Ashanti Visits Hot 97 / Talks #VERZUZ, Owning Her Masters, New Project & More

Published: Wednesday 27th Jan 2021 by Sam

Ashanti has wasted no time capitalizing on the buzz of her #VERZUZ battle with Keyshia Cole.

For, she’s unwrapped new single ‘2:35’ and is already hot on the promotional trail for the track.

Her latest stop was Hot 97, where she chopped it up with Ebro, Peter Rosenberg, and Laura Stylez.

The in-depth sit-down saw the GRAMMY winner open up about her illustrious career, her spar with Cole, owning her masters, being business savvy, and a whole lot more.

Watch below…

Great interview.

She made a poignant point about being embraced about the new crop of stars on the come-up.

We’ve long held a belief that Ashanti possesses the potential to still have R&B moments in the current climate.

So, here’s hoping the #VERZUZ effect continues to benefit her.

    Ashanti talks about the Queen Jennifer Lopez at 5:00 And its normal for a song to have background singers! As Ashanti said her vocals was mixed with Jen’s voice to add flavor or style to the song. And she said it is normal in the music industry. Its not the first song that a chorus was mixed or sing with the background singers. Some examples:

    Alicia Keys – You Don’t Know My Name John Legend,
    Diana Ross – Chain Reaction Brothers Gibb
    Madonna – Justify My Love Lenny Kravitz
    Whitney Houston – Step by Step Annie Lennox
    Carly Simon – You’re So Vain Mick Jagger
    Selena Gomez – Same Old Love Charli XCX
    Rihanna – Disturbia Chris Brown
    Rihanna – Diamonds (Sia)
    Toni Braxton – He Wasn’t Man Enough

    Not sure why people are shocked like it’s a new thing. Most girls out here doing the same Shh1t people just love to drag her because your fave could never be relevant as jennifer even when she is 50 years old she has in just one year a succesfull tour + successsful movie + awards (20 movie awards as best female on Hustlers + 2 icons awards on Billboard and People) + superbowl + new years eve + inaguration.

      You’re absolutely right! ✅💯 And I love On The 6, that’s my favorite 🤳🏽

      Even Mariah Carey in her prime had background singers – Kelly Price, Trey Lorenz etc. We all know it’s not because she couldn’t sing, it’s Mariah Carey! But like you said, it’s to add a different flavor and sound.

      When a rapper features other rappers, it’s not because they can’t rap, it’s to add a different flow and dynamic to the track. It’s about meshing one style with another.
