Fantasia Releases Sophomore Album

Published: 2006-11-15
American Idol's season three winner Fantasia Barrino, now known as just Fantasia, has a December release date set for the follow-up to her debut album Free Yourself.

The self-titled release features some producing credits from Missy Elliott, Swizz Beatz, Dre & Vidal and Midi Mafia.

Babyface and songwriter Diane Warren came together for the album's last track "I Feel Beautiful."

"The lyrics on that song are very emotional for me and when I recorded it, I just broke down at the end. It's my song for my Mom," said Fantasia in a press release.

The 22-year-old also got some help from Outkast's Big Boi, who can be heard on the album's first single, "Hood Boy."

Fantasia's second album comes out December 12.
