Collectables by Ashanti is a compilation album by American R&B-pop singer Ashanti, released in 2005.

Background[edit]

The album, which consists of six remixes of past singles and four new tracks, was released as a way for Ashanti to get out of her contract with the Murder Inc/Def Jam label. The album had a parental advisory,[2] but a "clean" version was also released.[3]

Commercial performance[edit]

The album debuted and peaked at number #59 on the Billboard 200.[4] The album also became Ashanti's fourth to reach the Top 10 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, peaking at number 10.[4] "Still On It," the only single released from the album, was a commercial disappointment, peaking at number 55 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart and failing to enter the Hot 100 altogether.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

The album elicited a mixed reaction from music critics upon its release. AllMusic's Andy Kellman was skeptical of the album, noting that it looks "illegit." He went on to call the album "a lukewarm scramble of some of her biggest singles," also commenting that casual fans would be disappointed by the record but awarding the album three stars nonetheless and commending "Still on It" for being "ruggedly sweet" and "I Love You" for being "drama-free."[1]
