As I sit here and listen to Ashanti's "The Declaration"
I like the cd thus far what I am hearing via imeem.com
The Declaration’s first smash single, “The Way That I Love You,” maintains a Top 3 posting in the national Urban radio airplay chart, and is continuing to bullet upward in the Top 20 of Rhythmic/Crossover radio stations nationally, and is top 25 in the adult-targeted Urban AC format. The track remains a Top 10 entry on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, after a 14-week run and a peak position of No. 2.
It's been four years - nearly an eternity in the constantly churning, here-today, gone-by-lunch world of R&B - since Ashanti released her "Concrete Rose" album to good reviews but lackluster sales, and she had been itching to return to the studio for quite some time. However, her team at The Inc. was in the middle of its own fight, not only in the long federal trial, but in the board rooms of various music companies as well.
Grammy-winner ASHANTI has been a trailblazer and role model for the new breed of multi-talented young artists since her 2001 chart debut as a featured artist on the No. 1 Ja Rule single “Always on Time.” She made history at the 2002 release of her first album Ashanti, which entered at No. 1 nationally, and sold over 500,000 in its first week, the record for a female debut artist. In the same week, she held the No. 1 and No. 2 singles in the Billboard Hot 100, with her self-written solo single “Foolish” and her collaboration with Fat Joe, “What’s Luv?” With “Always on Time” remaining in the Top 10, she became the only artist since The Beatles to have her first three singles charting in the Top 10 simultaneously. Ashanti also co-wrote a fourth song in the same week’s Top 10, Jennifer Lopez’ “Ain’t It Funny.”
Whats The Word?PS: I think its safe to say she made a strong come back but not a enough 'fierce look for me as far as the cd cover"
