New Music: Fantasia – Lose To Win

Kid Fury December 19, 2012 New Music 44 Comments

Fanny Mae has returned with a testimony of broken hearts and recovery just in time for the holidays. The singer released her new single, “Lose To Win”, for fans today and it’s a real R&B/Soul gem. Stay mad, Tamar.

The song makes me wanna shed a tear while doing The Electric Slide and I appreciate that jig appeal. I think there is a sample in here that I recognize and can’t put my finger on it, but it smells like Lionel Richie.

Either way, Fantastia’s fourth studio album is due early next year (reports are saying March) and this is a really great first offering. Good for you, Fanny!

    I love me some Fanny Mae! She did that! I love how she held back a lil on this song! The sample is nightshift by the commodores. Jackie O used it on self made bitch! 

  • brandonjaye

    The sample is “Nightshift” by the Commodores.  The first hit song they had AFTER Lionel left.

    • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

      LMAO the shade at the end of your comment

      • brandonjaye

        I am not above shading the low hanging fruit.

  • Beyoncelover56

    Gives me solange losing you vibe!!!! R&B coming back in 2013. Now all I am waiting for beyonce to come back with some fiyah!!!

    Lol, wouldn’t it be funny if beyonce comes out with some wack shit? She wont though. But it would be hilarious, all of this artists coming out with great music and the queen just flops.

    • Candancesmith17

      Like 4 wasn’t a flop..

      • Miles

        actually, 4 was not a flop. If you can’t recall, it came in at number one on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 310,000 copies. This is more than Rihanna, Nicki, Alicia, and so many other of these basic bitches 

        Get your shit together

        • Seiko

          and less then Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Lady Antebellum. Get your life sugar. 4 flopped 

          • Brandon Dean

            Taylor Swift? Lady Antebellum? Everybody knows basic country folks are the only ones that buy records nowadays. Not to defend beyonce but they don’t count. Thats like saying she flopped compared to Kids Bop. Who. The. Fuck. Cares. 

            And lets be honest. Gaga as much as I love her, sold her album for 99 cents for the first week. Lets just call a spade a spade.

          • Destiny

            4 was the biggest selling R&B album of 2011 and sold well over 3 million worldwide. That’s not a flop. She did all those numbers with no big hits. 

          • CaramelHottie

            You can’t compare an authentic R&B album with no commercial appeal to bubble gum pop artists..

          • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

            4 was Authentic R&B…..who knew?!?!?! It technically wasn’t a flop but in Bey’s standards it kinds was. I bet Alicia, Keri and Ciara wish they could flop like that tho lmao

          • Brandon Dean

            Kinda reminds me of how Michael Jackson’s last album “Invincible” was considered a “flop” despite selling over 5 million albums. 

      • Omegweekes

        How was “4″ a flop when it outsold many artist. I guess when you singles are not top ten singles, this generation consider your album a flop. Smh.

        • brandonjaye

          I just love reading bitches with zero singles judging someone else’s flops.  I guess if you’ve never done anything, everything you do is successful.

  • Kaye

    iLike. Go Fantasia! Can’t wait for a glorious barefoot performance! Honestly though, her voice is unique and Im glad she’s back.

  • Comeback

    I’m getting a nice 80s vibe from this song ! go head tasia ! LOL

  • ziggy gnarly.

    This makes me want to two-step up and down this message board.

  • Barack Yomomma

    Fanny Mae is giving me a “I enjoyed making this song and you all will deal” vibe and I’m not even mad.

  • Miles

    I still remember the time you called her Fanny Mae Brice De’LaGhetto and I got the entirety of my life

  • Shug

    I don’t know what I like more….that pic’ of Fanny or the song….both are a win in my book. Ga’head Bew! 

  • whatevs

    The jokes write themselves about that title… but the song and her new look aren’t that bad. It’s cute! Also the Commodores sample make me want to get up and shout whatever that chanting was at the end of All Night Long 

  • Kayy

    I knew I heard a lil Commodores in there. Well, go on Fanny!

  • Awkwardfunny_girl

    This song definitely gives me the urge to get into a mama side step shuffle. Thanks Fanny!

  • NoseyJonesy

    I’m here for this Fantasia!!! This feels like a blast from the past but still very current. I enjoyed her last two albums and I’m looking forward to her new project. 

  • Tom André Bardwell

    I’m here for the sly Tamar shade. She better stay mad sitting on them stools.

  • Nickey Topnerd

     Honey THIS is Commodores Realness! Night Shift

  • Brandon Dean

    I am loving the song and that photo. For once somebody took a shot that makes her look stylish, and not just Swole and Simple.

  • she-bangs

    fantasia looking like Ike w/ that damn wig! 

    • CaramelHottie


      Miss she-bang bye! Please leave now

    • Scarf Junkie

  • Ron Campbell

    fantasia this one is fire 

  • Ices Brown’s Moves

    Luvz it! ;3

  • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare

    Fanny came and gave me everything I needed with this track!  Yasss!  Got me with my left arm in the air, poppin my fangers, eyes closed and lips pursed just so.  Feeling it!

  • Alicia Collins

    She’s so fucking talented. When you got a voice that you don’t even have to work that hard for. It’s a gift.  I hope she keeps kicking around. 

  • Damn

    sigh kid fury did you hear fantasia still can’t read?!?! lmao

    • KidFury

      She made a song called “Collard Greens & Cornbread” … She paid her damn debt to society!

      • Damn


      • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

        That song still slays no matter how much struggle and strife echoes from the title lmao.

  • tt0286

    I love Fannie Mae, even through all the ratchet shit. She’s from High Point, so I can only expect so much. I know Queen Bey slays and I am not coming for anyone, but this is a Fanny post, so can we keep it a Fanny post? In plus there are a lot of slayers including my fav, Empress Ledisi, please go see her live. Fannie looks good, sounds good, so I am hoping she puts all the tacky antics away. 

  • Doyenne Eleganza Saint-Augusti

    I usually don’t see it for Fantasia. I don’t mind hollering (hey, Pattie!) but an album’s worth of it (hey, Alicia!) is just not the business for me. But this song gives me everything I could have ever wanted from her ever. I’m already using all my powers for downloading this and putting it in rotation.

  • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

    She betta be serving this Oliver from the Brady Bunch bowl cut…. you will all deal.

    I didn’t get the Tamar shade since her song was also clearly R&B and if you can sang like that sitting which Fanny can also do via her Idol Performance of Summertime you gets my applauds. I’m here for R&B in 2013.


     LMFAO!!! Ok,Keri Hilson,Tamar Braxton,Fantasia,Kelly Rowland and Eve all
