Ashanti's long-awaited album 'The Declaration' is delayed one week after alleged fear of competition to Mariah Carey's.
Ashanti's return to music scene has been delayed by one week. The R&B singer's album 'The Declaration' is pushed back from December 4 to December 11.
Words have it that the delay was because Mariah Carey's 'Sweet Soul Odyssey' will be dropped on date 4, although both artists are under the same Universal Music wing.
Meanwhile, Ashanti's previously confirmed first single 'Hey Baby (After the Club)' will be made its music video soon. Renown music video director Hype Williams who famously worked with her in 'Only U' (2004), will take the project again. Shooting will begin in Los Angeles this weekend.
