Hot Shot: Ashanti Unwraps ‘Braveheart’ Album Cover

R&B belle Ashanti seems to be playing Santa today; for after revealing the title and tentative tracklist for her sixth studio album,  ‘Braveheart’, the singer has followed with its official cover.

Between the braid and blue lipstick, it seems Ms. Douglas really channelled the LP’s title. No shade.

That said, we’re rooting for former INC star. Sadly stepping up her game when the majority turned their attention to the Beyonce‘s and Rihanna‘s of the world, she’s had an increasing uphill battle as of late; something I’m not sure her independent “situation” with Written Entertainment alleviates. I mean, for yours truly, there are some acts who are better suited to a major label situation – Ashanti being one of them.

Indeed, unlike many an unsigned act, Ja Rule‘s one-time comrade has enjoyed the dizzy heights of fame and has a talent that – if backed properly – could go toe to toe with the major label divas. However, now in a predicament which sees her trying to triangulate the financing, A&R, and promotion for her project alone, things are looking messy at best. Current single ‘The Woman You Love’ is doing all of nothing on the charts and  prospects aren’t looking great. That said, all it takes is that one hit. Here’s hoping ‘Braveheart’ is packing the heat when it hits stores on April 17th.
