R&B singer Ashanti turns 41 years old in just a few days. And according to Ashanti’s reps, she’s been dieting heavily and working out religiously to make sure that her body is in tip top shape when she rings in a new born year.

Oh, and Ashanti’s people wanted Media Take Out to know that she lost 15 pounds all of her body parts are 100% natural.

Media Take Out learned that Ashanti is planning on releasing some new music – and re-record some of her old tracks, and plans a new world tour to go along with it.

We can’t wait to hear her new tracks. If they sound as good as Shanti looks- it’s going to be FIRE.


In 2002, Ashanti released her eponymous debut album, which sold over 505,000 copies throughout the U.S. in its first week of release. The album earned her many awards, including eight Billboard Music Awards, two American Music Awards, and a Grammy Award in 2003 for Best Contemporary R&B Album. The album has since been certified triple platinum in the United States and sold six million copies worldwide by the end of 2003.

The lead single for the album, “Foolish”, was a critical and commercial success; it reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. With “Foolish”, she became the second artist (after The Beatles) to have their first three chart entries in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously. Ashanti wrote and sang for Jennifer Lopez’s “Ain’t It Funny (Murder Remix)”, which also reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Aside from music, Ashanti has also acted in various productions. In 2005, she made her feature film debut in Coach Carter alongside Samuel L. Jackson, as well as starring as Dorothy Gale in the made-for-television film The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz, which attracted nearly 8 million viewers when it premiered. She has since appeared in the films John Tucker Must Die (2006) and Resident Evil: Extinction (2007).
