Ashanti has a lot going for herself these days. Aside from her many acting gigs in the works, the R&B veteran has secured ownership of her masters. She shared the news during an interview on the Tamron Hall Show.
â€œItâ€™s so surreal,â€ she told Hall virtually. â€œI have an amazing legal team, and I got my first record deal when I was 14 years old. So understanding and seeing how things have changed so much from then to now and conceptually understanding what youâ€™re signing is so imperative and so important nowadays.â€
Following the announcement, Ashanti also revealed that she is re-recording her self-titled debut album, which was released in 2002 and won the inaugural Best Contemporary R&B Album at the 2003 Grammys.
Sheâ€™ll be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the album next year, during which she will have received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Circling back to Ashantiâ€™s growing acting resume, on October 19, Ashanti is starring in the live-action film Honey Girls. Her next big role is The Plus One, a romantic comedy she will star and produce. Production starts in Florida in December.
