…we are craving new music from Ashanti. Are you working on a new album that we might get this year?
Ashanti: Oh, absolutely. I am so excited about my new music. I have been working with a couple of people. A lot of stuff in L.A. and my single is called “Lose Yourself.” It’s a very different sound for me, and I love it.
It’s urgent, and it was produced by Dre Moon & A1. They’ve done a lot of stuff for Chris Brown and Future. I am just super excited. Me and Ty Dolla $ign have a couple of records, me and Mustard have a couple of records, and I am working with J-Roc. He has done a lot with Timbaland and Justin Timberlake. There’s definitely some L.T. Hutton on the album, too. We’ve been working on some joints, and obviously he’s the man behind the All Eyez On Me movie. When I was over in Europe on tour, I played a snippet for the crowd and the reaction was just crazy.
