It should come as no surprise that hitmaker Fantasia is a fan of all the hits!
The "PTSD" singer curated a diverse playlist, including songs from her personal catalog, as well as from artists she admires, like Cardi B, Drake, Anita Baker, Lizzo, DaBaby, Tevin Campbell, Jodeci, Tina Turner, Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston and a whole lot more.
The exclusive station has it all, including Fantasia's explanation of how some of the tracks hold a special place in her heart. Check out a few of her candid stories below:
On what Anita Baker's "Sweet Love" means to her:
I remember when my mom used to play her album every Saturday and it was clean up day.
On being a die-hard fan of Aretha Franklin:
I don't even have to explain why I chose "Chain of Fools" because everyone knows I love Aretha Franklin.
On how Drake is her go-to artist for any and all turn-ups:
When I'm ready to turn up and have a good time, I put [Drake's "Nice For What"] on and my husband always laughs at me, but I [love] it.
On her special connection to Kendrick Lamar's "Be Humble":
This song right here is dear to me because before my little brother got into an accident, we went to the beach and we all created this dance to this song and he was in it. He got into a motorcycle accident so every time I hear the song, I think of the night we were at the beach.
On her love of Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus' "Old Town Road":
This is one of my favorite songs. Every time I hear it makes me want to move. I thought the collab was very clever.
On her favorite track from her favorite artist Rihanna:
I remember when "Hard" dropped. I thought I was the hardest chick. I felt like I could do anything. I was empowered. Rihanna, she's my fave.
