Ashanti is not playing with any woman that calls her man Nelly (who we’re going to imagine she’s referring to) in her new duet “That’s What We Do” with R.Kelly. If she loves you then she’s going to, “Now I’mma look through your phone, and I’mma call back that number. I’mma curse out that h- and let her know to stay away from ya.” Kellz assists her on the hook co-signing her antics with, “’cause that’s what we do.” And let Ashanti tell it, doing all this snooping only means that she loves the guy.
On her latest single from the forthcoming Bravehearts album the Pied Piper lends his vocals for the second verse in addition to the hook and ad libs he croons. The semi-uptempo record with simple piano keys and drum beats has the traditional Ashanti style. Kellz adds the classic sound that gives any track the extra spark it needs to pop. The two make a great team, even if it’s about some rather, er, questionable behavior within a relationship. That’s ok though. As long as it sounds good.
