The Story Behind “Fancy”
While “Fancy” is an interesting track for Reba, she didn’t write it. Bobbie Gentry wrote and recorded the track in 1969. Reba McEntire covered it in 1990 and the track ended up surpassing Gentry’s by a wide margin. McEntire took the song and made a smash hit music video out of it.
It follows her character, Fancy Rae Baker, who’s a singer and actress. She sings about spending most of her life in poverty. In the song, a “benevolent man” ends up taking her in, which turns into a metaphor for prostitution — it’s implied that Fancy is working to make a better life for herself and her family by selling her body.
“Fancy” continues to be an enduring hit, and the new dance remix is helping to cement its legacy even further. Plus, you can dance to it in a totally different way now thanks to its modern transformation.
