Fantasia, "Collard Greens and Cornbread"
With a title like "Collard Greens and Cornbread," listeners may find themselves unsure of what to expect from Fantasia Barrino's latest single. That mystery is cleared up as soon as the first chorus arrives, however, as the former "American Idol" champ describes a special kind of love as being "better than my momma's collard greens and cornbread." Following two powerful singles from her "Back to Me" album, "Cornbread" is saturated with sultry vocals and lyrics that are laced with infatuation. The song also samples the Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terell duet "Your Precious Love," which gives it an old-school vibe that nicely matches the theme of the track. Lyrics like "That's some real love/Oh I ain't gonna lie boy you got me out of my mind in L-O-V-E/ I go crazy when you love me" exude the passion and overall tone of Fantasia's latest radio offering.
