Whether it’s a celebration of her oldies or a display of her new work off of Braveheart, Ashanti’s show will feature that same honeyed voice we all know and love. The R&B princess’ new sound is reminiscent of her past hits while exploring the new trappy sound omnipresent in today’s R&B/rap/hip-hop hybrids. Her voice cascades in that very familiar and rich manner, a powerful blend of high control and loose flow that feels like a lullaby while grinding like a rap verse. One of pop’s sexiest singers and performers, Ashanti will put on a stunning show and likely cover all the bases we’d expect from the urban soul legend.
