Fantasia and Robin Thicke: A match musical match made in heaven? Or maybe a mismatch made somewhere else?
We’ll find out this fall, when the former American Idol winner and Blurred Lines singer hit Tampa together.
Fantasia has announced Thicke and singers Tank and the Bonfyre will join her new tour, which arrives at the Yuengling Center on Nov. 23. Tickets start at $54.75 and go on sale Sept. 13. Click here for details.
For a lot of fans, Thicke may be the more recognizable name on the bill, thanks to Blurred Lines (and the many messy controversies that followed). But it’s the Grammy-winning Fantasia who has turned into one of her generation’s best, most fiery soul singers.
As Leslie Jones put it recently on Saturday Night Live: “I don’t want the Fantasia white people know. I want the Fantasia black people know. I want the back-of-the-church, eating-a-fish-sandwich Fantasia. I want the sweaty-face, kicking-off-her-shoes-before-she-goes-'UH-HUH-AH-AHH!' — that’s the Fantasia Barrino I want.”
If Thicke can hold his own with that Fantasia, more power to him.
