Fantasia has finally unveiled the visuals for her ‘Without Me’ single, the second track to be lifted from her latest CD, ‘The Side Effects of You.’

The song features singer Kelly Rowland, rapper Missy Elliott, and is definitely one of the stand out tracks on Fantasia’s new album.

The visuals were directed by photographers Gomillion and Leupold- who really did their thing. If I didn’t know better I could have easily mistaken this for a Hype Williams production.

Fantasia: Health Scare Prompted Backup Plan

Fantasia Fantasia recently sat down with CNN and for the first time explained what prompted her to miss over 50 performances last year during her run as Celie in the Broadway production of The Color Purple.

The American Idol winner, who is now back starring in the play, says an unexpected health scare is what sidelined her run last summer, and ultimately forced her to seek a backup plan… an education.

“Actually, I had tumors, I was having surgery, and I was just tired,” says Fantasia. “I didn’t understand why I was so tired. I would go from “The Color Purple” and go get IV’s because they would say I was dehydrated but it wasn’t that. I had two tumors that were draining everything out of me.”

The tumors were in Fantasia’s throat of all places and the singer says she was unable to speak for over six weeks. Fully recovered now, Fantasia says almost losing her voice prompted her to to go back to school and seek her high school diploma.
