Ashanti Eyes Summer 2019 For New Music Release

Published: Saturday 30th Mar 2019 by Rashad

It’s been four years since Ashanti (born Ashanti Douglas) braved the critics and competition with her last LP, ‘Braveheart,’ but now the R&B songstress says she’s putting the final touches on its long-awaited follow-up.

Nearly a year since releasing the set’s reported last single (the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted ‘Say Less’), the Grammy-winner is saying more about the tune’s parent album including its list of features, themes, and more.

Giving fans a clue as to when it will hit shelves, look inside to learn more about what the 38-year-old is cooking up:


Taking to our friends at Entertainment Weekly, the Murder Inc. maven addressed a number of talking points certain to excite fans.

ON RELEASE DATE OF NEW SINGLE:

“There are a lot of things going on and it’s important to try and line everything up as much as you can, but it’s also important to not sit and wait on things,” she said.“But I’d love to have some new stuff out this summer!”

ON NEW ALBUM’S THEME:

“I can’t tell you yet. It has a concept…. it really tells a story [but] you really have to get it. I don’t even want to put a little bit out there because people are going to be like, ‘what?’“I’d rather give you the whole, full-course meal instead of just the appetizer, because if you don’t taste it right, it might not go down right!”[source]

The yet-titled project, her 7th studio effort, will see its production overseen by Metro Boomin.  While confirmed features include fellow Urban hitmakers Jeremih, Tory Lanez, and Swae Lee, Douglas has confirmed there is potential for collaborations with J. Balvin and Cardi B‘s ‘Money’ producer J. White.

    I had such great hope for Ashanti after she released that rock tinged banger Only U way back in 2008. Unfortunately, she has never been able to duplicate or come close to anything that amazing (sonically or visually) since that bop first came out 15 years ago. 🤔😴

      Yes! I loved “Only U” …unfortunately, I think that was the last song of hers I’ve bopped to since then.
