A Whole Number Of Firsts For Ashanti

Dazzling R&B singer Ashanti has become the first female artist to feature on both the No 1 and No 2 single on the US charts.

Ashanti’s new single ‘Foolish’ currently resides at No 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Ashanti also features on ‘What’s Luv’ by Fat Joe, which is the No 2 single in the US this week.

Ashanti is the first female singer to capture the No 1 and No 2 position in the same week, but she can also boast to yet more chart success. Her collaboration with Ja Rule, entitled ‘Always On Time’ is still in the US Top 20.

Ashanti is the first artist to have two consecutive singles enter the chart at No 1 since Christina Aguilera. (Foolish and Ja Rule’s Always On Time)

Furthermore, Ashanti’s debut self titled album has also retained the No 1 spot on the US album charts, making it the first album to make two weeks at US No 1 since Alicia Keys’ ‘Songs In A Minor’ last year.

Ashanti’s album sales have also marked her out as a record breaker, the album became the biggest selling album within one week of sales since Lauryn Hill’s ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill’, selling a phenomenal 503,000 units. Ashanti’s self titled album is out now.

So y’all know what to do right? You don’t, I hear you say? Well, be sure to request her like crazy of course. Be sure to also check out her latest single ‘Happy’, as previously mentioned on Pop-music.com. Very cool number that one.
