In a recent interview with Ebony, Ashanti reflected on the R&B scene and believe's there is something missing with new R&B.
Ashanti revealed “I feel like there’s a void. I feel like people want it, but there’s not a lot of true, passionate, R&B music, when you think about it. Telling a story, being vulnerable and being visual.”
The star has recently also teased new music with Ja Rule.
