Winning, Multi-Platinum Singer, Songwriter Fantasia Unveils 7Th Studio Album “Sketchbook” Details Album Available Everywhere October 11Th

Pre-Order Now Here For Instant Access To “Holy Ghost” New Track Off Sketchbook

After blazing through New York Fashion Week highly celebrated, Grammy Award-Winning singer and entertainer, Fantasia maintains momentum – unveiling more exclusive details around her highly anticipated 7th studio album Sketchbook. Revealing an October 11th release date, custom commissioned album artwork, and the official tracklist of Sketchbook Fantasia prepares fans for a project done completely her way — even dropping a surprise track “Holy Ghost” made available with pre-order purchases starting today!


Sketchbook is Fantasia’s first project under her independently-ran label imprint via Rock Soul in partnership with B.M.G. The 12-track project sketches and weaves together varying topics native to who Fantasia is, the story that has solidified the powerhouse artistry she holds today, and enriching enlightenment to the life she envisions for the future.

Fantasia had this to say about Sketchbook and the inspiration behind the album title “I’ve shared so much with the world but I feel that there is more still in this journey .. I’m still growing. In the sketchbook we’re still coloring out and painting it out the way I want to be seen, not allowing anybody else to take control of that journey. This sketchbook, what I’m showing through my music, no matter where I go, I want people to see that the painting is still being filled in and there’s many colors and many things to Fantasia that they still don’t know — especially music.”  

Fans can also expect an album unlike anything Fantasia has released. The project is genre-less and is a body of work that draws on all the music inspirations near-and-dear to Fantasia — from iconic rock band Queen to her biggest inspiration Ms. Aretha Franklin. It gives a hint of nostalgia from her days at American Idol — singing rock, soul and every genre encompassed in-between.

Already fans can attest to the genres and gems on Sketchbook. Earlier this year “Enough” debuted as the lead single off Sketchbook and currently holds the number two spot on the Billboard Adult R&B charts. The sophomore single “PTSD” featuring T-Pain, released last month, undeniably varies from “Enough” with its steamy melodic-make and provocative new-coined messaging (Post- Traumatic -Sex-Disorder).

Fans have a full month of surprises in store thanks to Fantasia for October. In addition to the album release, The Sketchbook Tour kicks off with Robin Thicke, Tank, and The Bonfyre (acts may vary based on location).
