The new single from Ashanti sheds light on her relationship with Nelly in a way we have never heard before.
Ashanti, (who’s second calling may well have been politics) has always been very secretive about her relationship with Nelly and even till this very day playfully dances around the question as to whether or not they were even ever together even though Stevie Wonder could see they were.
Ashanti who broke up with Nelly amidst rumours of Nelly cheating has (almost) confirmed the rumours as true, claiming that she is still good friends with Nelly.
“It’s very obvious that the song came from a sincere place. A lot of people are asking, ‘What is that about?’ or ‘Who is that about?’ It came from a very sincere place. A lot of people have been in a situation where they’ve been betrayed or lied to or taken advantage of.”
“I mean, listen…things happen, people get hurt, people have resentment, people carry old things with them. Things just happen in real life. You go through things, I go through things, It’s a little bit of both. Some of it’s generic and some things are about me. Do I go through things? Absolutely. He has to do what he has to do right now, and I have to do what I have to do right now, because sometimes you can distract each other.”
