The Return Of Ashanti
Almost four years after her last album, 'The Declaration', Ashanti is back with her fifth album, 'Braveheart', and it looks like it will be a bigger success than her under-promoted previous offering, which was released just before the time of her departure from The Inc...
The 31-year-old’s latest LP will be released under her new label, Written Entertainment. In the run-up to the release, the New York native has been placing herself under the spotlight with some controversial fashion choices and her much-publicised tribute to Whitney Houston on 'Good Morning America'.
The first single from the album, 'The Woman You Love', features Busta Rhymes and is a great effort to reignite the love we all had for the 'Foolish' singer back in the early noughties, with vocals to put Rihanna back in her place and lyrics that 99% of women can empathise with.
Although the video is yet to be released, but a sneak peak can be seen on YouTube. The video shows the singer–songwriter dressed as a warrior with Lady GaGa-esque blue lipstick! Let's just say that her swag is very different these days.
Ashanti's April 17-released album, 'Braveheart', will have a tracklist that looks a little something like this:
2. 'Get it'
3. 'The Woman You Love' Feat. Busta Rhymes
4. 'Perfect So Far'
5. 'Don't Tell Me No'
7. 'Three Words'
8. 'Never Should Have'
9. 'Bona fide Survivor'
10. 'That's What We Do' Feat. R. Kelly
12. 'Woman to Woman' Feat. Keyshia Cole
