Two of the biggest R&B/pop crossovers of the early noughties came from Ashanti; her collaborations on ‘What’s Luv’? with Fat Joe and ‘Always on Time’ with Ja Rule would lead to the latter describing her as “the new princess of hip hop and R&B.” Signing to Murder Inc. Records after being spotted by label boss Irv Gotti, she was seen as crucial to their strategy for crosing over into the mainstream. Her self-titled debut record was a huge success, selling six million copies worldwide and spawning hit singles including ‘Foolish’ and ‘Happy’. Since then, though, Ashanti’s struggled to replicate that success; follow-ups Chapter II and Concrete Rose struggled, primarily because of the lack of a big single (although I maintain that the Jay Z-sampling ‘Rain on Me’ from the former is one of her finest moments). With her first record in six years, Braveheart, meeting with a strong critical response and cracking the U.S. top ten earlier this year, though, she might well be poised for a comeback; she’s back out on the live circuit with a full band, with a couple of well-received UK shows late last year setting the stage for a more high-profile return to these shores – expect Murder Inc.-era classics as well as a slew of new material.
