While Ashanti fans have waited patiently for the singer to release an up-tempo song, music bloggers everywhere have been itching to feature a collaborative record with rumored beau, Nelly. Well, Ashanti aficionados rejoice, because Long Island’s princess of The Inc. has teamed up with the St. Louis emcee and Akon for her new single, Body On Me. Set to be featured on her fourth EP, The Declaration, the song features a female singing lead, along with an opposing male lyrical perspective (a throwback to the early days of the Murderous ones?) For his part, Akon provides a two-stepping, smooth-piano beat, and sings a relatively unambiguous and clever hook. The Declaration is expected to hit stores and online retailers on June 3.
