Does Ashanti ever age? The R n’ B diva, who turns 30 on October 13th, looks as youthful today as she did when she hit the music scene almost a decade ago. Rumor has it 2010 will see the release of a greatest hits package from the singer. For those who may not remember, the early half of this decade totally belonged to Ashanti. The singer/songwriter’s debut album, Foolish, sold over 500,000 copies in the first week, making it the biggest selling debut ever for a female artist. In that same week she became the first female to simultaneously hold the top two spots on the Billboard Hot 100, with her singles “What’s Luv” and “Foolish”. The singer would break another record the following week when another one of her singles “Always On Time” entered the top 10 as well, giving her 3 songs in the top 10 at the same time- a fete accomplished only once before and by The Beatles.
