On a recent appearance on the Tamron Hall show R&B singer Ashanti shared that not only does she have the masters to her 2002 debut record, Ashanti, but she also intends to rerecord the No. 1 album and rerelease it independently.
When it comes to being the owner of her Masters, the “Happy” singer shared , “It’s so surreal. I have an amazing legal team, and I got my first record deal when I was 14 years old, so understanding and seeing how things have changed so much from then to now and conceptually understanding what you’re signing is so imperative, it’s so important nowadays. The fact that I’ll be able to rerecord my first album, and put everything together.”
The triple platinum album has the hit singles, “Baby,” “Happy,” and, of course, “Foolish.” On the topic of being in charge of her freedom, the 40-year-old shared, “It’s so humbling. It is such an honor. I’m so grateful. It’s such a blessing, you know, the fact that we are still here, we’re living through a pandemic, and these blessings are still coming in—it just makes me so happy again, so humbled, and such a believer. There’s a higher power, and I think that just being a good person and praying and putting your heart into things—you get that energy back, and I think that’s so important. So I’m just really, really happy.”
