The Fantasia Lose to Win video, from the former American Idol singer, has provided us with one of our favourite R&B videos 2013.
Fantasia Lose to Win Video
The new Fantasia ‘Lose to Win’ video is dripping in 20s glamour with the singer swathed in feathers and pearls. The video channels the more risque side of The Great Gatsby era and between her 20s bob, bodysuit, bling and story of female empowerment we’re loving it.
You can see why she won the Best Female R&B Vocal Performance Grammy for her song ‘Bittersweet‘. Though, the third winner of Idol, Fantasia Barrino, is not just a great singer. She also starred as Celie in the broadway musical The Color Purple.
Last month she returned to American Idol and performed the vintage glamour of this great new track. See this season’s judges, including Nicki Minaj, enjoying her performance:
Burlexe is a sensational London burlesque show inspired by the women who created the genre and perform the art. It fuses burlesque performance with storytelling, dancing with acting.
We love to see burlesque’s influence on the world and Fantasia Lose to Win video is one such source.
