Ashanti reveals a producer wanted her to take a shower with him as a form of payment for tracks or $40k per song

Ashanti reveals a producer wanted her to take a shower with him as a form of payment for tracks or $40k per song.

Ashanti made a startling claim about a producer attempting to ransom her songs in exchange for sex during an appearance on the radio show, The Breakfast Club.

While speaking to hosts Charlamagne tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee, the 42-year-old singer revealed that she was in a 'crazy situation with one producer,' who she said worked with her on two records.

'I thought he was joking,' she explained, before he said he made it clear he was 'dead serious' or would expect her to pay him '$40,000 per track.

She continued: 'Again, I thought he was joking because, you know, we had been working with each other, for like, I don't know, a couple of weeks.'

Once she learned he was serious, the star said she had to 'make some phone calls' to get the situation under control.

Ashanti said she plans to elaborate more on the scary experience in her upcoming documentary, which she is currently working on.

Back in 2018, at the height of the #MeToo, she opened up a little about the sexual harassment, but never said the producer's name. She said once she turned down the producer, who had a 'little crush' on her, 'all of a sudden the track became $45K.' 

After her family stepped in, she said his 'apology came in' the form of 'three records for free.' 

'And I got two of them mixed and mastered for free,' the Grammy winner added. She has released six albums, with her self-titled debut album selling an impressive 503,000 copies in its first week of release.

She even became a Guinness World Record holder for Fastest Selling Debut Artist (for a female) for her 2002 record.The 42-year-old "Rock Wit U" hitmaker shed light on a situation where she said a producer demanded that she shower with him in exchange for two songs that they worked on. When she refused, he reportedly demanded $40,000 per each song.

Although she first spoke about it back in 2018, she said more about the encounter during a recent interview.


“We did two records together, he was like, ‘Okay, I’m not gonna charge you, you know you my homie,’” she said during an interview on the Breakfast Club.

“When it came time to put it on the album, he was like, ‘well, let’s take a shower together,’" Ashanti added. "I thought he was joking, and then he was like, ‘Nah, I’m dead serious. Let’s go out, or let’s take a shower together, and I’ll give you the records. If not, I need 40 racks per record.'"
