After putting out teasers for this video, and “V.I.Leaks” on 106 & Park, the video for Ashanti’s track, “The Woman You Love,” is out, and she’s officially back. Homegirl goes all futuristic in the video, playing a tortured soul floating in the future who needs to let go of the past in order to be free. In order to do so, she looks back over the relationship that hurt her thanks to a cheating boo played by actor Marcus Patrick. His cameo as her love interest is a little hard for me to take seriously after I peeped him doing a strip tease in this B. Scott video…
But anyway, while the song really isn’t that bad, her vocals aren’t much stronger I must say. Busta Rhymes makes this track worth listening to, and makes a cameo in the video repping YMCMB VERY hard (why are they signing all these old a** artists?). And Ashanti’s attire in the video is pretty fierce too, though I really need her to ditch that head-braid crap she keeps walking out the house with. But alas…Check the video below and tell us what you think. Is Ashanti back?
What do you think? Pass or play for you?

It has been a minute since we’ve seen a video from Ashanti, let alone a song, but despite the fact that we thought she dropped out of the game, she’s back! And with Busta Rhymes of all people! The two teamed up for “The Woman You Love” a few months back, but now the singer is trying to get the anticipation up for the accompanying video by releasing a teaser. Her leading man is Brit actor and model Marcus Patrick.
What we can see from the 32 second teaser is Ashanti in love, Ashanti mad, Ashanti leaving, Ashanti arguing with her man, and Ashanti singing with blue lipstick and a random braid across her forehead about pain. Excuse me, but isn’t this the trend for most of her videos? Good love gone bad? Anyway, this is just a teaser, so things could be much different than they seem right now. Check it out below and also get a full taste of her song “The Woman You Love” and decide if it’s all fab or a fail.
And check out the entire track below:

With the help of a continuously embattled (but still Hot) Chris Brown, last week, Keri Hilson debuted the song and video “One Night Stand” from her album, No Boys Allowed. The Hot duet, scorching from the recording to the dark video and its synchronized dance breakdown, brought to mind all the dope duets in Hot R&B over the years. Not the lovey-dovey Ashford & Simpson or Marvin & Tammi type joints, but the make your ears melt and make you turn it down when people come around type tracks. There’s too many to narrow down, but here are a few you’ll need to get a hold of ASAP.

BV: was that difficult for you running the careers of big-name people and calling the shots as one of the few women around? MSY: The thing for me — and the one thing I’ve had to rely on not having degrees or experience of working at a company and having to figure it out on my own — I always had confidence in my skill set and went through it with blinders on. I’d be on the bus with a bunch of dudes and I gained a certain amount of control and respect, but also [I demanded] basic things like everybody is sharing rooms, I’m not. my clients respected the grind, and I always had their support. when I took on Missy as a client, I had both a client and an ally in terms of a woman battling her way in a male-dominated industry and not looking like a female pop star or a female rap star of that time. But, there is a camaraderie that exists amongst the men in terms of how they look out for and take care of each other.
