Fantasia had this to say about the upcoming tour and what fans can eagerly expect: “I’ve been blessed to perform all over the world and have never been as excited & hungry to hit the stage as I am for this tour! The stage is my sacred place and where I feel most connected with people through my music. This tour is sure to be one that’s full of great surprises, incredible energy, and an absolutely great time for everyone who is able to come party with Rock Soul in the city nearest you.”
The announcements do not cease here, with the exuberating release of her second single “PTSD” featuring T-Pain. While remaining sexy and provocative with its infectious, laid-back beat, “PTSD” speaks to good riddance of a love that is far from conducive to your mental-health stability.
“This was a much edgier song for me but one that I felt was needed on the Sketchbook album. Many people have experienced disappointment in the pursuit of love, but refuse to let one bad experience dictate their entire outlook on love & romance overall,” Fantasia says about the track.
