Ashanti Performs ‘The Woman You Love’ Live in Atlanta [Video]

Ashanti

Ashanti was back on the scene. In addition to visiting several Atlanta radio stations on Friday, the R&B singer graced the stage at Tom Joyner’s “Sky Show” to celebrate the release of George Lucas’ film Red Tails. In addition to her classics, she performed her new Busta Rhymes-assisted single “The Woman You Love” live for the first time.

“I have a new record out right now. It’s called ‘The Woman You Love,’” Ashanti told the crowd, which included T.I. and Tiny. “And I know we’ve all been in a situation where we just tryna do everything, tryna be the perfect person—whether you’re a male or female—you just want that person to love you.”

Watch the fan-filmed footage below.

    She sounded good but I’m not sure why she let the track sing so much of the chorus. I think this would sound better live with backup vocalists instead of just playback.

    Love the record. Her vocals have improved TREMENDOUSLY; however, like someone else stated I think it would have sounded better without so much backing from the track. I’d love to hear this with a live band and backing vocalists. But keep the promo up Shan! You’re off to a good start this year.

    I love Ashanti and I am a huge fan, but I must say her stage presence as a performer is weak. The description of the song laid a lyrical foundation about what she was gonna be singing about which is fine, as a artist, you’re suppose to engage the audience, have a conversation with them. However, I wanted more from her…I see she’s still doing the wave the mic in the air thing and strutin’ across the stage. It’s very passe, something she does all the time. The production of the sound is gritty , and I expect some kind of dance number. Eh…

    On a lighter note, the vocals have improved; she sounds more grounded instead of singing in her upper register all whiny and slightly annoying. My only complaint is about the backtrack on the hook really necessary? I mean, some parts of the chorus she could have filled in like: Tryna see (tryna fight!)…I would have definitely love to see her hit the “OH!” part.

    Other than that, “The Woman You Love” has been gaining momentum on radio waves due to word of mouth and request. The blogs are blazing about the song. I don’t know for sure if this is the official lead single, but it most definitely feels good to have an authentic R&B/Hip-Hop singer back on the airwaves. Welcome back, Shan! This new era will be very interesting to see unravel, I wish nothing but the best for success! ;)

    Ashanti! I love her and her vocals have improved so much, glad to know she hasn’t just been sitting around. She just keeps on improving her craft. I cannot wait for her new album.

    0_0 let me preface my statement by saying that I wish Ashanti the best and I do like the song but for all the people above me praising her “live” vocals……Anyone who is a connoisseur of live performances can tell that she lip-synched to a back track. And the audience’s reaction (or lack there of) to this performance is a direct reflection of how the world is receiving Ashantis new single right now. Which is not very well at all. But as I said i LIKE, (dont love), the song. If the video is as good as the Rain On Me video was then that would help alot. And again I am not hating, before all 5 of her stans come attacking me.

    @@Brass_knucklez, She didn’t lip the hole thing, primarily the chorus. & the audience was more receptive in person. Other videos showcase that. She’s gotten many good reviews on the song and it’s doing fair at radio being that she is just starting to promote the single and it does not go out for official radio release until tomorrow (Jan 23rd).
