Now in paperback published to coincide with the release of her new album Grammy winner and #1 recording artist Ashanti shares her very personal collection of poems and stories about love.
Bestselling recording artist Ashanti stormed the pop charts with her debut album, Ashanti, going all the way to #1 and staying there for 10 weeks, garnering legions of loyal fans and earning her the nickname "Princess of Hip Hop." Ashanti went on to sell more copies than any other female artist's debut album in history, winning the singer eight Billboard Music Awards and a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. Her follow-up, Chapter II, debuted at the top spot as well and quickly went platinum within a month of its release.
In Foolish/Unfoolish, Ashanti explores the same themes that make her music so real for her fans stories of falling head-over-heels in love, becoming broken-hearted or insanely jealous, getting over it, and loving life and offers fans an intimate look into her life.
Ashanti first sang in a gospel choir at age six. Her professional music career began in 1994 when her performance at a local talent show caught the eyes of music industry insiders. She has been writing poetry since she was 13 years old. She lives in Glen Cove, New York.
