Hot Shots: Ashanti Shoots ‘I Got It’ Video

Published: Friday 17th Jan 2014 by Sam

Ashanti certainly embodies the title of her long-delayed new album ‘Braveheart’.

For, despite the endless push-back’s causing interest to evaporate, the Grammy winner continues to play on – this week shooting the video for the LP’s latest “lead single” ‘I Got It (ft. Rick Ross)’. 

At this point, the whole project just feels like “struggle”, as we wonder why she continues to repeat the pattern of randomly throwing a song on iTunes, rarely/never sending them to radio, and then shooting a  video months later. It really doesn’t take a genius to understand that such practice will likely never allow momentum to sustain.

Again, the independent route is not for everyone. We’ve been saying this for the longest, but the ‘Baby’ singer would have been much better off pairing her independent hustle with a major label to benefit from the best of both worlds. She clearly needs the infrastructure of a bigger entity. Because, at this stage, ‘Braveheart’ has been handled so shockingly on her watch that she’d be better off releasing it as a free mixtape.

Anyway, enough of the ranting, peep more pics from the shoot below…

    I love Ashanti… God knows I do, however she continuously diminishes her legacy this way. The main problem being, that she keeps saying the album is coming soon every 3 months to no avail. Furthermore, I understand her trying to maximize your profit by selling individual “lead singles”, instead she should just release a free mixtape online (Promote it like Cassie did…get a hot DJ to host it) and reconnect with her fans. Not to mention she is one of the dopest lyricist in the game, why not try to write for other artist like she did at the start of her career (and I mean write it with the actual person in mind, not something that she originally wrote for herself)

    Ashanti has one of the baddest *NATURAL* bodies in the biz. This song isn’t my cup of tea, but I wish her much success. People tend to forget how she was the R&B “it” girl from 2002-2005.

  12. Touché January 17, 2014

    I agree, she should be a song writer again because she always seems lost when it comes to her new indie projects. I mean I get that she doesn’t what to be a signed artist to a major record label but why miss out on the easy money you can make with your songwriting talents.

    That hair is terrible!

  18. Jasmine January 17, 2014

    I love Ashanti, i really do. But it just seems as if female singers are trying to outdo each other with who can be the sluttiest. She has an amazing body, but wth girl, she needs to believe in herself and in her talent. She doesn’t have to cheapen herself, or be what people call ”s***.”
