New York R&B singer Ashanti is making her rounds at various media publications in effort to promote her latest album “Braveheart.” The former Murder Inc. princess stopped by AOL’s The Boombox and after giving an interview pushing her album, she gave an intimate performance of legendary singer Chaka Khan‘s signature hit “Sweet Thang.”
Ashanti performed with passion and really stretched her vocal chords to hit those lofty notes only Chaka can, but it was still a nice performance. Check that out below.
Since Chaka Khan is one of the standards of what real R&B should sound like, we found some other new age R&B divas paying respects to Chaka Khan. After watching a few of them, where does Ashanti land in the ranking of best Chaka Khan covers.
We normally like to be the judge and jury, but this time we’ll let you decide.
Kelly Price – “Ain’t Nobody” (2002)
Mary J. Blige – “Sweet Thang” (1992)
