“Like get in my face, say less (say less)/If it ain’t about the money, say less (say less)/If he ain’t from the clique, say less/Bitch, say less.”
Though there are little details surrounding the new album, it will serve as the official followup to Ashanti’s fifth studio album, Braveheart, which was released in 2014.
Braveheart marked Asnati’s first album in six years, since The Declaration and her first since leaving Murder Inc Records. In 2012, Ashanti formed her own record label Written Entertainment, which was independently distributed worldwide by eOne Music.
