Biography

So when we were offered the opportunity to release a Genard Parker produced and co-written album by Ashanti, we genuinly jumped at the chance... “Can’t Stop” was written and recorded in 1997 and was set for release approx one year later. History now shows that this never happened. That is until now…September 2004 saw the tapes back in the studio where in the hands of Genard Parker and Ernie Lake they were fully re-mixed and re-mastered using today’s latest Cutting Edge "Pro Tool" equipment…And the resulting product is nothing less than Pure Genius. In all there are ten brand new songs nine of which are true ballads that are sung from the heart and showcase one of the world’s most beautiful female voices. In essence this is Ashanti’s first studio album and laid down the foundations for what she has become…one of the world’s great RnB Superstars…. Since these songs were first recorded Ashanti has sung with some of Hip Hop’s finest including Ja Rule and LL Cool J and has just released a single with R-Kelly that is destined to be a world wide #1…
