Ashanti talks upcoming Afrobeats-inspired EP.

Afrobeats seems to be the in thing now, and Ashanti kind of alludes that her upcoming EP will take on this direction. This is the type of thing that fosters that conversation about folks profiteering off afrobeats and other genres. Ciara kind of put it back on the map with her last project and Rihanna already stated her new album will be heavily Island-influenced. I liked Ashanti when her music was beneficial to my ears and she still puts out bops. But at the same time, I'm all for her recent fluidity and experimenting with international acts and styles.
