Ashanti is going back to studio to re-record her self-titled debut album, Ashanti. The US singer now owns the masters to the Grammy-winning album and now wants to drop it under her own record label.
The CEO of Written Entertainment released her first album nearly 20 years ago and is now on a mission to redo the project and release it for the second time. According to those in the know, Ashanti will now have full control of the album and will get a lion's share of the money the re-recorded project will make.
Ashanti dropped the project back in April 2002. The album featured hit singles such as Baby, Happy and Foolish.
