Ashanti is back with a hit new single "The Way That I Love You" and new album "The Declaration" due in stores June 3rd!

Making her stunning entrance in a dizzying cascade of piano and layered vocals, The Inc./Universal Motown Recording Artist ASHANTI puts it all on the line in the powerfully soulful and grandly dramatic “The Way That I Love You,” the first single and video from her upcoming album THE DECLARATION.

The home truths of ASHANTI’s “The Way That I Love You” are drawing a loud “Amen” from the radio and video outlets that have supported her from day one of her multi-platinum career as an artist and songwriter. The track is the No. 1 most-added song at Urban-formatted radio in it’s first week, with more than 50 adds at major stations blanketing the east, midwest, south and west coast.

The video clip of “The Way That I Love You” is an immediate add on BET, MTV Jams, and MTV Hits. Ashanti co-hosted BET’s 106th & Park to introduce the video and leak details of the new album.  She also appeared on MTV’s TRL as part of Spankin’ New Music Week.  The video reached the #1 spot with the most views on MTV.com and came in #2 on the TRL countdown in the first week. THE DECLARATION is scheduled for release June 3, 2008 on The Inc./Universal Motown. Album producers and collaborators include such luminaries as Robin Thicke, Jermaine Dupri, LT Hutton, Babyface, and Pharrell Williams.

Grammy-winner ASHANTI has been a trailblazer and role model for the new breed of multi-talented young artists since her 2001 chart debut as a featured artist on the No. 1 Ja Rule single “Always on Time.” She made history at the 2002 release of her first album Ashanti, which entered at No. 1 nationally, and sold 504,593 in its first week, granting her a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.  In the same week, she held the No. 1 and No. 2 singles in the Billboard Hot 100, with her self-written solo single “Foolish” and her collaboration with Fat Joe, “What’s Luv?” and with “Always on Time,” became the only artist since The Beatles to have her first three singles charting in the Top 10 simultaneously. Ashanti also co-wrote a fourth song in the same week’s Top 10, Jennifer Lopez’ “Ain’t It Funny.”

Both of ASHANTI’s succeeding albums, Chapter II and Concrete Rose, are certified by RIAA for sales in excess of a million copies. As an actress, Ashanti appeared in the No. 1 box-office smashes Coach Carter and Resident Evil: Extinction, and in John Tucker Must Die and Bride and Prejudice. She is the author of the poetry collection Foolish/Unfoolish: Reflections on Love, and the forthcoming teen-targeted life and style book Ashanti Style (Jump at the Sun/Hyperion).
