As the undisputed princess of Murder Inc., singer-songwriter and R&B icon Ashanti has been making moves since the early aughts. Cranking out banger after banger as the perfect lyric soprano compliment to longtime collaborator Ja Rule's gruff, deep-voiced delivery, the "Always on Time" singer has undoubtedly earned her spot on every "Best of '00's" playlist made years after her eponymous debut album hit the shelves back in 2002.

While there's no question that Ashanti's star power has faded since she first burst onto the scene, she's still an icon in the industry with an impressive six studio albums under her belt and a full-length collaboration with Ja Rule on the way. Still fully dedicated to her craft and keeping her figure tour-ready, Ashanti has shown the world time and again that she still knows how to play the game - and has the killer curves to prove it. 

Speaking to HypeBae, Ashanti dished on her mindset behind always looking and feeling her best. "Personally, I feel like you should always try to look for your best asset. If it’s your eyes, or if it’s your waist – whatever it is that makes you feel good about yourself, accentuate that," said the "Rock Wit U" hitmaker. "Just never feel like you have to change because of what someone else says or wants."

Despite the fact that her ticket sales aren't what they once were, (a fact that 50 Cent is all too happy to point out on social media) Ashanti still stays busy on the 'Gram hyping up her "best assets" for the viewing pleasure of her nearly 4 million followers.
