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.

[quote comment="43754"]I guess I am the odd person out cause I don't like the video or the song. [/quote] You're not alone. I'm not feeling the song, nor am I impressed with the video. She doesn't have the right type of voice for this song. I don't hear any growth in her voice. And the song itself isn't anything different; it's on the same lines of the songs she has done in the past. The video concept isn't unique either.

Ok, Ashanti... I respect it... I thought she was down for the count, but this video and this song is classic Ashanti, but a more grown up one, too. Hot.

I guess I am the odd person

I guess I am the odd person out cause I don't like the video or the song. I have never been a fan of Ashanti. I think she can write but her voice is no good and her stage presence is not good either. There have been a few songs of her that I did like such as "Happy", "Baby", and "Only You"...and I liked "Always On Time" with her Ja Rule...but that is it. But I guess she taking a different turn in her career so it will be interesting to see where her sound goes...

Never really been an Ashanti

Never really been an Ashanti fan, but this video is pretty hot. Not sure how I feel about the concept of stabbin' someone, cause that's "doing the most", but overall, good job. I'm feeling the wardrobe as well.

Wow. People really be hating

Wow. People really be hating on Ashanti sooooo bad! The girl is not a Beyonce or Mariah, but she's better than Rhianna and Ciara... am I right? Personally, I love the song and the video. I think she sounds great and she looks great. Also, she chose the perfect time to come back out cuz she really doesn't have any competition right now. Clever...

She still can't sing, good

She still can't sing, good thing that her body is banging and her face is pretty cause that's all she's got.. that and a lifetime supply of Band-Aids. I am so glad that I didn't grow up in the last decade, these kids nowadays are exposed to so much violence and that video was violent as hell.. what's more violent than the Knuckles? NOTHING! I'd break your neck fool.
