Singer, songwriter, actor and author, Ashanti burst onto the music scene with her 2002 smash hit debut album self-titled Ashanti. The album landed at the number one spot on both the Billboard Top 200 and R&B album charts, setting a record as the most albums sold by any debut female artist in the chart’s history.
Simultaneously, Ashanti also secured the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart and the R&B/Hip Hop Singles & Tracks chart with her song, “Foolish.” She made Billboard history by having her first three chart entries land in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time. She is the first female to accomplish this feat previously only attained by the Beatles.
A Grammy winner, Ashanti has also been previously awarded multiple Billboard Awards. In addition, she’s won two American Music Awards and the Soul Train Aretha Franklin Entertainer of the Year Award as well as an NAACP Image award, numerous Soul Train awards, A MOBO (Music of Black Origin) award, A Comet award (Grammy Equivalent in Germany), Lady of Soul Awards and a Teen Choice and Nickelodeon’s Kid Choice Award, along with many other nominations including an MTV movie award nomination for “Coach Carter.”
