Ashanti Talks Meaning Behind ‘Braveheart’ Album Title

Ashanti is coming back hard in the game with her new single “The Woman You Love” and has also recently announced the title of her comeback album, Braveheart.

She hasn’t spoken much about the album, just alluding to the fact that the LP has a bigger meaning behind its name than one might think. Though, if you guessed that it has to do with the movie “Braveheart” you can probably figure the rest out.

“The metaphor that I took was basically in the movie (Braveheart) you have the Europeans, you have the soldiers from London and the U.K.– They have the big horses, they have the shields, the guns, the weapons; They’re all armored up. And then you have the Scots. They’re all raggedy, homemade weapons, and paint on their faces.

It’s not an even playing ground, so I feel like with the [major labels], they’re bossed up. They have the big engine and all the artists signed to them and with the indies, it’s depending. It’s homemade, it’s homegrown. It’s a lesser engine. So the metaphor I was using was being brave and putting your blood and guts into it and fighting passionately to win.”

She’s referring to her very own label, Written Entertainment. The singing diva spoke about her business endeavor Shani went on air with Power 99 to talk about it, even though the album isn’t going to be released until mid April– this girl knows that it takes awhile to get the wheels turning.
