Ashanti stopped by Kathie Lee & Hoda this morning to announce that she will be the new executive producer and host of Fuse TV’s Fuse News. Ashanti will be the voice behind the theme song and will appear along side co-hosts, Alexa Chung, Elaine Moran, and Jack Osbourne. The daily, 30 minute program will cover pop culture, music news and current events.
It’s basically a music news show that’s kind of filling the void. We use to have TRL back in the day on MTV, and they kind of went toward reality TV. This is something that I think we’re going to pioneer and inject something back into music. I’m really excited about it… We’re basically going to be talking about album sales, iTunes, and what’s going on. Maybe we’ll get into a little bit of the relationships of who’s dating who. We’re going to be watching new videos, new artists, performances, so it’s going to be really cool.
When Hoda asked her who she was currently dating, Ashanti kept it short and cute and took that time to plug her upcoming studio album, Braveheart, instead.
This album is something very deep, It’s just being a woman and building a brand. I hope that this is inspiring to women in general. This album is amazing, so many different producers and it’s kind of deep. I’m going places that I haven’t gone on other albums.
