New Song: Ashanti – ‘I Got It (Ft Rick Ross)’

Published: Tuesday 26th Nov 2013 by David

Days before she’s set to wow audiences in Lifetime‘s ‘Christmas in the City’, R&B Queen Ashanti continues on in her bid for independent success with ‘I Got It’, featuring Rick Ross!

Though it does make for a ‘nice’ listen, the number lacks the ‘premium’ feel that once saw the performer give Beyonce a run for her money (see summer of 2003).

Instead, what Ashanti offers up is mix tape worthy material, far beneath than act who once stood at the forefront of her genre and – for a short but sweet time- Pop culture.

Will you like it?

    Could Future give Ashanti an urban hit? Ashanti please collaborate with Nicki Minaj.

  9. Santana November 26, 2013

    I realize that every time Ashanti does something, this is the only site that always throw shade her way. All the others sites say positive things about Ashanti.

    Ashanti!! You did this!! This song is fire!! Although I did like the leaked version with Future better, Rick Ross did his thing too!! I purchased this single 10 times already and I’m gifting it to some others. Ashanti! You ROCK!!! Princess of R&B & Hip Hop!!

    Girl your a Ciara fan so don’t even try it.

  11. shay November 26, 2013

    I already knew this was going to be a BS review full of shade. It must suck to be you.


    Love it!!

  12. ILUVREALMUSIC November 26, 2013

    Sam I hope you don’t try to interview her while she’s in London with all the shade you throw. Don’t be fake be real you say it on your site say it in her face. The same way. 🙂

  13. Iconic Rihanna November 26, 2013

    fraudyonce has no single though she is scared.

    • XoMoDe November 26, 2013

      Beyoncé is hiding her single in Rihanna’s gigantic forehead.

  14. Michael November 26, 2013

    I’m sorry, but this is a solid effort from miss ashanti. She sounds beautiful and the final verses are fire. This site always throws unnecessary shade.

  15. Keri Krew Kween November 26, 2013

    Love love loving it!! Ashanti has never failed! I need her to get a proper team together and promote! Kiiii @ Cierror stans trying it when Ashanti has always sold more than Cierror

  16. Truth November 26, 2013

    I wish she would s*** or get off the pot. She keeps on coming out with these half decent songs every 6 months, but does nothing with them. Just take the damn 360 deal and get on with it. The frustrating part is that I actually wouldn’t mind an Ashanti comeback, but she has no idea what she’s doing.

  17. Trinarockstarr November 26, 2013

    This is hot Ashanti did it with this one love it.

  18. TREBOI November 26, 2013

    YES ASHANTI!!!! I Love it

  19. Super Cisus November 26, 2013

    Not Ashitti stans coming for ci how long this b**** album been pushed back?

  20. Khaseem November 26, 2013

    Sam is the biggest hater ever, this song is fire. Good Job Ashanti. I need some promotion behind this. This girl still s*** and that was a smooth s*** track right there!

  21. Ciarastan November 26, 2013

    I was going to give Averageanti props until I saw her stan coming for Ciara Princess Harris. Flop.

  22. Slick Rick November 26, 2013

    This site truly has no ear for music. Why put beyonce in this? She has people write her song, producers make her songs with none of her input. Ashanti writes her own songs, gets in the studio work with the producer to get it right and then works with the other artist featured to smash it out. This site will forever praise beyonce but yet they were so quick to call this a mixtape track but yet wasnt beyonces grown woman just a tv ad track? get the f*** outta here. there is NOTHING like this on the radio.

  23. the gypsy life November 26, 2013

    This was dope.

  24. Navy Nick November 26, 2013

    I still got love for Ashanti, but her time is up. All the girls should make a joint R&B cd, 2 songs each, and do a R&B girls TOUR together, do a lot of their old stuff, and just entertain us that way…SHE WAS HARD BACK THEN!

  25. Santana November 26, 2013

    And how many of Ci-Errors album has flopped? ALL but one! SIT DOWN BOO!!


  26. b November 26, 2013

    im not an Ashanti fan but YASSSSSS b****! A hot ass video and she could get a urban smash!

  27. Queen B*Rocka November 26, 2013

    Brandy Norwood is QUEEN

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) November 26, 2013

      This is about Ashanti though…

  28. Iluvrealmusic November 26, 2013

    I’m sorry how many times did Ciara push her album back? Oh yea. Um how much did she sell with a major label? At least Ashanti is doing it independent so its harder for her. What is Ci doing besides following Future? Ashanti is gearing up for two shows in London and preimering a movie on Iifetime. And Ciara is doing?

    I like Ci tho but don’t come for Ashanti becuase they are in the same boat.

  29. Iluvrealmusic November 26, 2013

    @slickrick the site never said nothing about Beyonce so YOU stop the comparsing because its looks silly. Two totally different artist with two different approaches of creating music.

    Also @NavyNick R&B artist do it for the passion they have for music not for fame and sells like the Queen of your Navy. No shade though what she does is cool.

    • Slick Rick November 26, 2013

      Nah YOU should stop trolling… I am a huge Ashanti Fan. I support her to the death. I was meaning that this site makes it seem like Ashanti’s career ended in 2003 and that she hasnt put out anything great since then and beyonce has. In no way do I think Beyonce has been putting out premium music (look at Diva, Bow Down) she may hit and misses but Ashanti has never been given the praise for her amazing vocal improvement or her song writing skills. Ashanti has been consistence but since she hasnt been putting out what is current in music then people think she is irrelevant. Ashanti has dabbled in different styles of music but she always stuck with what is her style. a sweet voice over a heavy hip hop beat. People need to remember she is doing this independently and from her passion and that is what I love from her

  30. Nicki Minaj November 26, 2013

    Why you coming for Diva and Bow Down while Ashanti have Good Good and Switch in her discography? *Plays Rather Die Young*

  31. JLOVER November 26, 2013

    Won’t chart ANYWHERE

  32. wes November 26, 2013

    THE QUEEN IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) November 26, 2013

    What I’ve learned to do is not even read TGJ reviews or comments BEFORE listening to anything cause I like Ashanti and I think she slayed the track. Is it her best? No, but this is really good compared to what’s she’s put out lately and a nice R&B track overall. I need to plug in my speakers to really hear how this sounds cause I’m hoping it comes harder than it sounds on my laptop. But again, Ashanti’s vocal were good on this track! Well done Ashanti! Now don’t let this momentum die, keep promoting

  34. princekels November 26, 2013

    Flop they could’ve gave this to ci-error

    • Santana November 27, 2013

      Lol. And it would’ve still flopped!! Please SIT!! HEr whole album flopped! floppydy flop! There’s a whole shelf full still in my local walmart…

  35. Casual November 26, 2013

    This is good but not the essential come back hit Asanti needs. Stylistically, it was on point and the production suited her perfectly.

  36. Michael November 26, 2013

    This song is actually the best I’m heard from her in a WHILE…. Finally someone produced her a radio hit. Hopefully the rest of the songs she releases are up to par.

    THis is just a very poor quality audio rip.. SHe needs to release the HQ version.

  37. sorry, Im Booked November 26, 2013

  44. Scuse Me B**** November 27, 2013

    Why is TGJ trying to act all godly and above water over this track?? It’s a solid, catchy radio record that falls under URBAN MUSIC…Might I remind you all that TGJ is supposed to be a URBAN MUSIC BLOG?? So this is the music TGJ are supposed to be backing…not standing on a pedestal throwing clear shade at an high board artist who is now working under her own INDEPENDENT Written Entertainment Imprint…Get your priorities together SAM.

  45. Nicki Minaj November 27, 2013

    How many come back songs does she have to put out. She gave ya’ll Never Should Have, Never Too Far Away, The Woman You Love, That’s What We Do feat. R. Kelly and now this. That’s 4 songs already.

  46. TheOuyonB November 27, 2013

    Sam and his “nice/nasty” shade. So much for non-biased journalism…

  47. Always on Time November 27, 2013

    Catchy, Simple, and fresh sound from Ashanti, Nice duet this could go far will a strong visual concept for performances and video.

    I would suggest a Indian or ethnic theme to the video.

    Ashanti is always the RNB Queen but she needs to get herself a record label as they have expertise and models that work.

  48. GOOD GOOD November 27, 2013

    So true.

    Atleast it can be said she is not giving head to everyone in the illuminati gang ahem Beyonce. Beyonce is mediocre when was her last no.1? exactly.

    I think artists like Ashanti, Christina Aguilera, Mya so underrated.

  49. Joseph Apai December 17, 2013

    I love Ricky Ross and he is the At all but expecting him in South Sudan to ft Artist like Rocky J, Mr. Length and WJ for better music we stand Rick Ross My best Artist all over the World

  50. Joseph Apai December 17, 2013

    Rich Ross the man to entertain people on the stage
