They may share little in common as far as career paths go, but R&B purveyor Ashanti and ‘Body Electric’ star Lana Del Rey both have their fans to thank for new commercial highs reached this week, with one rocking iTunes USA and the other seeing a timeless classic make fresh gains in a foreign market.
Full story below…
13 years after it was recorded by Atlantic’s Fat Joe, the rapper’s ‘What’s Luv?’ re-enters the UK’s ‘Official Singles Chart’ at #58, doing so with a little help from the aforementioned Ashanti, responsible for pushing it #4 on the very same chart in the year of its release (2002).
Joining her in celebrating her good news today is Lana Del Rey, whose new LP ‘Ultraviolence’ now sits at #5 on iTunes USA!
Important, as the project doesn’t drop until June 16th, but now claims the coveted spot thanks to pre-order sales generated in the US, currently outperforming Mariah Carey‘s May 27th release ‘Me.I Am Mariah..The Elusive Chanteuse (#26)’, and Beyonce’s December 2013 ‘Beyonce (#35).’
