Rap-Up TV: Ashanti Talks Young Money Rumors, ‘Braveheart’ Album

Is Ashanti the next Young Money Millionaire? The R&B diva stepped out to Cash Money’s Pre-Grammy Party in West Hollywood over the weekend. But when asked about rumors that she may be joining Lil Wayne and his YMCMB family, she remained coy.

“We’ll see,” she told Rap-Up TV on the red carpet. “Those are my peoples.”

Ashanti is currently wrapping her fifth album Braveheart, due this summer, and is readying a new single.

“We’re definitely going with a new single,” said Ashanti, who is also gearing up to shoot a video. “I’m super excited about it. Hopefully we’ll be shooting in another two to three weeks. Amazing record.”

She also spoke about her collaborations with R. Kelly (“That’s What We Do”) and Keyshia Cole (“Woman to Woman”). The ladies plan to shoot a video for their duet off Keyshia’s album Woman to Woman soon.

Additionally, she can be seen in the Lifetime series “Army Wives.” “It’s a wonderful cast, wonderful opportunity,” she said. “It’s a platform. It’s all about being visible.”
