As expected, online retailers have pushed back the release date for Ashanti‘s ‘Braveheart’ album from June 19th to August 28th, 2012.
Although Ashanti has never announced an actual release date, Amazon always gets them from somewhere (the record label in most cases). A pushback was clearly on the cards ever since lead single ‘The Woman You Love’ failed to make an impact on the chart. Nelly Furtado was also due to release her new album ‘The Spirit Indestructible’ on June 19th putting her in direct competition with Justin Bieber‘s ‘Believe’. With lead single ‘Big Hoops’ not being the hit that it should be, she has wisely pushed back the project to September 11th.
Ashanti is now preparing to put out a second single (rumoured to drop next month) before the release of ‘Braveheart’. Last week, she revealed: “I got the mix emailed to me about one of the records that I’m going to be releasing very soon so I’m really excited about that”.
It’s about time she got the memo and moved on to the next!
