R&B has been on life support for years without any hope of recovery. Other than glittery Miguel and his silky edges, The-Dream and waffle-colored wonder Drake (IF he even counts), Fantasia is the dying genre’s last mainstream hope in 2013.
Here are ten reasons why R&B NEEDS Fantasia. Take a look.
She’s the last vocally-incredible female SINGER standing. Without Tasia, contemporary R&B is a hopeless wasteland of Power Ranger costume-wearing (Keyshia Cole), Wal Mart-weaved (K. Michelle), struggle-note moaning (Cassie, Erica Mena) “singers.”
Tasia wiped the mistress filth and shame off, got her teeth fixed, lost the kangaroo pouch and looks amazing. Her comeback story is truly inspirational.
When focused (and baby mama drama-free), Tasia Mae is the most entertaining barefoot performer in ALL of R&B.
Jazmine Sullivan is still “missing” five years after her slept-on sophomore album “Love Me Back.”
Beyonce left R&B for deeeeeed and was never replaced. Tasia has the raw talent to bring the once golden genre back.
Struggly auto-tune crooners like Future are the new “faces of R&B.”
Kelly Rowland wants you to care about her solo career so bad—bless her heart—but lacks the overall star power to truly win.
Teedra Moses is still being held hostage in the darkest depths of Rick Ross’ always full belly.
Very few singers have a better ear for production than Tasia. Her catalog is low-key essential.
Her new album “Side Effects of You” (April 23) is everything R&B needed, vocally and artisically. If THIS album doesn’t win, mainstream R&B dead.
