Epic R&B news came out this past week as Fantasia announced she will be hitting the road with Robin Thicke, Tank and The Bonfyre. We had the chance interview the new R&B star Bonfyre to discuss her new project as well as the upcoming tour. We also find out more about her early beginnings which included performing in a Chinese restaurant. We also discuss the success of her single “Automatic” as well as her new single “U Say”. On our end we discuss new music from Missy Elliott, Lyfe Jennings and Raphael Saadiq. We also take the time to highlight Donell Jones’ second album “Where I Wanna Be” which came out twenty years ago! Lastly we talk about this Dallas Austin/Shawn Stockman beef that’s happening on social media.
