    This has got to be one of the hottest records she has out thus far. Ashanti is an artist who doesn't get the props she deserves, IMO. Her next to newest CD: "Concrete Rose", has several hits that cover issues such as:

    "Focused"-breaking free from an abusive relationship

    "Take Me Tonight"- A youthful duet of two lovers admiring, and appreciating each others qualities, Featuring LLoyd

    "Still Down"- An duet involving both parties professing their love and devotion to each other while the guy is incarcerated, Featuring TI

    "So Hot"- A Romantic song, where she initiates a rendez-vous with a special someone

    "U"- admitting to having a burning desire for a special someone


    What do you all think of this? I'm certain the majority of you are familiar with it. I am not a record promoter, but let's celebrate Ashanti's talent and style, and give the props she deserves.

    I just picked this up over the weekend and haven't listened to it yet. Only thing I've had in my deck the past week is her compilations cd.

    one of my fav CD's.......

    It's a pretty enlightening CD, ya know.....sort of sappy with a youthful twist, and a teaspoon of puppy-love:spinstar:

    Ok, thanks...I will make sure that I check it out one day this week. I'm waiting for her cousin Ak'sent's cd to drop...

    I got a bulletin from her this morning and need to print it out...

    Anyway, I have always liked Ashanti because she reminds me alot of Aaliyah and usually has pretty tight production.

    Most of what I listen to these days probably could be considered "hip hop soul" and Ashanti may not be exactly the best "singer" but there is a "Family" relationship that I have to respect...
