MUSIC FAB: Ashanti's "Never Should Have" SINGLE + A$AP Rocky's "Wild For The Night" Video Ft. Skrillex + Cassie's "Numb" TRAILER

In new releases, "Army Wives" star Ashanti sings about ending a relationship on "Never Should Have."  Listen to the track inside and rock out to A$AP Rocky's latest video "Wild For The Night" ft. Skrillex and Birdy Nam Nam and see Cassie's trailer for "Numb."

 

In a case of life imitating art, Ashanti is back on the airwaves with a powerful record about heartbreak.  And a sexy single cover.  It doubles as a track for the soundtrack of the hit Lifetime show "Army Wives" and possibly her own life.  On "Never Should Have," the newly minted cable-network star offers a mid-tempo ballad with sweeping orchestrations fit for a "Lifetime Movie Of The Week" on pain, heartache and betrayal.

And as fans await the arrival of her Braveheart disc, it's hard to ignore how the song's message of ending a relationship might reflect how she feels about watching Nelly move on with Tae Heckard.  Like the song says "You never should have loved me/ You never should have touched me/ You never should have told me you loved me and you would never leave me.”
 

Listen to "Never Should Have" here:

And in new music videos:

Rapper A$AP Rocky, who's currently on Rihanna's DIAMONDS tour, flew down to the Dominican Republic with Skrillex and Birdy Nam Nam for "Wild For The Night". Shot amongst the locals, A$AP talked about the video saying, “We was in the slums and the kids, they enjoyed it. It was fun.”

While the track is a "fun" club record, and we're sure that A$AP brought much needed attention to the poverty-stricken area, it may be a bit odd to watch him smoke what appears to be marijuana while he sits among a group of poor kids shouting "A$AP Mob...we fucking rule the world."  But with folks like Soulja Boy promoting Codeine on Instagram, we guess the kids are used to seeing stuff like this.

Watch the clip above....

 

And in upcoming videos.....

Cassie has released a trailer for her upcoming Numb video from the Rock-a-Bye Baby mixtape (dropping April 11).  Check it.  This chick loves a trailer doesn't she?

What in the airbrushed

What in the airbrushed hell?!?! I hope they paid the girl whose body they used a nice chunk of change, because that is not Ashanti...not now; not ever!

My problems with this track

My problems with this track is #1: It's not her voice on the verses, just the hook. And the two voices don't even sound the same with her's being pretty bad. #2: How many times are we going to have to listen to her whine about the breakup of a relationship that neither party ever admitted existed. #3: The Way That You Love Me was hard as hell and should have been your only public response....Nelly is laughing at you by now.

Ashanti's hair and make up is

Ashanti's hair and make up is underwhelming, yet she is posing half naked. She reminds me of an urban "twitter model". She needs to stop.

A flat stomach is not that

A flat stomach is not that rare in the industry. Anybody with an extra $3,000 can have one. Keep your clothes on and work on your vocals... that's something money can't buy.

Wow there are so many haters

Wow there are so many haters on this post. Who cares about her showing her body, its hers. I think she looks great. I am happy to see any black women doing something positive in their lives. If you don't like her or her music you shouldn't click on the post. My mother always taught me if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

OK. No one's mentioned the

OK. No one's mentioned the amazing air brushing they did to make her stomach look like that? This non-singing, no talent having girl needs to sit down. This is one album I WILL NOT be buying.

Here is the compelling

Here is the compelling question who is Ashanti’s targeted audience? Does she think men are going out to buy her music or does she think females buy more of her music? If it is the latter does she think the females that buy her music are into other females? If not why when I buy her CD do I have to see her half naked and I’m buying her CD for her music not her sex appeal! Do any of these artist think in the basic sense? I’m so tired of seeing skin that is ridiculous – I won’t even purchase her CD not that I have purchased any but the sex sells shit is played OUT!

the idea is that men want you

the idea is that men want you and women want to be like you. either way tho, i dont think there's anything offensive about the human body in any state of being dressed or undressed. its really just a matter of how people view the body, sex and sexuality. a LOT of ppl arent tired of seeing skin. it is after all, just skin.....lol

Oh thanks for that insight

Oh thanks for that insight - Oh thanks for that insight - considering I'm a nudist at home I don't have a problem with skin but if my music wasn't selling like it should I would change some things up - why as a female do I need to see Ashanti or any other female artist in lingerie or nude - I know what men want and I don't want to be like Ashanti!

lol!! im a nudist in the

lol!! im a nudist in the shower too. Im guessing that the way you feel comfy being naked at home is the same level of comfort some others feel about being "half naked" on their album cover. maybe she is just owning, loving and flaunting her body vs selling sex. I have a feeling you werent gonna rock with Shanti anyways tho....lol. its all good.
