Ashanti‘s back and determined to reclaim her Princess of R&B title. Her new track You Can’t Deny It (Ridah) is essentially a sample of 2Pac’s Ambitions Az A Ridah. Ashanti’s voice is more suited to whispering “baby, baby, baby” rather than proclaiming “I’m a straight ridah!” Although she seems a little out of place, Jim Jones guest feature adds some grittiness. Ashanti shines at moments, but leaves us hoping the best is yet to come.
