Ashanti Performs ‘Never Should Have’ on ‘Marie’

Ashanti

Ashanti made the television rounds this week to promote “Army Wives” and her upcoming album BraveHeart. Following her appearances on “The Chew” and the “Today” show, the R&B songstress returned to “Marie” on the Hallmark Channel to discuss her international touring plans and launching her independent label, Written Entertainment.

“It’s a lot of work, but it’s a wonderful thing,” she told Marie Osmond. “It’s a wonderful experience to have your hands all over your own project.”

She also performed her new single “Never Should Have” for the first time on television. She poured her heart out as she delivered the emotional R&B ballad off her first album in five years.

Watch her stirring set below.

    Just the fact that you think she lip synched that is a true testament to her live vocal strength and superiority. Ashanti is a force of nature whether you guys wanna acknowledge that or not! I love her and this song! I can’t wait until she goes on tour.

    Whatever she lip synced or not I’m here for it this was a great performance I don’t believe she was lip syncing I think the time that she took off she jus got her vocals together, I’m gonna definitely have this performance on repeat

    I actually love this song – well written lyrics and very emotional delivery but I there is just something awkward and distracting about her when she performs live.

    How did she lip synced when she isnt even singing on sync with the actual song! sounds totally different in a good way! listen to the way she vocally arranged the song!

    It’s obvious some of you don’t know what lip syncing is maybe you confusing it with singing with a track.

    People honestly know this is a great performance and the haters even know it, thats why the only thing they can say now is, “lyp-syncing”. lmao when its pretty CLEAR that she actually singing live. But to be honest im glad they think its lip-syncing, cuz that mean her vocals were on point and she sounded like the studio version. #CongratsAshanti

    Ashanti was never a great singer to me she was kinda like Brandy, she always knew how to make a classic song! I don’t know why she stopped tho. Glad to see her going on cuz she’s still young and she can create great classic music…….This song is gonna put her in another lane……
