Release Date-Dec 12, 2006
Review-On her second disc, 2004 American Idol winner Fantasia expands her range, adds some attitude and comes up with some genuine R&B gems. "Hood Boy," featuring OutKast's Big Boi, opens the album with a thrilling burst of Motown built on a sample from the Supremes' "The Happening," to which Fantasia adds an amped-up ode to around-the-way boys. "Not the Way That I Do" echoes the chirpy ferocity of Beyonce's "Ring the Alarm," and "Bore Me (Yawn)" is a brutal takedown of underperforming men. But the ferocious "Baby Makin' Hips" is Fantasia's best song to date, a potential shout-along classic on par with Mary J.'s "No More Drama" and Kelis' "Caught Out There."
