Today, Ashanti’s fourth album, The Declaration, hits stores.
Check out my interview with Ashanti for EDGE and at the end of June my main interview with Ashanti will come out in HX Magazine, where we discuss Beyonce, her gay fans, Ja-Rule's comment in Blender ("gays are f*cking up America") and more.
In the meantime, listen to my audio extras –- she discusses Senator Obama, the “Tip Drill” video (loved that she said "I wasn't a big fan of that video."), racism, and even busts out a lil’ acapella. Also, she talks her song "Diva", probably one of the first times an R&B artist made a song strictly for the gays -- not just a one liner, no code, no subliminal messages -- and the song is HOT.
By the way -- I'm glad Ashanti admitted she has experienced racism in the music industry. Considering I interviewed another R&B female artist who said she experienced no racism.
