Music Fab: Ashanti's "The Way That I Love You"

​ ​ ​ ​
Ashanti's got a second track that's leaked called "The Way that I Love You": [audio:thewaythatiloveyou.mp3] Yeah....I'm gonna give this one a No as well. Maybe track number three off her never releasing album will be the charmer.

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

I actually like it the intro

I actually like it the intro was lovely. she sounds stronger than on any of her other songs. i kind of got lost though after the 2nd minute but it's cool overall. better than those other two songs. i only got thru about 20 seconds

This song is hot! Stop

This song is hot! Stop hatin' on Ashanti - she's been hittin' the gym and finally shaved her sideburns. Now, she needs to release this song and show her sister how to dress.

[quote comment="26476"]I

[quote comment="26476"]I like the song and she sounds more vocally strong this time .So I don't see why the hate is happening . People evolve and mature and want to branch out career wise and get away from the stupidness that is Murder Inc. Some people get tired of Ghetto stuff and want more out of life. I like her song and I will support her no matter what she puts out. Not everyone can be Fake @ss Beyonce.. I mean everyone has there own style so we need except change and evolve. There is enough room for Ashanti to be at the music table too. One Love yall have a good day and be blessed[/quote] I AGREE. I THINK HER VOICE SOUNDS REALLY GOOD ON THIS SONG. SHE'S NOT A BAD SINGER, SHE JUST HAS HORRIBLE MARKETERS OF HER MUSIC. I'M HAPPY HER IMAGE IS CHANGING. SHE'S MATURE AND AN ADULT NOW. TIME TO TRY SOMETHING NEW!

[quote comment="26485"]THAT'S

[quote comment="26485"]THAT'S RIGHT.. KEEP HATING ON BEY CAUSE SHE CAN'T BE STOPPED.. FUNNY HOW HER NAME COMES UP WHEN WE HAVE A POST ON ASHITTY... LMAO.. THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW YOU'RE THAT B*TCH WHEN PEOPLE HATE ON YOU WHEN IT AIN'T EVEN YOUR POST!! CALL HER FAKE, CALL HER WHAT YOU WANT, BUT THAT WOMAN HAS MORE TALENT IN HER PINKY FINGER THAN MOST ARTISTS OUT NOW. NO LEVEL OF "FAKE-NESS" CAN DISGUISE THAT--IT ONLY ADDS TO HER MARKETABILITY!! START CONGRATULATING AND MOVE ON... HATIN ON B WILL GET YOU NOWHERE AND ONLY INCREASE HER BANK ACCOUNT... LOLOL.. GOOD TRY ASHANTI.. JUST NOT FEELING HER AS A MUSIC/SINGING STAR.. HER TIME HAS PASSED. MAYBE NOW SHE SHOULD STICK TO ACTING. THIS IS NOT "EVOLUTION" FOR ME.[/quote] oh plesasse shut up. you seem to be trying to say so much but sound so shetto.

She sounds more mature...I like the song...if I heard it several more times I think it would really appeal to me....

Not feeling it. It's

Not feeling it. It's overproduced and her voice is not strong enough for this type of song. She sounds like a little 12 yr old girl who's voice has yet to mature. There is nothing different about this song. It sounds like her other slow, Mary J. Blige - ish sounding songs. BTW, this is Ashanti's 4th 1st single. It's interesting to me to see a fan of one artist attack those that don't like their favorite artist. But they turn around and diss another artist. Why was Beyonce's name even bought up? She must be doing something right and something that intimidating to fans of Ashanti because there was no reason to bring her up. When are you all going to realize that not everyone has to like everything. Get over it.

I love this song because

I love this song because there is so much that Ashanti is saying that I and every other person can relate to. If a song can relate to me, then I'll support it. @the haters, really who cares about your prize celebrity, it's getting tiresome and childish. If your a fan of someone else's music that's great for you, but leave that class act on your fan celebrity page.

I'm gonna need people to

I'm gonna need people to chill out and stop getting hyped over who's the better singer cause none of them are paying your bills.... And Anonymous I don't see why you felt the need to disrespect Natasha and those we agree that Ashanti is wack. Clearly this is a blog site and if you don't like what you read here DON'T COME BACK. Plus if she never posted anything about this chick you would have something to say. Here is where the saying comes in that I'm sure your mother told you "If you don't have nothing nice to say, you should say anything at all"

I agree. I've never been an Ashanti fan b/c in the past I thought her songs were aimless and that her voice sounded weak. But I was pleasantly suprised when I heard this song...the lyrics are more solid, her voice sounds fuller, and the melody is beautiful.

I like the song. I am happy

I like the song. I am happy that she is coming back. I have one question, why is Beyonce catching heat on a post regarding Ashanti. People have to realize that Beyonce can not be blamed for other artist coming up short. Some are commenting on how "fake" Beyonce is but fell to realize that half the people in the spot light are fake. Beyonce just knows the game!!!!!!!!!!!!

This song is aight. Will it

This song is aight. Will it be enough to convince her label to put her damn record out? I dunno. I wish her the best, tho. I saw her in concert by accident back in 2004-I showed up expecting to see Destiny's Child and Faith Evans, but was surprised when Ashanti was on the bill too-and she charmed me with her loud, sweet, hood chick personality. Can she blow? Not really, but her squeaking and sqwawking to the beat with a huge happy grin on her face, and then yelling, "Man! Gah! OOH, Its HOT! Ya'll cain't turn the Air Conditionuh on? Man, you don't know whut mah HAIR is finta DO in this heat! Bananas!" had me LMAO and loving her. That, and that "Aww Baby Oh Baby Ooh Bsby Wanna Love U Baby Thinking Of U Baby" song of hers has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Why compare other heffas on they grind to her? Why pit em against each other? Its room for er'body. They don't hate each other, so why care? Others might be more widely adored, but at the end of the day, without the Colgate smiles and the flouncy dresses and Pro Tools and 808 machines and MAC and pounds of fluffy silky bushy sewn-in Remy Yaki, all of these bytches would be NOTHIIIIIING.

I honestly like the song...and I am no fan of Ashanti's. I think she grew and let it show in her vocals. She has always been a great writer of music and I wish her continued success and happiness on every level. Stop the hate and congratulate.

The reality is the song is something a lot of women today can relate to. I have never been a fan of hers but in all reality this song sounds a hell of a lot stronger than "switch" and "after the club" or whatever the hell.

[quote comment="26499"]The song is very nice. I can't imagine visiting a place where people are so childish. If you don't have anything nice to say, then why say it at all. If you don't like it, then say you don't and move on. People really need to reevaluate their lives and focus on things that are important. I don't know Ashanti from Adam, but she is trying to do what she likes doing. Whether you feel she has talent or not, really shouldn't matter. You are not her vocal coach, nor are you paying her light, water, mortgage bills. She is doing that and needs to do what she enjoys doing which so happens to be singing/entertainment. This world is big enough for her and whoever dreams to, until they are completely fulfilled and decide to move on. Just because 500 people or so who are immature and don't have a life feel a need to be negative doesn't mean the girl should be called names, compared or trashed. Let's be positive about our black sisters trying to do their thing, and stop all the negativity.[/quote] I agree 100% with what you said. Honestly, I like the song and can relate to it. Just because you don't like Ashanti, doesn't mean you have to tear her down, just to build up others. I'm not her biggest fan either, but I'm not so negative that I call her all kinds of corny names and act like she hurt me, simply because put out a song. I honestly don't get tbe hate toward the girl. What did she do? Other than put out records. Nobody is holding a gun to your head telling you to listen to her. But you do it anyway. Just to be negative, and that makes you a hater all the same. You talk about people hating on Beyonce and others, but look at what you're doing right now. You're a hater too, just a different girl. Don't click on the link, simple as that. It's one thing to not like somebody's music. It's another, when you just bash them for no reason. And you're bashing Ashanti for no reason. Firther more, I don't see y'all putting out any records or doing a better job.

Well...Like the track, but

Well...Like the track, but maybe it wasn't the right song for her vocal ability. Oh well...u win some, u lose some...at least she's trying...and please stop with the unfair comparisons...Ashanti should not (in any way) be placed on the same playing field as Bey or Tamia (raw talent). Let's keep her with competitors like Christina Milian or Cassie (cool, but not horrible). Be Fair, now, people...

I will admit, I am not a fan of Ashanti's music or voice. This song is not horrid, but its not good either. Although I do hear the maturity, I find it a bit bland. She should probably just retire & continue to be Nelly's girlfriend. :-)
