The Woman You Love: Ashanti Speaks On Having Her Own Label, New Single, Sex & What She Look For A Man

The other day, singer Ashanti was in Philly on a promo tour, promoting her upcoming album Braveheart. While in the ‘City of Brotherly Love,’ Ashanti stopped by Hot 107.9 radio station. She chatted with ‘The Home Team’ about her new single “The Woman You Love,” album, and having her own label. Before leaving, Ashanti shared that a man has to wait at least one year to get some of her goodies and what she looks for in a man. Below are some excerpts:

On having her own record label Written Entertainment. I cut the checks. I write the checks. I cash the checks.

On how Busta Rhymes ended up on ‘The Woman You Love’. We were in the studio recording at Platinum Sounds in New York. I was in one room and Busta was in the other and you know when you finish your record you blast it all the way to the top and the speakers was rumbling in the studio. So Busta was next door and of course he busted in my session, “Yo! What is that?” and I’m like, “I’m thinking about putting this out.” He said, “I need to be on it. I’m on it.” He’s like, “This would drastically change our relationship if I’m not on this record.” We had a really good conversation and spoke about a lot of things. He’s kind of watched my career for a long time and he was very passionate about it.

On sex on the first date. Nah, you’re waiting almost a year. It’s not going that easy.

Missionary or doggy style? How can I say this nicely and politically? I like to stand on top of things.

The one physical feature on a man that you have to have. You have to have nice lips. You have to have a nice mouth.

What’s an instant turn on? You have to smell good. I like a good cologne; not like really strong.

Sneaker Me Dope: Fabolous Rocking Jeremy Scott x adidas JS Wings 2.0 “USA”

Rapper Fabolous, actor Kevin Hart and Kenny Burns were recently spotted at club Diamonds in Atlanta. Fab was rocking a pair of Jeremy Scott x adidas JS Wings 2.9 “USA” sneakers. Labeled the ‘Airforce Flag’, these sneakers depict the nation’s colors on two opposite shoes – the left featuring bold red stripes and the right housing a blue colorway with white stars. I like how Jeremy Scott always uses his creative ideas to make dope sneakers. I like these kicks!
