Ashanti – Scars

Ashanti Shequoiya Douglas (born October 13, 1980) is an American recording artist, record producer, dancer, and actress. Ashanti is most famous for her eponymous debut album, which featured the hit song “Foolish”, and sold over 503,000 copies in its first week of release throughout the U.S. in April 2002. The album set a Soundscan record as the biggest opening week sales for a new female artist, outselling debuts by Alicia Keys and Lauryn Hill. In the same week, she became the first female performer to simultaneously hold the top two places on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with “Foolish”, and “What’s Luv?” (with Fat Joe). Ashanti broke records again by having three top ten songs, “Foolish,” “What’s Luv?” and “Always on Time”, on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in the same week, being the first woman to accomplish this feat and being second only to the Beatles. In 2003, the self-titled debut album won Ashanti her first Grammy Award for Best Contemporary R&B album. As of 2008, Ashanti has sold over 15 million records worldwide. Ashanti ended the decade (2000–09) as the third top new R&B artist behind Alicia Keys and Beyoncé. She also ended the decade at number 38 on the Top Artist of the Decade list. She is currently on the list of The Twenty Best Selling Music Singles Since 1990 for her single Foolish for selling 7.2 million copies to-date. Ashanti wrote and sang background on Jennifer Lopez’s “Ain’t It Funny (Murder Remix)”, which reached number one on Billboard Hot 100, which was also in the top 10 chart at the same time as “Foolish”, “Always on Time” (with Ja Rule), and “What’s Luv” (with Fat Joe). Later that year, she was acclaimed as the “Princess Of Hip-Hop & R&B” by her label and capped off her successful debut by winning eight Billboard awards and two American Music Awards. Within seven years of Ashanti’s career, she has scored 16 top 40 hits on the Hot 100. Ashanti has endorsed numerous products including Gap, Herbal Essences and Mudd Jeans. Ashanti cites Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Prince, Madonna, Tupac Shakur, Mary J. Blige, Ella Fitzgerald, Smokey Robinson, Donna Summer, and Blue Magic as her musical influences. Praised as a gifted songwriter by her peers and critics alike, Ashanti has written/co-written the bulk of all her music. She is currently working on her own publishing company titled Written Entertainment. She released her fifth studio album, titled BraveHeart, on March 4, 2014. She also performed the charity tune “Just Stand Up” alongside 15 other female singers for the “Stand Up to Cancer” live television special which helped raise $100 million for cancer research.

Ashanti – Scars

Ashanti – Scars Lyrics:
Yeah, he’s a walkin’, talkin’, living regret
I wish I never met him, never slept wid him
Never been by myself.
If I would have known better
I would have never stayed together with you
He knows that I’m gone. And I ain’t coming back
Wish I could be vindictive
So I can hurt him back
And I’m gon’ make sure
I’m drop dead gorgeous everytime he see me
So he wanted more
And I’mma make sure everything
Is successful
He fucking his ego
He lost when he let me go
I was probably the best thing
That happened to him, he know
Crazy, can’t find, there ain’t nothing like mine
Oh, man, you was just tough,
I guess he couldn’t man his own balls
Gave you everything, all of me
All my heart, and I leave it, the start

These scars, these scars
You could have left the game
My heart is lame, nothing remains
Under these scars

Now, I can barely make a stand in here
Look in your face
Though you disgrace, to who we were and what we have
Know we was on it
Like Usher, we both had it bad
Everything you thought that we stood for
I’m taking all that back

He knows that I’m gone
And I ain’t coming back
Wish I could be vindictive
So I can hurt him back

And I’m gon’ make sure
I’m drop dead gorgeous everytime he see me
So he wanted more.
