Video: Ashanti – ‘Never Should Have’

Ashanti pours her heart out in the video for “Never Should Have,” the latest single off her first album in five years BraveHeart, due June 11. The R&B songstress conveys heartbreak through the emotional storylines. A teary-eyed Ashanti sings on the beach and wears a purple dress on a deserted road in the Sanji Senaka-directed clip, which was shot in Santa Barbara, Calif.

“It’s something for women, just being empowering. This album is something very deep,” the “Army Wives” star said of the follow-up to 2008’s The Declaration, which features production from Jerry Wonda, Detail, and Sak Pase. “I’m going places that I haven’t gone on different albums.”
