“I’m excited. The album is a Braveheart and its coming in March,” she said. “I’m amped!”
Despite much criticism, the 33-year-old said she understands how to deal with her naysayers now. “It’s part of the game, you know what I mean? You have to have a thick skin regardless and I feel like it comes with the territory,” she explained. “It’s not surprising. You have to be a strong person to deal with criticism and you take it for what it’s worth. There’s constructive criticism, there’s hate and you just have to decipher between the two and use it as a tool.”
During a previous interview, Ashanti said this album is “something very deep.”
“I’m going places that I haven’t gone on different albums,” she said. “It’s something for women, just being empowering.”
