Ashanti's 'Declaration' Delayed
It has been confirmed that Ashanti’s much delayed new album ‘The Declaration’ has pushed back yet again. Originally set to drop late last year and then March this year, the set – the singer’s fourth – will now be released on June 3rd.
Though some may be thinking ‘it’s Mya all over again’, especially with Universal/Motown’s patchy record, I think it makes sense. With the inevitable chart invasion that will be Janet (Febraury) and Mariah (April), releasing a record in that window – if you’re not a guaranteed seller (sorry, Ashanti isn’t at present) would be too risque IMO. ‘The Way That I Love’ you has been received very well, so dropping another single before releasing the LP in June might be what the label are going for. Only time will tell…

Your thoughts?

    Interesting. T4P. If Ashanti and her peeps are delaying the release of Declaration to improve the album or to strategize furtherly on it’s promotion, then I’m fine with that and I’m sure you fans would be fine with that, too. However, if they’re simply pushing it back to aviod competion on the charts (with bigger artist) or to create higher anticipation, then that’s just stupid! It’s not only stupid, but it’s cowardly, pointless and ridiculous. (If you don’t know why then I’d be glad to tell you why.)

    Personally, I don’t care that much if it’s release in the winter, spring or summer. I’m not a fan of Ashanti, yet. I do love “The Way That I Love You”, it has great potential and it’s the best song I’ve ever heard from Ashanti. I just think she owes her fans some kind of anwsers to what’s going on. I wish her greater success!
