Ashanti is once again working on new music and will be releasing another album soon, her goal is to have music dropping by the end of the year… Never one to go without a check she sat down with Billboard magazine on her upcoming projects…
On The New Project’s Rumored Title:
“The next album is absolutely not called Chapter VI (as rumored). It’s really confusing. I have no idea where that came from. But the music on there is incredible. I’m really excited. I can’t wait for people to hear the new music.”
On The Sound:
“[I’ve recorded about 15 or 16 songs]. I’m probably in love with about six or seven of them, like IN LOVE in love. I’m working with different people, different sounds, different things on this album, just kind of going places I haven’t gone before. Being an adult now, times are different. People want more of you.
“here are certain things that five years ago there’s no way anyone could’ve gotten me to say certain things, but this time around it’s like, ‘Hey, we’re in 2016 going into 2017, and this is how I feel. This is how it is. This is where we are in life, with everything.’ I’m ready to do that.”
On Recording In LA With Ty Dolla $ign, DJ Mustard, J-Roc, Hit-Boy, L.T. Hutton & More
“There’s so many different people. I was just thinking about my favorite records and who did them. The last two times I went out to L.A. I was only supposed to be there for a week and ended up staying for a month each time. I catch a really great vibe out there for some reason. Whenever I’m out there I go super hard.”
