No Time For It

Album: The Definition Of... (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Penned by American producer Brian Kennedy (Rihanna) with songwriters Lance Eric Shipp and Paris "PJ" Jones, this slow jam was released by Fantasia as the lead single from The Definition Of....

    Fantasia has a complicated relationship with the track. "That's the single the label chose to put out," she explained to Vogue. "At first I was thinking, 'Is that a record to come back with?' It set the atmosphere."
  • Fantasia declares here that bad behavior will no longer be tolerated. When asked by Essence about the things that she no longer has time for these days, Fantasia replied: "No time for family drama. If you're gonna be my friend, come in and be strong. I can't cater to you, I can't always let you borrow, borrow, borrow if you can't give me nothing [laughs]!"
