Ashanti – ‘Good Good’ Video

Published: Wednesday 16th Jul 2008 by Sam

The video for Ashanti’s brand new single ‘Good Good’ premiered today. Directed by Melina, the video (which for some reason turned out exactly how I envisioned it lol) is great! Quirky, different and generally not your standard R&B clip, this is arguably one of the better videos to come out this year IMO. Tidbit: Nelly makes a cameo, which is sure to get tongues wagging.

What do you think of the video?

    sam, you must be out of your damn mind if you think this is one of the best videos of 2008!!!!!

    what the hell??! are we watching the same damn thing? why does it look like its unfinished? the background of each scene is just black. it looks like someone forgot to add the green screen!

    I’m sorry, but i think i saw you say something in regards to mariah’s video ‘i’ll be lovin’ u long time’ and it wasnt great, but you think ashanti’s video is? thats just insane to me. i’m really starting to think twice about your taste and judgement.

    This is the wackest video I have ever seen in my damn life. I also feel like the director stole some ideas from christina aguilera, and kelis.

    Just my opinion.

  4. AaronMichael July 16, 2008

    Bland video for a very bland song. Stuff like this shows exactly why her album flopped. Nothing new…

Looks like she had fun and the video go right with the song!! Great job. Man she is the sexiest chick in the game handz down!!! Get that album also!! It’s hot!! Hataz get off her nuts….

    Yay Im so glad Melina did the video. The song isn’t the BEST choice for a single, but Im glad to see Ashanti making the best out of it all. THe video’s ‘Stepford Wife’ concept really does capture the song very well. I like it and it makes me like the song a lot more. Great job!

  20. Kendra July 16, 2008

    I like it its different. Haters are going to be haters. Props to Ashanti

  21. SamIsA… July 16, 2008

    Sam, if this was Rihanna, you gay ass would hate it! This is the WORST video of the year, f*** you talkin’ ’bout ? This is like a damn fifty dollar budget. WACK, WACK, WACK!

    Sam, your opinion is garbage and you obviously have the worst taste ever.

  22. Tiffany July 16, 2008

    The video is really cute. I like it. A colorful I Love Lucy, if you will. To the people that dislike Ashanti. It’s one thing to not be into certain artist music. It’s one thing to have an opinion. It’s another when you just atteck her and her work for no reason. A lot of you have animosity and negativity for that woman, for no reason at all.

    It’s one thing to call something wack. It’s another when you go beyond what’s called for, just to say you dont like something. It’s really sad that some of you, have so much hatred, for a woman who has done nothing to anybody, but pick up a microphone.

    This just shows me, some of you are very miserable people. The funny thing is, let this be Beyonce or any other “well-liked” artist, that dropped this same video. You all would be singing it a million praises.

  23. Anonymous July 16, 2008

    Why are y’all hating on Sam for his opinion…everybody’s head is not stuck up Rihanna’s ass OK! What’s so cheap about the video…I’m sure it cost more to make then some of the s*** y’all own! I’m glad she did something different and had fun while doing it; you would think people would get tired of the same ole videos! Sam please say that like Rihanna’s next video so these babies will stop crying…I like Rihanna but it’s not that serious!

    All The Hater Can Shut Down on Da Real… Ashanti Killed It Again… And the album is on Point… She is doin her thing in 08 and I dont care what no one has to say… She killed it point blank… and Everybody is just hating because she rocked it and nobody wants to give her credit… THE DECLARATION!!!

  25. DJ Triumph July 16, 2008

  26. TRENT July 16, 2008

    WOW I LOVE THIS VIDEO SO MUCH AND ASHANTI LOOKS SO HOTT I’M REALLY FEELIN THIS HAPPY TO SEE UR MAN IN THE VIDEO

  27. Anonymous July 16, 2008

    Uhhhh Sam continue to voice your opinion. It’s amazing how mad some people are at YOUR OPINION.

    Anyway, I daydreamed throughout the video…it kinda turned into background music. Very very bland.

    A Summer Smash!!!! Great Video. Match the concept very well!!! Man Ashanti got hataz, so ain’t no use to arguing wit dem! This is her year! She dropping dat fire once again!!! I never pictured her doing a video like this but with her personality, I’m not surprise. Nelly lucky to have doze good goods!!!

  30. Ms-Linda July 16, 2008

    Sam continue doing what you are doing I agree with you a very nice video and look for ashanti I’ve never thought of her trying to act/be like beyonce as some of the retards say I dont know why everyones has to be constantly compared to her these women are trying to do their own thing too let them breathe damn!!

    If you dont like Sams thoughts why even waste time typin a response? Go somewhere else… like somebody else said most of yall are miserable and need to get a damn life getting all bent out of shape over one persons opinion.. DO YOU WORK FOR RIHANNA DO YOU EVEN KNOW HER? if not I see no reason for yall to act like someones talkin about your damn MOM

    Amyways GOOD look for Ashanti I aint mad and for all ya’ll people shoutin about FLOPS heres some info ya might wanna know RIHANA FIRST AND SECOND ALBUMS WERE BY NO MEANS A HIT SO THAT MAKES HER 1-3 BEYONCES GROUP DESTINYS CHILDS VERY 1ST ALBUM FLOPPED FOR SURE, THIS MAYBE BE ASHANTIS LOWEST ALBUM SALES BUT SHES HAD PLENTY OF HITS THAT I’M SURE SHES NOT LOSING SLEEP AT NIGHT SO BE FOR REAL

  31. Anonymous July 16, 2008

    Ashanti ugly? Ashanti, a hood rat? Ok, I’ve heard of haters being mad, but there’s nothing ugly or hood rat about Ashanti at all. It’s one thing to not like the woman’s music. But to take that overboard into straight negativity, is something totally different.

    Don’t go there about the song being sexual, or about how good her good good is. Plenty of your favorite female singers coo and whine on record, about how good their snap is. So do’t critisize her for that.

  32. ND July 17, 2008

    OMG I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!

    I ACTUALLY SCREAM ‘I LOVE THIS’ WITH EXCITEMENT WITHIN THE FIRST 10 SECONDS….

    NO… I LOVE THIS…. YA’LL NEED TO BUY ASHANTI’S ALBUM, SERIOUS!

  33. Anonymous July 17, 2008

    Yo this video is off da chain. Totally did not expect this from Ashanti. I’m really not a fan of hers but she brought it. I absolutely adore the beginning where Nelly comes out dress in a suit and Ashanti with rolls in her hair. The video was very good.

  34. Devonte July 17, 2008

    Ashanti does have that GOOD GOOD, DAMN!

  40. Asia July 17, 2008

    The point of a blog is to voice your own OPINION on your OWN motherfucking blog why the f*** are you getting mad because he like a motherfucking video…you mad because he like one artist and not the next….SOOOO WHAT…. people are just sad and catty and find anything just to b**** about.
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR OPINION Sam…i agree with you

    –dont argue with me it’s my OPINION

  41. Anonymous July 17, 2008

    Sam’s comment is on point. Ashanti’s video is simple and quirky and funny. Which makes it stand out. All of you people who are sayin that if Rihanna or Bey or Mariah made the video that Sam would hate are wrong. It just happens that Mariah makes the same music videos with every album release (just a different, but similar song), Bey’s are just your average everyday video (they only stand out cuz it’s Bey) and Rihanna’s are boring (except for S.O.S and Umbrella). The problem here is that if Rihanna, Bey or Mariah made the video, then all you haters would love it.

  42. KNOX July 17, 2008

    WTF….4 A GOOD SONG LIKE THAT i EXPECTED SOMETHIN BETTER ITS ONE OF THOSE VIDS I WATCH ONCE AND THATS IT…DONT KNOW IF SHE WAS TRYNA B FUNNY OR S***,DIDNT DO MUCH 4 ME TWAS S***!!!BEST VID OF THE YEAR…..LOL,NAH PLAYA!

  45. Anonymous July 17, 2008

    This can’t be the best video of 2008… There’s simply no way to compare it with Mariah’s “Touch My Body” and especially “I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time” videos…

    NOOOOO WAAAAAAAYYYY……..

    Mariah’s videos are really FUNNY and so HOT, HOT, HOT!!! And this one’s NOT, NOT, NOT… 🙂 And the song is… Whatever…

    So, I am one of the biggest Beyonce fans…and couldn’t help but notice..this post/video/song is about ASHANTI! (damn, why people always got bring B or Rihanna into something)…the video IMO is different (yet distinctively Melina, who is a great director)…people hate for the most simple reasons…and take loyalty to one artist overboard…I LIKE ANYONE WHO IS DOING THEIR THING…and Ashanti most certainly is doing hers…haters stay in your lane lol

  47. AaronMichael July 17, 2008

    Please people, let’s not mistake facts for hating.

    Facts: Her album flopped, This is not the hottest video of 2008, the song is not a hit or #1 single material.

    Other facts: Yes she is pretty, but pretty doesn’t sell albums, hot songs do.

  48. Anonymous July 17, 2008

    The video and the song are definitely hot

  49. ND July 17, 2008

    THIS VIDEO IS SO BANGING IT MADE ME LATE FOR WORK THIS MORNING!!! AND WHY AM I BACK AGAIN TO WATCH ASHANTI DO HER TING! SHE IS ON FIRE AND I LOVE IT!!!

    F**K THE HATERS…

    PLEASE SOME1 ANSWER, WHO THE HELL HAS DONE THIS BEFORE?

    They overdid this! She tries too hard. I get the concept, it could have been cute…it’s not

  52. ashly July 17, 2008

    Ashanti is amazing in this video. She is difnitely making it rain for the jealous haters on this blog.

  53. Anonymous July 17, 2008

    AaronMichael, you’re not saying any facts. You’re just saying opinions. Like everyone else here.

    1. So what her album didn’t blow off top. Numbers never determine quality of music. She’s not the only artist to ever have a moderate success period in her career. Nor is she the first to have what people consider a flop album. What are you going to say, when your current favorite artist catch their brick and their moderate point in their career? You’re not going to be a fan anymore. You’re going to throw them under the bus too. I’ll tell you why. Everybody is fickle these days, when it comes to music, and fans aren’t real fans amymore. Once your favorite artist hits that rock. You’re going to jump the bandwagon, to what the industry says is the next hottest thing.

    2. So what if people call it the best video of 2008. IT’S THEIR OPINION, AND THEY’RE ALLOWD TO HAVE IT. You don’t have to agree, but again, what do our comments on blogs matter. The video will still be played, no matter what you think of it.

    3. When did you become an expert on what will become a hit and what won’t? What if it does? Then what? Too many times, people use their “personal” preference and taste, just because you don’t like it, you feel everybody else won’t. Again, what if it does? BTW, there’s been plenty of artist with number 1 hits all over the place. But they still flopped like a fish out of water. So you can’t say what’s going to be a hit or not.

  54. knox July 18, 2008

    Uh 4 those who say it looks like they had a $500 budget,I think they did coz dat Album didnt sell s***…lol!!!

  55. Anonymous July 18, 2008

    @ Anonymous who set AaronMichael straight, I love it you are so on point. And since we are stating opionions their are alot of people who are hot with garbage ass music. The real music was left in the 70, 80s, and 90s

  56. Nay Nay July 18, 2008

    I think Ashanti looked cute in the video. it’s not the best but it definitley is no where near the worse. Whatever happened to your interview with babygirl anyway?

  57. mlms July 19, 2008

    I LOVE IT.

  58. Ms-LInda July 19, 2008

    @ Anonymous who set AaronMichael straight I couldnt have typed it better myself you are so correct in what you have said peole come up here alot of times and state their opinions as if they are facts and i am so glad you broke his/her ass down and the same goes for the beyonce comparisons she wasnt the first nor will she be the last person to do the “s***” thing
