Last week, Ashanti unveiled the name of her forthcoming LP, ‘Braveheart‘.
Releasing the project’s first video two nights ago, this week saw the star grace Philadelphia’s Power 99 for a truly insightful chit chat.
Get into their conversation below…
On the album,she explained:
The metaphor that I took was basically in the movie you have the Europeans, you have the soliders from London and the U.K.They have the big horses, they have the shields, the guns, the weapons… They’re all armored up. And then you have the Scots.
They’re all raggedy, homemade weapons, and paint on their faces. It’s not an even playing ground, so I feel like with the [major labels], they’re bossed up. They have the big engine and all the artists signed to them and with the indies, it’s depending. It’s homemade, it’s homegrown. It’s a lesser engine.
So the metaphor I was using was being brave and putting your blood and guts into it and fighting passionately to win.
Dishing on her work with Keyshia Cole, she revealed:
The record I have with her is dope. I love it.
