As at writing, Ashanti’s ‘Braveheart’ album currently sits at #17 on the iTunes tally.
So what better time than the present to hit the promo trail in a bid to give the LP (her first independent effort) a much-needed boost.
The Grammy winning singer took front-stage center on BET’s 106 & Park this week, where she offered up a medley of current single ‘I Got It’ and confirmed follow-up ‘First Real Love’.

Kudos where due, the former INC front-woman clearly is keen to serve up more than the “usual” – hence garners an “A” for effort.
That said, despite the super strides she’s made since her first choreographed outing (‘Only U’), there remains a lack of fluidity and/or confidence with how the choreo translates. It’s almost as if she’s counting the steps in her head (“1, 2, 3, pop…4, 5, 6 squat”). Certainly made for an uncomfortable watch and evidence, if anything, that not all acts necessarily need to burn up the dancefloor to make a statement.
Indeed, we’d much rather hear more of the leaps Ashanti has made as a live vocalist instead.
