New Song: Machel Montano & Ashanti – ‘The Road’

Published: Monday 28th Jan 2019 by Rashad

Though already deep into putting the finishing touches on her long-awaited new album (due this year), Grammy-winning singer Ashanti is still making moves across the board by lending her signature sound to other artists’ projects.  The latest to be graced with the 38-year-old’s charming coo is Soca superstar Machel Montano.

The cut, titled ‘The Road,’ was co-written by Ashanti, Montano, Jovan James and producer Travis World.  Featured on his forthcoming album, Montano says the tune was originally intended for Rihanna but the Murder Inc. songstress won the part.  The result?  ‘Road’ rose to #1 on iTunes reggae charts just a day after its release.

Now, ahead of the release of its official music video, its lyric video can be found inside:

      Rihanna doesn’t do music anymore she’s working on her furniture line

    I wish Ashanti would just go on and sign with a record label. She has so much potential and it shines on songs like this but the independent label thing has STALLED her career. She needs investors!

    • AnonymousTruth January 28, 2019

      I agree . She has no momentum by herself . Drops a song … drops the video a year later …. doesn’t drop a follow up . She needs a machine behind her .

      TROLLmine I AGREE! You should sign her to your label #SidePonyRecords. I’m sure with all you aCUUUUUUMMin you could truly help her out

    IMO Ashanti is a better live vocalist then Rihanna, she just has good songs that most of us have liked to hear. Ashanti always has sung other folks songs better than her own…??‍♂️

    The song is fire! I wish Ashanti the best. Her last three albums have been pretty good. She is still hot af and has more charisma than the new chicks. Guess she really needs a label. But she won’t get a good deal, so I doubt that she‘d go that route

    The Vybze this song creates is infectious. Machel is ah boss. He is undisputably the King of Soca. Ashanti’s melodious voice added to Machel’s passion and energy makes this song truly awesome

    Cant wait to see Ashanti and Marshael perform that tune live, Ashanti should come to Trinidad for Marshael Monday one of the biggest Carnival shows of Trinidad & Tobago
