…in the movies, to have a man so in love it makes him drop to his knees. She’s even on his mind, while he’s asleep at night, Cause that’s the feeling you’ve given me.
I love this song. Ashanti gets a LOT of flack for being pretty wack. I mean she’s pretty (to me) but she can’t really sing, she can’t dress, and she says “aww baby” like 500 times in almost every song–well except this one. I featured another favorite song by her in my Rain Rain Go Away post last year (its pretty easy to guess which song that is.) But she’s had a few other bangers. Singing ability be damned, her first CD bumped! I effed with her! But then again I also effed with Ja Rule before 50 cent brainwashed into everyone thinking he was garbage, then pretty much biting his schtick–you know the whole singing hooks instead of rapping thing.
so anyway here are a few of my faves by Ashanti.
Still On It -this song BANGS! I even posted a blog about this song alone too.I really don’t care for Paul Wall, but Meth?! lawdamercy. the beat and the features are what make it hot.
Baby – I know, I know. but it works for me. and who can deny that Scarface Mary Jane beat? “he’s like the lighter to my cigarette, watch me smoke…”
Unfoolish -the remix with my dude BIG. I remember when Foolish came out this was probably one of THE most played songs on the radio. so much I grew sick of it, but the BIG verse revived it.
Always on Time -its Ja’s song but she made it, and yes I was the chick that had this on my voicemail in college #dontjudgeme
So Hot -this is the song I was listening to on my ipod that prompted the post. a sexy underrated joint from her third cd Concrete Rose.
Good Good -came out in 08? and surprisingly was catchy and people dug it, despite really not liking her. lol
I actually have about 13 songs on my iPod from Ashanti so I guess I like her more than most marginally talented people. I know I’m not alone in liking these songs–or others not mentioned! Below is another collabo with Ja and my boy Nas that I used to play out too. This is when Nas was going thru some phase when he thought he was gonna be down with The Inc? glad that didn’t last. Also, it this song especially its SOOO evident that Ja modeled himself after Pac.
