Ashanti - Ashanti
Listen now
After the boom of Y2K pop was coming to an end in early 2002, the music world was shifting to a more urban sound. Suddenly the general public wasn’t as interested in the famous Max Martin sound that shaped the sounds of artists like Backstreet Boys, NSYNC and Britney Spears and instead were leaning towards a more hip-hop sound. Enter, Ashanti. Her debut self-titled studio album was a blockbuster smash. Released in the spring of 2002 the album is home to classics such as “Foolish”, “Unfoolish”, “Happy” and “Baby” amongst others. This week, join me as we take a ride into the world of Ashanti and go back in-time to when Murder Inc records ran the music world, See-through jelly purses were on the arms of every teen girl, and BabyPhat and Phat Farm were the hottest brands in the stores. So sit back, relax and don’t get too foolish as we dive into the world of Ashanti.
