R&B princess Ashanti is ready for her return to music stardom, including the launch her own label, Written Entertainment. In this recent interview with “Access Hollywood Live,” the 31-year-old singer spoke about moving on from her past deals and taking her career into her own hands.
The burgeoning businesswoman learned some valuable lessons along the way. “Being with the major [label] taught me that I need a way bigger percentage than what they were giving me,” joked Ashanti. “It’s about the profit sharing now and everything is digital and I’m cutting my own deal with iTunes. It’s about learning the behind the scenes to become a better business woman.”
Ashanti’s fifth album is due this summer on Written Entertainment/eOne. The first single, “The Woman You Love” featuring Busta Rhymes, is available right now on iTunes and Amazon digital.
