Ashanti’s fifth studio album, ‘Braveheart‘, was released last week, & debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 chart with 28,000 units sold in its first week. Released independently via her Written Entertainment imprint, the project was a labor of love for Ashanti. ‘Braveheart‘ had been brewing for over two years before fans were able to hear the full body of work. For Ashanti, she says the project’s delays were due to several reasons including making great songs, & being strategy with its release. Singersroom chopped it up with the former Murder Inc songstress about the new project.
