Hot Shot: Ashanti Sparkles In New Promo Pic

Published: Friday 16th Sep 2011 by Sam

It’s been more than 3 years since Ashanti released new music – and much longer since she topped a chart. Yet one could be forgiven for thinking it’s 2002 all over again – after a glance at her latest promotional pic.

For, the R&B stunner looks a million bucks in a diamond encrusted ensemble, no doubt the centre-piece of the Robert Ector shot.

Now independent (and signed to her own label, Written Entertainment), Ms. Douglas would be well-advised to continue to keep serving up ‘premium’ on an image and music tip, as even major label acts are finding the ‘grind’ harder than ever in the current musical climate. And we’re not sure her latest effort, soundtrack cut ‘Never Too Far Away’, is a step in the right direction.

Your thoughts?

    She looks gorgeous! And “Never Too Far Away” is only the soundtrack to the movie “Dream House” and it still is an amazing song. Cant wait for her to put out her 1st official single off this album!!! #teamashanti

  10. I’ma have to send her back to her maker September 16, 2011

    @Hillz actually britney wasn’t wearing any clothes in that scene. That was diamonds covering her to give people the illusion she had something on.

    Ashanti looks nice…. however in order to make her a hit again

    1. Vocal coach (She needs to get a vocal coach bad)
    2. Star Power, She needs to be able to work a stage and not just stand there and rub her hair and move her hands every where.
    3. A Part II of “Only U” as a first single and a video along those lines to match the sexiness
    4. A follow up banger like “Rock With Me (Aw baby)
    4. A Small solid album of 10-11 songs
    5. Promo
    6. A more Pop/R&B sound to make her top the billbord charts.
    7. Media taining 101 She sucks with that
    8. A New Stylest (Judging by the picture above she’s done that. Great Pic)
    9. Work Ethic
    10. A NEW FANBASE because her stans suck… how are you gonna be a stan and Bootleg the album

    with all that and her beauty she will Be back on top………the R&B charts that is…… at least she’s charting….. She’ll be luck if she cracks top 20 on the Hot 100 charts….

    Ashanti looks beautiful and the song is good too!!:)

  16. Dudy September 16, 2011

    Ashanti is a very talented singer unlike Rihanna and Ciara who urgently need a voice coach.

  17. AlstonsWorldEnt September 16, 2011

    Looks like Tyler has a master plan for Ashanti…..Hmmm people and their damn opinions about other people careers. What do you do for a living? You pullin in the same bucks as her? Ashanti was smart to get this song out first and create buzz for herself. Plus it’s attached to a major hollywood picture!!! Hmmmm…Do I smell ROYALTY CHECKS!!!!She gettin PAID b******!!!Are you?
