This is HOT! It sounds different for Ashanti. It’ll at least be a Urban Top 10 hit.December 15, 2011 at 7:44 am #377718
Wow I love it! Hopefully its a hit on urban radio. Reminds me of some kind of gangster Jennifer Hudson song.December 15, 2011 at 8:08 am #377719

A gangster Jennifer Hudson song? But yes it should be a hit at Urban Radio,but if she wants it to even chart on the Hot 100,they gotta do some decent promo. Ashanti doesnt have the best voice but she is constantly improving with each album. I wasnt expecting something like this,she really stepped it up big time.December 15, 2011 at 8:22 am #377720
Haha yeah her vocals in that song are strangely reminiscent to Jennifers. But yeah promo is the thing she really needs to do. Her talent is getting stronger each album, but I havent been impressed with her latest material. This sounds like a good start.December 15, 2011 at 11:05 am #377721
Ashanti is taking the independent route with her next album. A day after releasing her Busta Rhymes-assisted single, the R&B diva has officially announced her new record deal.
The Grammy-winning singer will release her fifth album, the follow-up to 2008’s The Declaration, through her own label Written Entertainment under a worldwide distribution and label services deal with eOne Music. She was previously signed to The Inc./Universal Motown.
The first single from the 2012 release, “The Woman You Love,” features Busta Rhymes and was produced by Jerry “Wonda” Duplessis (The Fugees, Mary J. Blige). It is available now on iTunes.
“eOne is proud to have a partnership with Ashanti and her label Written Entertainment,” said Alan Grunblatt, President of eOne Music. “Ashanti truly has the independent entrepreneurial attitude that eOne was built on, and we’re thrilled to be working with her.
Ashanti added, “I’m so excited to have my own record label, Written Entertainment. With eOne as my distributor, I feel that their innovative and ambitious approach to the music industry, really gives my label a worldwide presence. They have the top radio people in the business and are hungry to win! The more I learned the business the more I knew this is what I wanted. Ownership is so important. As a business woman this was a great move for me!”
This is a good look for Ashanti! I’m so excited!December 15, 2011 at 12:54 pm #377722
This could be growing on me. I really like the “But it just don’t seem like it’s enough” part, but overall I’m not too hooked yet.December 16, 2011 at 12:27 am #377723
Honey, this song is terrible . Ashanti needs to give it up.December 16, 2011 at 7:11 am #377724
Why doesn’t this girl get it? No one wants to hear you sing the songs you write. She should’ve just given it to Jennifer.December 16, 2011 at 12:13 pm #377725

Who cares? Alot of people dont want to hear Rihanna,Katy,or Taylor sing the songs that they write, but they still sing them.December 16, 2011 at 5:33 pm #377726
The beat is cluttered. I can’t get into it. She’d have done better if she just re-released “Foolish.”December 17, 2011 at 3:18 pm #377727
It’s ok! But it def will not revive Ashanti’s career. LMAODecember 29, 2011 at 2:58 pm #377728
It debuts today at #97 on the R+B Charts. When the video and promo start it will most likely hit the Top 10.January 2, 2012 at 10:29 am #377729
This is cute, and it can be a moderate R&B hit.
However, I’m not sure if it will be that song that will put her back into the mainstream limelight. She’s just one of those artists that people stopped caring about a long time ago.February 5, 2012 at 9:26 pm #377731
“The Woman You Love” could be a substantial hit on Urban.
I think she looks fabolous on the single cover. Busta’s verse is pretty good as well.
The video is coming out soon and features MARCUS PATRICK!!!
