Records/Achievements[edit]

Guinness Book of World Records

  • She is most famous for her eponymous debut album Ashanti which featured the hit song "Foolish", and sold 503,000 copies in its first week of release in the USA in April 2002, a record-breaking feat. It was the highest first week sales for a female artist's debut ever.
  • 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).
  • She broke records again by having three Top Ten songs (Foolish, What's Luv, and Always on Time (with Ja Rule) on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in the same week.

Ironically, Ashanti wrote and sang background on the remix of "Ain't It Funny" sung by Jennifer Lopez which was also in the top 10 charts at the same time as "Foolish", "Always on Time" (with Ja Rule), and "What's Luv" (with Fat Joe) so the singer actually had four top 10 singles in the top ten.
