Plies Thanks Ashanti For ‘Need It’ Clip, Samples Babyface

Plies is ready for the world to see his rework of the 1987 R&B classic “Two Occasions” and he’s already thanking Ashanti for her role. “It’s a hell of a record — an old Babyface sample.. actually, it was the Deel that first used it; Babyface used it after that,” Plies told MTV during the video shoot for “Want It, Need It”. Citing his chemistry with former “Only You” singer Ashanti, Plies say “I think that chemistry is something that always works for me. It’s a female-driven record to a certain extent, but it’s me speaking to the goons as usual.” Ashanti, who sings “Oh boy, I think of you on two occasions, that’s when I want it, that’s when I need it,” complements Plies rap “Sex on delivery, S.O.D.” Plies’ cut with Ashanti, “Want It, Need It,” is slated to hit networks like MTV and BET soon.
