Ashanti has been busy making these promotional rounds!
While chatting it up with NYC’s hip-hop/R&B radio station, HOT 97, the 32-year-old singer turned actress was the most candid as she spoke with host Ebro and K. Foxx of the morning show.
Clearly there to promote her forthcoming album (Braveheart) and the upcoming finale of her drama series, Army Wives, there’s no surprise that Ashanti chuckled at questions about Nelly (her former boo). In the middle of her describing the role she plays on Army Wives, the impromptu Nelly conversation popped right up:
We’re cool. I spoke to him yesterday, the other day. We’re good.
Further dodging questions regarding her former flame, she insinuated the two were never an item. But no one was buying it.
Ashanti: What do you mean? What was there to break up? I don’t understand.
Ebro: Wait what? What you tryna act like y’all wasn’t in a relationship? … We’re not gonna play the game ‘Were Ashanti and Nelly ever really…’ We’re not playing that game.
Luckily for the clearly nervous singer, Ebro changed the subject to focus on her music again.
On production/collabration on the album:
I did some stuff with Cool & Dre. I did some stuff with Detail, he’s super dope. Just recently, Meek, French…
On Irv Gotti’s involvement:
[Irv's] not really [involved]. I wouldn’t say that.
