Fantasia Returns with "No Time for It": Hear the Empowerment Anthem

Just as American Idol returns to our lives one last time, one of its most successful winners is back with a slick new single.

Fantasia revealed "No Time for It" today, which previews her upcoming album. Over a polished, percolating mix of synths and trappy snares, Tasia showcases an empowering anthem about dismissing your critics and haters with lyrics like, "You wanna tell me how it is, but there’s no time for it / You wanna tell me how you feel, but there's no time for it." Despite being a biting kiss-off track, the singer delivers it all in such a cool, collected manner, making this song more of a subtle anthem.

"No Time for It" kicks off Fantasia's as-yet-untitled fifth studio album, slated for release this year. The LP will follow 2013's GRAMMY-nominated Side Effects of You that included the single "Without Me" featuring Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliott.
