Hot Shot: Ashanti Unveils Striking Single Cover

Published: Thursday 15th Dec 2011 by Sam


Ashanti is back!

As earlier reported, the R&B songstress is set to make another crack at the charts, opting this go round to go the independent route by way of her own label Written Entertainment.

The lead single from her first venture under the new model has been confirmed as the Busta Rhymes assisted ‘The Woman You Love’ – the cover of which surfaced today.

Needless to say ‘striking’ would be an understatement. Ms. Douglas looks stunning! Let’s hope the handling of the project embodies similar characteristics. For, while the independent route is hailed for cutting out the overheads and putting more coin in the artist’s pocket, Ashanti is -once again-tossing her hat into the ever-crowded market that is female R&B. As such, is mediocre chart success (in exchange for a bigger slice of the financial pie) sufficient when you’ll be measured against the likes of the Beyonce‘s and Rihanna‘s of the world? Whatever the case, it’ll be uber interesting to see how this plays out.

Your thoughts?

  11. VA STAND UP!! December 15, 2011

    She looks beautiful, she has always been really pretty and took nice pics. I guess with the new single and new album in the works we are gonna be seeing a lot more promotional pics from her. I’m only interested in the music though, seeing a bunch of pics isn’t gonna make me buy an album. So far I haven’t been impressed with what I’ve heard. I want to like her new song but I just can’t. It’s soo annoying to me. Busta didn’t help it at all. *shrugs*

    Good Luck to her anyways!

    Nice cover!

    I listened to her song and…well, that’s it.

    I don’t see it doing well on radio but I wasn’t impressed by “Motivation’ as well and look what happened.

    @VUYOZUCCH

    haha

    Why do the TGJ have to always mention beyonce and rihanna? Last time I checked Ashanti and Ciara albums went head to head in 2006. And Ciara won by selling 338,000 copies to ashanti’s 254,000. After Ashanti’s 2nd album she fell off.

    Her new song is not good at all, it will play on the radio BUT not a huge impact.

  15. BLAH December 16, 2011

  17. Neil December 16, 2011

    The pic is hot she s*** as hell

  18. …. December 16, 2011

    ummm Ashanti is just as much a “flop” as ciara! what sense does it make to put down 1 “flop” to boast another, when at-the-end-of-the-day…They BOTH “flops”??

    anyways cute pic of ashanti. eventho she looks dead… idk if that was the illusion they were going for but its cute… idk about her current music, but i do give her props for going the independent route…it says a lot to me about her hustle. when sh*t didnt workout with her lable, she took matters into her own hands..took control of her career, and kept it moving. i can dig it!! good luck.

  19. josh December 16, 2011

    She looks like alicia key in a beyonce costume…

  20. YOOSONDALOOSE December 16, 2011
