In the dressing room before she takes the stage, Fantasia Barrino can't stop thinking about someone from the past.
Fantasia Barrino recalls "Bittersweet" memories with an old lover in a new music video. The singer who was crowned "American Idol" winner in 2004 has Washington Redskins receiver Devin Thomas as her leading man.
The Lenny Bass-directed clip was filmed on a location at The Box in New York City. The sultry video features Fantasia in a backstage dressing room reflecting over a bittersweet love affair as she prepares to perform in front of an awaiting audience.
"Bittersweet" is the lead single of Fantasia Barrino's upcoming third studio effort titled "Back to Me". The song written by Claude Kelly has made its way out since May, while the album is set for a U.S. release on August 10.
The record is described as an emotionally charged album which features a sole guest appearance by Cee-Lo and songs written and/or produced by Ne-Yo and Rico Love among others.
