Ashanti has finally confirmed the release date for her forthcoming album, Braveheart.
After months of anticipation, the singer has revealed that her album will drop on March 14 … If all goes according to plan. The album was originally slated for a 2012 release, but has clearly experienced some major delays.
While on the red carpet at the Soul Train Awards, HipHollywood caught up with Ashanti to talk about why the album kept getting pushed back. “I wanted it to be right,” she said. “It’s been so long it doesn’t make sense to put it out after all this time and you’re not happy completely with it.”
Along with announcing the hopeful final release date, the star also unveiled the cover art for the long awaited LP.
On Wednesday morning, the singer posted on Instagram a third image of what she says will be the album’s official cover art. In the image, a stunning Ashanti can be seen with her eyes closed as she softly touches her hair.
Braveheart, which will feature Rick Ross, French Montana and Busta Rhymes marks the singer’s first studio album since 2008.
