Wait a minute – singers are just like us?! You bet your right tear duct they are.

Ashanti Turns Up the Heat with New Look in Jimmy Kimmel Performance

Ashanti’s back! Resurfacing from her nearly four year hiatus–her last album Declaration dropped in 2008– the once crowned princess of R&B has something to prove. Along with gearing up for her fifth studio album Braveheart, Ashanti revealed a smoking hot new look at her live performance on Jimmy Kimmel in LA. Her long curly burgundy red and black tresses bounced freely as she performed “The Woman You Love,” the explosive single from her upcoming album to be released June 19.  Her latest single is true to form– an amazing beat with lyrics that any woman whose been in love with no reciprocity can relate to. It doesn’t hurt that Busta Rhymes delivers an incomparable flow that only Busta could. In her performance she croons over the instruments, pleading to be the woman he loves. After making her case, she decides she’s fed up and sings, “You’re just no good.” Don’t mess with a woman scorned. With lyrics like that we wonder if the Braveheart title resembles her need to be brave to love again, or a warning to future boyfriends that he’ll need a brave heart to deal get with her. Ashanti looks great and sounds good. Girlfriend has even been working on her dance moves. Work, girl! Read more…


MTV Hive Presents Livestreams From UK Sensation Katy B And You Oughta Know Alum Two Door Cinema Club

MTV Hive‘s Live in NYC series doubles up this week, with full sets streaming live from Rinse FM house diva Katy B tonight at 9:30PM EDT and from Irish indie-pop rockers (and You Oughta Know alums) Two Door Cinema Club tomorrow at 9:00PM EDT. We’ve told you all about Two Door Cinema Club; as for Katy B, she’s an up-and-coming UK vocalist who’s been working with some of London’s best house producers; (hear “Katy On A Mission” below).

After launching the series with Marina and the Diamonds on June 30 they invited us to last month’s excellent Horrors show, and we suspect that tonight’s and tomorrow’s shows will be just as good. (MTVHive sure loves bands from the British Isles, though, don’t they!) If you can tune in, we recommend it. If not, MTVHive should share both sets afterwards?though likely only for a limited time.
