As TV ratings climb to a new peak (again) for this year’s American Idol fans across the country are eager to see which young hopeful comes out on top this season. With that in mind, I can’t help but wonder if the release of Idol alumnus Fantasia Barrino’s latest single, Even Angels, at the opening of Idol fever is a coincidence. One listen to the track, though, and any speculation takes a backseat to Fantasia’s absolutely beautiful blend of confidence and control as her assertive vocals overlay a wonderfully energetic, piano-laced melody and synth-heavy chorus courtesy of production team The Stereotypes. The track’s driving force, though, comes in the form of its inspiring and cleverly-crafted lyrics that bleed emotion while maintaining clarity: “Every day I’m stronger, I can’t get better if it don’t hurt.” Angels will be featured on Barrino’s currently untitled album, set to drop sometime later this year. In the meantime, fans can catch Fantasia’s performance of Angels on the Oprah show February 3.
