Ashanti sent social media into overdrive this week after putting up a photo of her “perfectly crafted” curves.
The 38-year-old R&B singer paraded around her “thickness” in a sexy bathing suit from her recent swimwear collection released July 1. She took to Instagram early Monday morning and posted a profile shot of her rump-shaker while seemingly enjoying her extended stay in Saint Philip, Barbados.
She stood in front of a garden while posing barefoot in her peacock swimsuit and displayed her naked derriere and thighs for her four million followers to view. Ashanti went for a no-makeup look and rocked her signature beach waves. Posing for the ‘Gram, she enticingly gazed into the camera lens and angled her body from the side, slightly sticking out her backside.
“Sometimes you gotta make a move,” the singer captioned the sexy image.
Her post accumulated over 300,000 likes and a mass of fan flattery.
“Tooooot Toooot!! 🤤 that 🍑 Looking on point…. keep up the great work gob bless @ashanti.”
“😍😱 yoooo she crazy sexy son! I’ll take this as a sign to shoot my shot 👌 and i’m still crushing.”
“Where did all of that come from? 🤔👅 Shanti gotta Big Ole Butt.. ( oh yeah) 🎶 i been in love.”
“Lord have mercy 😩 she look so damn good #foreverYoung .. want u forever.”
Although some women dread the swimsuit season, Ashanti clearly isn’t one of them.
She not only eats healthy and hits the gym, but she’s extremely confident in what she wears and her natural curves.
“My secret is really figuring out which cuts look the best of my body,” she told Haute Living in July. “First and foremost, you must feel confident from the inside out. … A nice cut bathing suit just adds the flavor. … It also doesn’t hurt to hit the gym and eat right.”
Ashanti said there are many factors that help with her confidence such as “being a woman in this industry, having success, and being able to inspire women to be great.”
She continued, “Taking care of myself and really understanding how to be healthy mentally and physically is so important!”
As for music, the singer said she’ll finally be releasing a new EP following her 2014 Braveheart album which dropped over five years ago.
“I am so excited about me and Metro Boomin are executive producing it,” she said. “We have finally decided what the vibe is.”
