Hot Shot: Ashanti Shoots ‘The Woman You Love’ Video

Published: Sunday 29th Jan 2012 by Sam

R&B diva Ashanti cranked up the push for her latest single ‘The Woman You Love’ by shooting its accompanying video yesterday.

The singer called on actor/model Marcus Patrick to serve as her leading man in the clip, which is hoped will give the track the boost it needs. Since its release to digital outlets in December, the cut has thus far peaked at #74 (and climbing) on Billboard’s Hip-Hop & R&B Chart.

Fans of the former Murder Inc star should fret not, for Ms. Douglas promises more singles ahead of the release of her first independently released LP when it arrives this Summer.

  7. Marcinis January 29, 2012

    Ashanti is back, and she is going to take over. And you b****** can’t take. But you will learn to deal.

  8. Team Sam January 29, 2012

    Hahaha poor Ashanti trying to be relevant in a world when everybody only sees and hears beyonce & Rihanna just look at the most juicy list on this site The proof is in the pudding nobody hears you Ashanti your calling for help but nobody hears you or see you

  9. YOOSONDALOOSE January 29, 2012

    At least its climbing, come on Ashanti!
    Her fans in America need to really support her!
    The video looks alright, she needs to make sure it is amazing.

  10. ROCKO January 29, 2012

    WAIT!!!!!! … is it Aaliyah?!

  11. Me January 29, 2012

    Marcus Patrick!!! MMMMMMMM 🙂

  12. Relevant vs. irrelevant January 29, 2012

    Ashanti just don’t have that buying fan base that’s gonna really supports her like you know what I mean

    Her fan base don’t go as hard as Rihanna navy & beehives & teamminaj point blank

    Just irrelevant for right now as we speak

    I’m new to this site as we speak lol

  13. AmbeRussell January 29, 2012

    If any1 is using this site to measure an artist’s relevance, then they are fools. If this site comments n hits meant who is at the top of the pack now, then lil Kim is back at her90s spot, xtina is stripped again n a lady gaga Brit collab would flop. If u wanna act like u don’t kno who she is, why get on the post? If some1 is irrelevant, why take the time out to hate?

  14. AmbeRussell January 29, 2012

    Also Ashanti is the perfect case of some1 hit today, gone tomorrow. So any1 of yr dabs who are the s*** now can easily be replaced. 3 yrs in the game n u think they will last 4ever, think again

  15. dlssmile January 29, 2012

    Ashanti is going to flop and I mean hard too…
    Somebody said she taking over?
    The next street corner near you?
    Don’t get me wrong Ashanti had some singles that I digged.
    However she f***** herself up when everyone. And their grandma was going hard at Murder inc.
    If she was smart she would’ve jumped ship and she might’ve been better off.

    Sorry but if you flopped with a major label backing you. You will for sure flop independently.

    Plus that terrible song has been out since December. And all its gotten to is a measly #74 on the R&B/HipHop chart….???

    Sam and Ashanti fans are delusional

  16. SLAYFANISTANN. January 29, 2012

    I don’t find Ashanti my cup of tea (God, No!) but what I WILL say is that her video would most likely end up on 106.If she could make it on the show back in ’08,beter yet,if Miss BasicBitch Hilson could get a vid on the countdown,then Ashanti will most likely be able to make it on the show in 2012

  17. ♛ pop royalty ♛ ( iMusic ) January 29, 2012

    LAY IT ON ME , BABY LAY IT ONE ME , OOOOH

    LAY IT ON ME

  18. Kareem January 29, 2012

    I love you Ashanti I am stay supporting her always

  19. Real January 29, 2012

    Why would she use a gay go-go dancer/ model?

  20. jusnot4m33 January 29, 2012

    ^^^^Cause every man is gay nowadays
    Its hard to know who’s st8t.
    so f*** it

  21. christine January 29, 2012

    Ashanti will NOT FAIL. The song is FIRE and her video’s are ALWAYS on point.
    As a matter of fact her last 2 video’s inspried Rihanna & Beyonce. Think about it
    Ashanti’s “The way that I love you” video…..then……..Rihanna ‘s “Man Down” video
    Ashanti’s “Good Good” video ……then…..Beyonce’s “Why don’t you love me” video
    Nobody gets hated on like Ashanti. NOBODY. She makes all the stans come out because they know what she is capable of. They feel threatened on some level.
    Why else would they make it a point to comment about anything she is doing if they really believed it was destined to fail. They already know that it will NOT fail and an ASHANTI COMEBACK is their biggest FEAR. Deal with it. She’s baaaaaaaaaack !!!!!

  22. James January 29, 2012

    Number 74 on the charts and climbing with no video and only under a week of promotion, I guarantee you this song will be at least a top 40 hit. That’s why you haters are so mad! And remember she is making independent money off this too. Ashanti is amazing!!!!

  23. Wes January 29, 2012

    Yessssssss the princess is back,. haters getting scared cuz they know the princess is coming back strong and they don’t like the fact that she snatching wigs off,. #TEAMASHANTI LEGOooooooooooo

  24. Iluvmusic January 29, 2012

    Yall can stay mad. Ashanti will continue to do what she loves rather you like it or not. She writes her own s*** unlike ALL ya favs.

  25. Theman January 29, 2012

    Actually her song just went for adds this past wk. So it hasn’t been at radio that long at all. Also, theres a difference between a song leaking and a song being sent to radio.

  26. Hush January 29, 2012

    I wish her luck but I have next to no faith that this outing will be successful. Not hating, just being realistic considering the facts.

    #FACT – Ashanti hasn’t been hot since 2003. Her stans still care, but those trendy fans that liked “Foolish” have long since moved on.

    #FACT – Ashanti is coming out in an era that isn’t especially embracing of R&B music.

    #FACT – Ashanti is now releasing music independently, which means limited $$$ for promotion. And that means she’ll have a harder time competing against releases coming from majors.

    I would love her to prove me wrong because I have a desire to see black (R&B) music regain it’s commercial hold, but I’m not holding my breath for Ashanti’s comeback because she has too many things working against her. I feel the same way about SWV’s comeback. Only Brandy and Monica give me a little glimmer of hope; and I’m nervous about them.

  27. Erik January 29, 2012

    The song went for adds at urban radio on the 23rd (not even a week ago) and promotion is just starting. Stop saying what she will and won’t do when she has barely stepped out the gate as of now. The song leaked early and her plans are just coming to frution.

    She know what she’s doing. & I’m sure she’s ready to dish out what she has to to make this project successful. 🙂

  28. Erik January 29, 2012

    And people really need to stop acting as if she had a major label backing from the last cd. FACT she was distributed by a major label, but officially signed under The INC (Irv Gotti) which means that he was in charge of getting her out there.. he didn’t and Ashanti fared on her own for the first time. It may not have gone how she wanted it to but props because she was bold enough to do it. She has learned and when she unveils everything all haters will be doing nothing more than their doing now.. talking. But I mean its cool, another rich & successful african american woman working towards more success.. she’s doing something right. Something to make you feel bad about I guess.

  29. True_Critic January 29, 2012

    I will say firstly, when ASHANTI comes…..she does NOT play…..secondly, if you ILLITERATE ass holes knew so much, you would know ASHANTI was the ONLY bread winner of “The Inc” and they had that FBI investigation which caused the label to plunge….which also gave her the initiative to opt out of the contract…..I belieeeeeeve in you Ashanti…..these TALENTLESS b****** nowadays ie: Rihanna is only popular bc of that GARBAGE music she puts out …its brainwashing & simple….w/ those kindergarten lyrics and vocals …..But Ashanti has NEVER been threatened by other ACTS and i dnt think she will…..those TALENTLESS & Tasteless just do it, while Ashanti stays TRUE to it……remember R****** first TWO albums were RNB and they FLOPPED ….So let’s not go there she also DOESN’T have a #1 album of 5 …..and Ashanti has 2 #1 albums of 4 #POW get yall s*** Toooooogether

  31. Iluvmusic January 29, 2012

    The Declaration sold more than Human and she did that independently. #oops Ashanti is creating her own music with new producers with a new sound. Not working with Sean Garrett getting songs that Beyonce didn’t want like Brandy #oops. Ashanti is not depending on Monica and Rico to help her get first single from a new album. #oops Try again!!!! Just because Brandy is on the Game doesn’t mean she will sell. Her and Monica are in the same boat as Ashanti. I’m a fan of all of them so please don’t act like one has an advantage over the other. Ashanti is singed to a label that will support her the most because she OWNS it. Monica and Brandy are just another R&B chick singed to the same label hoping to get the promo first. 🙂 Don’t come for her ok.

    I’m a huge Ashanti fan and I am happy to see that u seem to be one too. But please don’t come in here insulting using words like f****** and H** infected etc… Ur making Ashanti fans looking ignorant and this I say because u sound ignorant talking like that. One Ashanti fan can represent all so please do not do that. It’s like calling a black person a “muthafuk*n n*****” . Two different terms but same level of insult if not worst. Dummy.

  43. KAT February 1, 2012

  44. KAT February 1, 2012

    I totally agree with platinum dreams ashanti has made history already something that your favorite artists are still trying to do no one has been able to top her accomplishments this girl is in the book of world records for god sakes i dnt care wat nobody say this girl is the best if you wanna see how much she has accomplished google her and compare her to your favorite artist dont worry ill wait (waits…………………………….) exactlyl lol your favorite artist is no match for the princess love ya ashanti

  45. Dr No February 6, 2012

    I cant believe people love to see failure over success. This is why this country is so f*****. Ya’ll will stay on a blogsite voicing a non factor of an opinion on an artist you HATE? How does that even sound? Lifeless. These chicks make more money than most would ever make in your “great computer fantasy life” Ashanti is KNOWN for hit records, s*** its in the book of records! Rihannas a great artist, just one step away from a gimmick & Beyonce is SUPER talented but lacks realness that she used to have then lost due to the fact that shes overrated. Ashanti’s new song is a breath of fresh air because when a Rihanna or this day Bey song comes on I hold my breath &I change the station. Ashanti’s song peaks #66 after 2 weeks official promo with a video on the way. She’ll see that #1 at this rate. People need to stop comparing because ALL these chicks are spendin BANK TOGETHER laughin at dumb arguments like these. Im done. Ashanti go ahead you got a guaranteed 5 albums bought right here from mea because your a quality top notch b*tch!!

  46. Dr No February 6, 2012

    & PS dont speak on anybodys post but YOUR fave because you putting them against a 30+ million albums sold talent with 3 #1 multiplatinums & only ONE underselling album thats no where near flop. The words Ashanti & flop cant even go together because its unheardof like Beyonce singing like a Rihanna. New generation dont know S***. Thats why music needs to be saved by Shan, Brand, & Mo. Quit being retarded.
