Ashanti Opens Up About How the Music Industry Has Changed

Ashanti is on the latest digital cover of Paper, out now.

Here’s what the 37-year-old “Foolish” music superstar had to say…

On a sense of community in the music industry: “I feel like we’ve definitely moved away from the community aspect of things. There are not a lot of labels that are a crew that really celebrate together. If I was doing something, Ja [Rule] and everybody came. If Ja was doing something, me and everybody came. I don’t know where we are right now, it’s a weird space. But I do see a lot of rappers — men and women — making up instead of tearing each other down, and I’m really happy about that. It’s a ray of hope for me.”

On her relationship with social media: “When Twitter was born, even back then I definitely had the motto of ‘elephants don’t swat flies.’”

On connecting with fans online: “To have that dialogue and that important connection [with fans] where a fan feels special if you comment back when it matters most and they feel like, ‘Oh, she got love!’ — that outweighs a lot of the negative.”

Cardi B Is Making Billboard History, Ties Record with The Beatles & Ashanti

Cardi B has joined an exclusive club of artists who have charted their first three singles in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time!

The 25-year-old rapper currently has her song “No Limit” with G-Eazy and A$AP Rocky at number four, “MotorSport” with Migos and Nicki Minaj at number seven, and her solo song “Bodak Yellow” at number ten.

Cardi joins The Beatles and Ashanti as the only acts to ever achieve the cool accomplishment!

The Beatles charted “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “She Loves You,” and “Please Please Me” in the number one, two, and three slots in 1964. Ashanti charted “Foolish,” “What’s Luv?” with Fat Joe, and “Always on Time” with Ja Rule in the top ten in 2002.

The only female artists to ever have three songs in the top ten at the same time are Cardi, Adele, Iggy Azalea, and Ariana Grande.
