Ashanti’s coming up on her fourth album? I had no idea… I just liked her from that amazing "What’s Luv" song way back in 2002. Well, this new single is from her upcoming The Declaration, and she plays an incredibly rich, scorned lover who murders her cheatin’ man … or else it’s all a nightmare from trying to drown herself in her luxury tub. Hey! That’s Britney’s thing!
I feel like Ashanti wishes she was someone else, artistically; this video feels rehashed … or artificially dramatic. But maybe I’m being too hard on her; she’s proved she can be great given the right song.
Yeah, yeah – but now I’m feeling all nostalgic….Let’s watch "What’s Luv," shall we? It’s high school all over again!
