Ashanti Talks New Album & Being Her Own Boss On ‘TRL’

Published: Saturday 2nd Dec 2017 by Sam

Ashanti is back and strutting the promo trail to trumpet her return.

The Grammy winner looked all sorts of coordinated on her latest stop, MTV’s TRL. 


There, the 36-year-old chatted it up with host D.C Young Fly about new single ‘Say Less’ featuring Ty Dolla $ign and its housing album – due next year.

The as yet untitled set, which follows 2015’s ‘Braveheart,’ will be more personal according to ‘Shanti.

She also opened up about the necessity of being her own boss and running her label Written Entertainment. 

Peep the interview below…

We’ll always have time for Ms. Douglas and feel she has more left in the tank than people give her credit for.

We’re just hopeful that she has a better infrastructure in place for the roll-out of this album compared to the last. Because being one’s own boss is cute only if it yields the right results. Time will tell.

Your thoughts?

      • BAM ! December 3, 2017

        She can’t sing??? lol YOU can’t do better than her so… bye 😉

    Being Independent is great when everything is properly configured so far this has not worked for Ashanti, hopefully she considers doing a joint venture or a distribution deal for future releases I think this will be a better fit for her. But I wish her continued blessings and success.

      i Would think if it wasn’t working for her she would’ve stopped a long time ago. Something must be going right… my opinion. 🤷🏿‍♂️

    She looks amazing

  4. Meme December 2, 2017

    Legit question. Like who are these chicks trying to appeal to? You’re too old for the new kids to know who you are and your music/image is not in line with your core fanbase age.

    Advice: take your ole azs back to the drawing board. Try to make age appropriate music and classy up your image a bit. You’re way too ole to be doing this mess.

    • Cough Cough December 2, 2017

      Ashanti’s core fan base is mid-late 20’s early 30’s… her image is spot on. How can I be so off st everything lol

      • Meme December 2, 2017

        Lies, Ashanti core fans are 30+.

        I was 15 when Ashanti was at her core and every one 15-25 at the time loved her. I am now 30, which mean those people are 30-45. Her music and image is completely off. I’m not saying you have to be a grand ma but it’s a reason why people were throwing money at her at her show. She’s trash.

        I just turned 29 and love Ashanti style and swag. She is like the same age group as beyonce. Not sure of her real age at the moment but, she’s cute and appealing. That’s that libra charm!

      • Your Name December 2, 2017

        I’m 27, and Ashanti was hot when I was in middle school up until early high school. You’re right. Her core fan base (or whats left) is pushing 30, or in the 30 and over club.

  7. Your Name December 2, 2017

    Ashanti is stale, stale, stale. Her voice is excruciating and her music is dated. Her new single is awful and if it’s a taste of what to come, then she will flop again for the umpteenth time. #JustKeepingItReal

    • Livefortomorrow December 2, 2017

      Shut yo ole ru paul inspired f***** ass up, only thing stale is yo momma p****.

      • Your Name December 2, 2017

        But he’s so right, you’re just a dumb ass b*tch 🙂 it’s not all we got, it’s the only thing that you deserve 😀

  8. Mateo December 2, 2017

    …may I add, age ain’t nothing but a number. Check her IG, she looks good in everything!

  9. DanYiel Iman December 2, 2017

    She sounds good doing other folks songs, but not her own…🤔

  10. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy December 2, 2017

    She looks like a Great Value Rihanna…especially the first PUMA pop up.
