Ashanti Pure Passion and Fire

Ashanti2009

Today we celebrate the women of the week. The recipient is Ashanti Shequoiya Douglas or as we know her Ashanti. She was born on October 13, 1980 in Glen Cove , New York. She was a born singer and dancer from the age of six. When she was fourteen in 1994, she started a bidding war between Bad Boy Records and Jive Records. She signed with neither as the deal with Bad Boy was a bad contract for her, and Jive only saw her as a pop singer. She did sign with Epic Records in 1998 but was a low priority on the radar and the deal went nowhere. She started penning hooks and recording them with rap artists, which she sang with JaRule, Jennifer Lopez, and Fat Joe. In 2002, she released her debut album that sold over 500,000 copies in the first week. She had three songs in the top ten singles at one time. The album earned her many awards, including eight Billboard Music Awards, two American Music Awards, and a Grammy Award. She has sold over six million albums from her four releases worldwide as a solo artist. She has written songs for many artists as well as a book of poetry. She has moved into acting as you could see from her work in her videos that this was a natural transition. She has been in the movies Coach Carter, Bollywood, Bride and Prejudice, John Tucker Must Die, and Resident Evil: Extinction. Her next movie project is she will be in the movie You’re Nobody till Somebody Kills You slated for a 2009 release. Ashanti is one very talented lady and at only 28 years old she will be around a long time. She is the women of the week because she just drips style and it is so sticky sweet you cannot remove your eyes from her. She has a smoking hot body, long legs, and a very appealing facial appearance.
