Ashanti is going independent for her next album.
Earlier this week, the Grammy Award-winning singer announced her new worldwide distribution deal with eOne Music. She’s currently signed to her own record label called Written Entertainment. She will be releasing her first album via Written Entertainment/eOne Music next year, with “The Woman You Love” as the lead single.
“I’m so excited to have my own record label, Written Entertainment. With eOne as my distributor, I feel that their innovative and ambitious approach to the music industry, really gives my label a worldwide presence,” Ashanti says via a press release. “They have the top radio people in the business and are hungry to win! The more I learned the business the more I knew this is what I wanted. Ownership is so important. As a business woman this was a great move for me!”
