Ashanti's New Version Of "The Way That Love You"

The official version of Ashanti's "The Way That I Love You" premiered Wednesday on 106 and Park.  There's a few differences from the leaked version that hit a couple weeks ago.  Emphasis on few.  Regardless, damn that Ashanti for making me like this song now.  Check it.

Bless her. She still cannot

Bless her. She still cannot sing worth a squat. I am tired of talentless artists, seriously. she squealed and wailed through that song so much that I had to press stop.

I'm definitely NOT an Ashanti

I'm definitely NOT an Ashanti fan. I happened to catch her introducing the video on the re-run of 106th and Park this past Saturday and RELUCTANTLY I msut say: I LIKE IT!!! Ever since she appeared, I've been WAITING for this chick to prove why she even has a record deal. Granted she STILL can't sing but ya GOTTA give her an "E" for effort with this one. The song is SO real. The video is AWESOME, she looks FAB (as usual-but she kinda emulates Bee), and she's TRYING to get stronger with the vocals (she mite wanna try a vocal coach...on the other hand I'm not sure that would help if the talent ain't there). I couldn't stand the site of her OR hear ANY of her songs. I hope it goes well for her and I look forwward to hearing it on the radio. Thumbs up from me...if it matters...LOL!!!

YOU PEOPLE ARE SAD. YOU ARE

YOU PEOPLE ARE SAD. YOU ARE THE SAME PEOPLE LAST WEEK WHO SAID ASHANTI WAS SO UGLY AND THIS SONG WAS SO WACK(LOOK AT THE LAST ASHANTI POST WITH THE MUGSHOT) YALL NEED SOMEBODY TO TELL YOU WHAT TO LIKE. IF SHE POSTED THIS VIDEO AND SAID IT WAS GARBAGE, YOU ALL WOULD HAVE AGREED IT WAS GARBAGE. SHE SAID SHE LIKED IT, NOW YOU ALL LOVE IT. WHY DOES EVERYBODY HAVE TO START THEIR SENTENCE OFF WITH "IM NOT A FAN OF ASHANTI" A HOT SONG IS A HOT SONG, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE A FAN OF. ALL YOU FAKE ASS SIMON COWELLS TRYING TO JUDGE WHO CAN SING AND WHO CANT. ALSO, STOP D*CK EATING BEYONCE! SHE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH EVERY OTHER FEMALE ARTIST. ASHANTI HAS HITS,WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT(AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM)!!!!! OH YEAH, CIARA...PLZZZZZZZZ. SHE IS A BACK UP DANCER WITH A MIC! SHE IS THE CORNIEST CHICK WITH A RECORD DEAL EVER!!!!!!!

I actually liked this song!

I actually liked this song! And it seems like her voice has FINALLY matured! I had never been a big fan of Ashanti b/c when she initially came out, I seriously thought she was trying to jack Aalyiah's style. LOL but anyway, good video, good song...may not buy the cd still though :-)

Why does every Ashanti thread

Why does every Ashanti thread start an all out war between folks.. If you like it simply state that and keep it moving and if you don't like it do the same... It troubles me when I see obviously young women try to tear down one woman to make another woman seem superior. I encourage those that constantly feel the need to do that to put something positive and good into their spirts...read something uplifting. All of these women mentioned make me proud to be a female. Whether they can sing or not they are pursuing their dreams and making it happen..so I don't knock any of them whether I like their music or not. I think it is awesome to pursue your dreams and make things happen despite the naysayers and a lot of the females mentioned...especially Ashanti have overcome some strong criticism and continue to step out with their heads high..you gotta love it.. Shit I say emulate it whatever you are pursuing... I will now get off of my soapbox... I just hate when we start slinging the b-word around just because someone expresses their opinion.

I mean let's be real, ain't neither one of them is a Whitney, Mariah or Christina Aguilera when it comes to "sahnging" but this Ashanti song is good & this video will help her with her developing acting career.

Clever...[/quote] NO you are NOT right!! She is definately not a Beyone or a Mariah. She is WAAAYYY better than Rihanna but she has NOTHING ON CIARA!!! Ciara is better than Rihanna and Ashanti. Ciara is pretty, can dance her ass off, adn her singing is so so but she can sing! Ashanti is pretty, cant sing (but I like this vid) and she cant dance to save her life. And can we just have a moment of silence for Rihanna???? Cause Rihanna is whack...she is jsut pretty. So please dont compare Ashanti with Ciara cause if you put Ciara and Ashanti on stage together, Ciara would tear that ass up!!
