Ashanti releases new music video for “2:35 I Want You”

Hot off her Verzuz battle with Keyshia Cole last week, Ashanti returns with a music video for her new single, “2:35 (I Want You).”

The visual finds the R&B princess seductively dancing for her significant other while expressing her desire for his love and affection. 

“Cause ooh / My body begging for you / Ain’t no mistake, you the truth / And I can’t wait till we ooh / we ooh Said ooh,” Ashanti sings on the chorus. 

“2:35 (I Want You)” marks Ashanti’s first solo release since her 2014 album, Bravehart, under her imprint label, Written Entertainment. It was her first album after leaving her former label, Murder Inc. Records. Last year, the Grammy-winning singer teamed up with DaBaby and Megan Thee Stallion on “Nasty,” which sampled her #1 single, “Baby.” Ashanti also joined rapper Joyner Lucas on “Fall Slowly.” 

Prior to the pandemic, Ashanti held it down as the leading lady on the Millennium Tour with Omarion and Bow Wow before it was shut down due to COVID-19. 

No word on if or when Ashanti will release her next full-length project.
