Ashanti also stars as “Teanna,” a store consultant, in Lifetime’s new movie, Christmas in the City, which premiered on Saturday, December 7th on the Lifetime Network and will repeat several times on the network throughout the holiday season. Christmas in the City is a part of Lifetime’s holiday programming campaign, It’s a Wonderful Lifetime, and Ashanti’s version of “Let it Snow” is the lead single of the campaign. Additionally, the songs from her EP, A Wonderful Christmas With Ashanti, are featured throughout the movie.

Ashanti burst onto the music scene with her smash hit debut album, the self-titled “Ashanti,” which sold over 500,000 units in its first week and landed her the #1 spot on both the Billboard Top 200 and R&B album charts, and a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most albums sold by a debut female artist.
In addition, her first three chart entries landed in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time, making Billboard history. That year, her album “Ashanti” won the GRAMMY for Best Contemporary R&B Album, eight Billboard Awards, two American Music Awards and she was presented with the Soul Train Aretha Franklin Entertainer of the Year Award. Over the last decade, Ashanti has appeared in a number of films and television shows, including the 2013 season of “Army Wives” on Lifetime, recorded four more albums, penned a book of poetry, starred on Broadway and launched a self-titled fragrance.
