Sista Sighting: Ashanti

Ashanti Douglas 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.

Check out the chart busting viva below as she makes an appearance at the Casio G-Shock ‘Shock The World Tour’ at Cipriani, Wall Street last night.

  1. Wow, Ashanti is a blast from the past. She fell off big time. Too bad I loved her music. She may not be the best singer, but atleast she could write.

  2. Many people forget how much Ashanti was selling, she is an accomplished artist no matter what anyone says. The Way That I Love U was a jam.

  3. I like Ashanti. Shes got a great personality and way more talent than whats rolling out on radio today.

  4. GO team Ashanti. She didn’t fall off. She doing her. I bought her last album it was well written.

    I guess you have to be overexposed in this industry for people acknowlegde you.

  5. Ashanti look really good. I really like ashanti. Foolish was the jam. I love her and nelly together they make a good couple.

  6. yup, sadly it looks like her time has came and went.she is actually turning 29 in october.

  7. Who retires at 29. What are you people talking about. That is unrealistic to think someone is suppose to retire at 29. She is just getting started twenty nine is not old.

  8. I like Ashanti. She does NOT age!

    She has gots to stop posing like she’s taking an 8th grade candid w/ friends tho’.

    What is she doing these days? ๐Ÿ˜

  9. ASHANTI IS A BEAUTIFUL LADY IT’S FUNNY HOW TIME PAST BY I REMEMBER JUST LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY WHEN SHE BURST INTO THE MUSIC SCENE. BUT THE GIRL IS A GOOD SONGWRITER TO.

  10. Dunno about that outfit but eowwww she about to be 30 and we look the same age lol gotta luv that whole black don’t crack thing.

  11. Can’t believe Shanti is almost 30 she looks the same age she was when she came out. She can still portray a school aged girl.

    The outfit is ugly, but I like that pose, it’s a girl next door pose.

    And wow, this is a walk down memory lane, Ashanti was huge. At one time she was one of the top 3 female singers. She was everywhere. She was on all the covers all the music shows, she was even at burger king. What happened? did she just stay away for too long?

  12. Ashanti you need me on your fashion team. Please put out a bangin CD next and put wack ass non-educated Beyonce down the tube. Like Ms. Keri said, she need to sit down somewhere. Its Shani’s world.

  13. Unlike many who look worn out and beyond their alleged age, ASHANti looks gorgeous and young hate the outfit! too bad for ashanti she lost her career when folks start feeding into the slave mentality and care more about visual than the lyrics and the composition

  14. Agreed that her latest album is real good. And totally agreed that she never look older. (^^)

  15. She was born in 1980. She’ll turn 29 not 30.
    I liked her first album. Didn’t know she was that famous in the US though.
