Ashanti was born in Nigeria but her life has taken her around the world. She has been called the Queen of Soul due to her innovative rapping style that is loved by many. Ashanti is known for her soulful voice and her amazing lyrics. She has been compared to idols like Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z. It is said that her voice is so lovely that even the Queen of Pop feels inspired to sing with her.
Ashanti Douglas is currently an American singer, songwriter, actress, and model. She was originally found as a 15-year-old runaway and later signed by Murder Inc. Records in 2001. Her debut album “Ashanti” was released in 2003 and she has gone on to have several hit singles including “Give Me The Reason,” “Xxplosive,” “Lookin’ Class,” and “Sorry.” She has since had several other albums released including “Lemons To Life” and “I Am Ashanti.”
Ashanti’s album “Lemons to Life” was produced by New York based artist Ovgotti. This is the band’s first album in many years and now it is being re-released as a double CD with a bonus track, “The Greatest rapper Live.” While the original version of this album was considered mainstream, Ashanti has released several more singles on her own label. Her music has also been featured on several other artists’ albums.

Ashanti’s debut album was made available through iTunes. This led to her becoming one of the biggest breakout stars in the music industry in the early days of the digital age. The single “Lookin’ Class” became the first single off of Ashanti’s second album “Lemons to Life.” This single is one of her most popular songs and has achieved decent sales not only in the United States but all over the world.
The look of Ashanti’s clothing reflects the style of the music on her debut album, with bright, bold colors and loud patterns. Her hair, which is almost black now, is braided in many different styles. Her skin has a pale to a slight tan tone. Ashanti has bright blue eyes that look to match her glowing skin. Although she is still young, she looks to be in her element, which can be seen in her energetic personality on the video for her first single, “Lookin’ Class.”
With her look, personality, music video, and discography, Ashanti has established herself as one of the new age artists on the radio today. This may be a bit of an exaggeration, but considering the fact that she started out on her own record label and independently distributing her first single as a sophomore album, this is probably true. Her look, attitude, style, music, and Ashanti’s name attached to all of it has definitely earned Ashanti a legion of fans that will most likely continue to support her for the rest of her career. Ashanti, as she states, “never let anything stand in the way of [her] dreams,” and with the help of her label and fans, she will most likely continue to blaze new trails in both the music industry and her personal life.
