New Song: Ashanti – ‘Switch’ (ft. Nelly)

Published: Thursday 28th Jun 2007 by Sam
As Ashanti preps her new album ‘The Declaration’ (due for an October release), this new song featuring Nelly – apparently the lead single – has surfaced. I’m kinda thrown by this one; she went in a different direction with ‘Switch’ and I give her props for doing so. The song is pretty catchy – I’m liking the swagger in her delivery and Nelly’s feature on the hook. Having said that, I see the single either growing on the listener or tanking – no middle ground. It’s not that the track is poor, it has more to do with the feeling that Ashanti should come with something harder than this as a first single.

Hit or Miss?

    This is definitely a miss! She is just following a formula already prescribed for many other R&B artists… (The down, ghetto, & gangsta chick)

    BEAT SWAGG AND MELODY GREAT. LYRICS ARE SAME OLE SAME OLE.

    IN ALL I THINK IT’S GOOD. BUT THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS STILL HATING ON ANYBODY WHO IS NOT BEYONCE. I GUESS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF CIARA.

    Wussup y’all… yo this is just a joint that leaked (which isvery common these dayz, ya dig). Anywayz, it leaked LAST week or so.

    Not only that, just a couple of dayz ago on the BET Awards (Tues. Jun-26th-o7), Ashanti was interviewed after the show, and said she was puttin’ the finishing touches on her album — SHE and her record label are currently deciding on da (actual) FIRST SINGLE.

    btw… I’m really feelin’ this Website, y’all keep doin’ ya’ thang mayne (ya dig, 1ne).

    Hot song BUT NOT A FIRST SINGLE FOR A COMEBACK, MORE LIKE A SECOND OR THIRD.

    That does not sound like a beyonce song. I love it. It’s different for Shani. I can imagine it on alot of myspace pages. It’s suppose to be just a BUZZ song NOT A SINGLE…

    It took me only a second listen to realize I love it, it’s only a fun track, it’s clearly not meant to be deep. I respect Ashanti for trying something different, can’t wait for the album.

    We all need to support black music or else the labels will drop all of them! Stop downloading and buy the albums!!!!!!
