Exclusive: Ashanti Spills on Soul Train Awards Honor & Re-Recording Debut Album

Published: Thursday 25th Nov 2021 by Sam

For two decades, Ashanti has amazed the masses with music that has become etched in the lives of millions worldwide.

An unmistakable presence in the Pop cultural landscape, the singer has broken records and bulldozed the barriers that once limited Black women in the entertainment space.

It’s fitting, then, that Ashanti has been named the recipient of the coveted Lady of Soul honor at the Soul Train Awards 2021. 

Filmed at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York, the hotly anticipated show airs this Sunday (November 28) and will see the superstar take to the stage to perform.

Prior to the big night, That Grape Juice‘s Chet Kincaid sat down with Ashanti to discuss the honor and her exciting plans to re-record her debut album.

Watch the EXCLUSIVE interview above.

The Soul Train Awards airs this Sunday on BET at 8pm ET/PT on BET, BET Her, VH1, and MTV2.

    Ashanti has always been a self made woman. What hurts me is to see white fools receive honors for mediocre work and less talent. Ashanti should have 4X the amount of money she now has- but she’s humble. Don’t fool with Nelly anymore- forget that. And that dude “Gotti”, he’s been JEALOUS of Ashanti since day one. Anybody that needs to take on “others names” to establish a reputation, is sorry.Does she need either of them? NO!!!!

      Well then go to a country where the majority is black so therefore the charts will be too, if you hate seeing “white fools” being successful 💋
