Throwback Thursdays: Fat Joe Feat. Ashanti – What’s Luv?

Posted 06/21/2012 by Tru in New Music

A decade has passed and music is definitely far away from this track. Everything is alot faster and maybe the same cheesy-ness.

Ah well. This is a guilty pleasure. Much like Ja Rule’s Always On Time, Ashanti is the main reason I stick around and bop my head to this track. Her vocals are smooth and top notch during this time. She’s great support, smoothing out the rough gangster vibe to make these tracks more accessible to the masses. And the masses rewarded her.

A Fat Joe and Ashanti Classic Jam

2002 was the year Ashanti became the first female artist to simultaneously land the top two spots on the Hot 100 chart. In the course of a month, ‘Foolish‘ and ‘What’s Luv’ stood at #1 and #2 respectively. Props to her grand entry into mainstream music.

Unfortunately, her luck lately has been minimal. From the sound of it, her come back album Braveheart is now being pushed to a 2013 release date. This is the second notice of a push wish means there’s not much confidence for the album. If you’re a fan, reach out to Ashanti and show her some love!

Fat Joe, he’s still kicking around remaining on the radar on some mixtapes. Hopefully he comes out with a monster equal to ‘Lean Back

In the mean time let’s lay back and check out one of the hottest jams of 2002.
