Ashanti is ready to put the Murder Inc, era behind her and stand alone on her own two feet. The self-anointed Princess of R&B inked a new worldwide distribution and label services partnership with eOne Music and her own imprint Written Entertainment.
“I’m so excited to have my own record label, Written Entertainment. With eOne as my distributor, I feel that their innovative and ambitious approach to the music industry, really gives my label a worldwide presence,” Ashanti says in a statement. “They have the top radio people in the business and are hungry to win! The more I learned the business the more I knew this is what I wanted. Ownership is so important. As a business woman this was a great move for me!”
The first single to be released for this partnership is the infectious new track “The Woman You Love” featuring Busta Rhymes and produced by Jerry Wonder. “What about my pride? You’re never satisfied. You made me feel like I wasn’t worth being by your side. I done sacrificed all of my damn time giving you all mine. You see me dying inside,” Ashanti croons on the track.
Fans can expect a new album from the Grammy winner in 2012.
