Fantasia has released the music video for her single “Lose to win,” and it’s got a very throwback feel to it. The track list is out for David Archuleta’s upcoming album, and listen to a preview of one of the songs. Also, Scotty McCreery is starting up a web series that follows him as he goes out on tour. And read on for the latest album sales from Carrie Underwood, Phillip Phillips, Kelly Clarkson and Colton Dixon.

Fantasia’s “Lose to Win” Music Video
Coming on the heels of Fantasia announcing a new album, along with the cover art and track list, is the music video for her new single “Lose to Win.” It’s very much a throwback video, with vintage filming effects and the season 3 winner all glammed-up. (And I think that’s the same wig she’s wearing on the album cover.) And it doesn’t hurt that the song is pretty good: “Have you ever needed someone so bad, but he ain’t willing to make it last? Sometimes you gotta lose to win again.”
“Lose to Win” is featured on Side Effects of You, which drops April 23, a week later than originally announced.
David Archuleta Album Track List and Song Preview
There’s less than three weeks until David Archuleta’s new album comes out. And as the day gets closer, we’re getting more on what to expect from No Matter How Far. His record label has released the track list:
1. Nothing Else Better To Do
2. Everything and More
3. Don’t Run Away
4. Tell Me
5. Love Don’t Hate
7. Heart Falls Out
8. Notice Me.
9. I’ll Ever Go
And to give you a sense of the sound, here’s a 90-second preview of “Heart Falls Out”:
This song could easily be on any of his previous albums, so I’m sure his fans will enjoy the entire album, No Matter How Far, out March 26.

Scotty McCreery Debuts Web Series
Do you want to get a backstage look at Scotty McCreery’s headlining tour? What about hearing previews of his sophomore album? If so, then check out ScotTV, Scotty’s new web series featured on his website. Two episodes are already online.
Episode 1, which you can watch below, centers on Scotty rehearsing for his Weekend Roadtrip Tour. He says in the video, “I’m only in classes Monday and Wednesday, so Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we’re hitting the road, and we’re going to Nashville and recording.”
Episode 2 sees Scotty visiting the aquarium, where he meets a sea lion and a penguin.
The Top Idol Album Sales
Yet again, the same Idols appear on the Billboard 200. (I guess we’ll have to wait for someone to come out with a new album to see any major changes.) According to USA Today, Carrie Underwood tops the list over Phillip Phillips, Kelly Clarkson (with two albums) and Colton Dixon. I wonder if Colton will receive a bump in sales after Angie Miller performed his song “Never Gone” on Tuesday.
Carrie Underwood‘s Blown Away at #44, selling 13,000 units (Total Sales: 1.335 million)
Phillip Phillips’ The World from the Side of the Moon at #48, selling 12,000 units (Total: 738 million)
Kelly Clarkson’s Greatest Hits — Chapter One at #49, selling 12,000 units (Total: 309,000)
Colton Dixon’s A Messenger at #132, selling 4,000 units (Total: 46,000)
Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger at #174, selling 3,000 units (Total: 1.038 million)
