“Ugly” is a song recorded by American singer Fantasia for her fifth studio album, The Definition Of… (2016). It was released by 19 Recordings and RCA Records on April 7, 2016, as a promotional single from the album. Produced by Ron Fair, the song was written by Audra Mae and Nicolle Galyon. A departure from the hip-hop and R&B sound of Fantasia’s previous studio albums, the track is a country and pop ballad revolving around body image and female empowerment. Media outlets had varying opinions of the song’s genre and its content; Fantasia said that it was inspired by her childhood.

“Ugly” received a mixed response from critics, who were divided over Fantasia’s foray into country music. Fantasia performed part of it during the American Idol series finale, which earned positive reviews from media outlets. She also dedicated the song to her daughter Zion during a July 28, 2016, concert broadcast on BET.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Couldn’t have been but a hundred pounds soakin’ wet
All stressed out and worried
Podunk, Missouri
And I don’t know how or why or when her daddy left
But he drove off in a fury
She grew up in a hurry
Now skinny jeans and Maybelline
Make pretty girls do crazy things
Teenage tears and bathroom mirrors
Will stick with you throughout your years

Trust me, it’s all so ugly

[Verse 2]
Picket fence, two-car garage and a man that she don’t love
But he makes six figures
And she thought he’d fix her
But that iron gate feels more and more like an old birdcage
Than a way to keep out the danger
So she takes to liquor
All the champagne brunches and upper-class shine
Can’t keep a woman satisfied
Swimming pools and bow and braids
And the baby thinks mama’s the live-in maid
If you ask me, it’s all so ugly

[Chorus]
So Gimme a rusty old rain silo
Gimme good food that sticks to my bones
Thank you for that good, good man who loves me
With dirt on my hands and scrapes on my knees
The feeling at night when I wash it all clean
I’m telling ya girls, it’s a beautiful thing
Trust me, it’s far from ugly

[Bridge]
Eighteen wheels and an open road
I sing my songs all across the country
Cause these people trust me

[Chorus]
So give me
Gimme a rusty old rain silo
Gimme good food that sticks to my bones
Thank you for that good, good man who loves me
With dirt on my hands and scrapes on my knees
The feeling at night when I wash it all clean
I’m telling ya girls, it’s a beautiful thing
Trust me, it’s far from ugly
