Watch: Ashanti Performs ‘I Got It’ Live On ‘The Queen Latifah Show’

While it’s unlikely to ever reach levels touched its predecessors, Ashanti continues to push on with the promotion of new album ‘Braveheart’, taking the project to the ‘Queen Latifah Show‘ today!

Hoping to push its sales with a performance of ‘I Got It‘, the one-time ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ actress rocked the stage armed with two backing dancers and a pre-recorded vocal that worked harder than she did.

Not sure what we mean?

Watch below…

Though we commend Shan for rocking out on a dance front, one has to wonder why she spent more time playing dancer than singer in this performance.

Problematic, considering the execution of her choreography seemed ‘heavy’ at times, more rigid than it was fluid, and lacking the free flowing nature the cut’s production called for.

On a positive tip, there’s no doubt her continued support of the album will see it enjoy a lengthy run on iTunes R&B, but if ‘Scars’ continues to gather dust on the album’s track list, boasting an appeal far wider than the club-ready ‘Got It.’

Your thoughts?

    When will the song impact charts tho?

  2. christinastherealtalent April 9, 2014

    Ashanti needs to perform some new songs from the album. If she were to do Scars, She Can’t or even a remix to No Where, people may just generate some interest in the album

    This song is terrible lmao. She needs to move on to the next single ASAP!

    Rotfl!

    Who ever choreographed this performance is trying to sabotage the remainder that is left of Ashanti’s career. The movement does not work well with her curvaceous body. She’s too thick and it comes off as amateur, tacky, and unpolished.

    Never cared for this song. But, Rain on me, baby, and foolish my s***.

    Ashanti reminds me of a part of my young adulthood coming of age I will always hold dear and that’s where I choose to leave her and remember her fondly at. Good day.

    crying @ 0:50, what was she trying to give? how did she manage to even get worse as a performer. and y’all had the nerve to compare her to YouKnowWho back in the day. smh

    • Yea ok April 9, 2014

  10. coolness April 9, 2014

    Girl, NO! This is the Queen Latifah show not 106 & Park! Yeah, congrats on getting them moves but Ashanti, you’re not a dancer. This looked kinda embarassing. I love and wish her all the best but she should’ve sang something else like Scars or something. Ugh.

  11. Iconic Cici April 9, 2014

    Garbage performer.

  12. Sarah April 9, 2014

    Too much emphasis on choreography..and she got caught lipping on too many occasions..However she looked great..and im still rooting for her success!

  14. Touché April 9, 2014

    Cute but she needs to work on her dancing. It looked very awkward at certain points. Anyways, she looks gorgeous as usual.

  16. Ciara QUEEN Harris April 9, 2014

    Where’s Ashton Kutcher? Am I being punkd? Ashitti is the worst!!!

  17. Tiffany Xelia Jackson April 9, 2014

    Po’thang! She is so pretty but thats as far as it goes. Her dancing was terrible & those THIN WEAK vocals she be serving aint about nothin’… She had her time during the early 00’s but after Beyonce domination began (solo) her career slowly faded along with her friends careers (Ja Rule, Nelly & Murder Inc).

    She made another album full of forgettable songs & weak vocals. Aint nobody gonna remember this era at all. She should just become an writer/producer for some of these “so called” artist. She will not survive in this Rihanna/Beyonce world. Her outfit was a bit tacky too. And her hair/make up was a mess. But thats just my opinion.

  18. Blacksista April 9, 2014

    Ashanti should be a f****** shame of herself. For all the fans out there that supported her independent venture and go hard for her. That was the laziest, stiffest, b******* performance I have ever seen.

  19. J KING April 9, 2014

    SHE TRIED IT. BABY GIRL NEEDS TO MOVE ON. NEXT SINGLE. NEXT ALBUM. NEXT LIFE!

    SHE BEE LOOKING LIKE A LIL KIM PRE-SURGERIES.

    COME ON BABY GIRL! YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT!

  20. phillydoinit April 9, 2014

    She stumbled…girl quit dancing!!

  21. Marcus April 10, 2014

    What is she supposed to do? Just stand there? Hell, not even Whitney did that!

  22. Navy Commander(Al Sheikh ABeech) April 10, 2014

    Chile if you gonna focus more in dancing than singing at least dance girl! She tried it to the fullest . And then she smiles while she was doing it like she was slaying! Girrrrlrllllll no! Who choreographed this?

  23. Casual April 10, 2014

    The choreography and performance were fine. But on the real, this single and Scars sound like good album cuts. Neither is a breakout single, and neither will be a hit.

    A big label’s machine and money can only get one so far. Many major label artists flop with bigger promo budgets than Ashanti’s. She needs a breakout hit. I think First Real Love is that song.

    I know Early in the Morning did better on iTunes, but I think First Real Love has more potential, b/c it has a younger and more radio-friendly sound. There’s a whole generation of record buyers who have aged into the market since Ashanti came out, and they are definitely NOT checking for a woman whose career peaked 10 years ago. First Real Love could get Ashanti some interest beyond her natural fan base.
