(New York, NY – August 18, 2010) – Hit-making songwriter Claude Kelly pens musical gold yet again with Fantasia‘s “Bittersweet,” which jumped to #1 on the Urban Adult Radio Airplay chart as the #1 greatest gainer at the format. Once again, Claude Kelly is at the helm of a chart invasion, which is a familiar position for the “Studio Beast,” whose numerous chart-topping credits include Kelly Clarkson‘s Billboard Hot 100 #1 “My Life Would Suck Without You,” Miley Cyrus‘ Billboard Hot 100 #2 “Party In The U.S.A.,” Britney Spears‘ Billboard Hot 100 #3 “Circus,” Jason Derulo‘s Billboard Hot 100 #5 “In My Head,” among others.
“Bittersweet,” the lead single off Fantasia’s forthcoming album,”Back To Me,” out August 24th on J Records, marks the long-awaited return of the platinum-selling songstress. On May 12th, she commanded the American Idol stage with a soul-stirring performance of the song and was met with great reviews – which further cemented Claude Kelly’s status as a masterful songwriter. While on stage, Fantasia expressed her excitement about getting back to her roots and “working with a lot of great people [including] Claude Kelly.”
