I Got It

Album: BraveHeart (2014)
  • This fast-paced Trap song finds Ashanti celebrating her accolades in the love department. "I don't think you're ready… tell me what you trying to do," she sings to a potential suitor. It was released as the singer's 15th single twelve years after her first, "Foolish," topped the charts in 2002.
  • The song originally featured Future's Auto-Tune signature vocals and that version can be heard on DJ Ty Boogie's Str8 RnB pt. 6 mixtape, hosted by Ashanti. This new version retains the Astronaut Kid's ad-libs, but it's Rick Ross who gets to spit a verse.
  • Rick Ross manages to promote his Mastermind album on his braggadocio verse, which was released the same month as BraveHeart. "They said I'm hard to kill, there's money on my head," he spits."Mastermind coming, still running from the feds."
