Ashanti hasn’t been shy about bikini pictures, so it’s not surprising to see her in such an attention-grabbing outfit at the New York event. She’s posted several photos of herself on her official Instagram showing off her bikini body.

Ashanti rose to fame as the young singer who joined Irv Gotti’s Murder Inc. back in 2002. She was known for appearing on the hit songs “What’s Luv?” by Fat Joe and “Always on Time” by Ja Rule over the years.

Her 2001 solo song “Foolish” reached No. 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts.

Ashanti also released six different studio albums between 2002 and 2014. There’s a “TBA” project slated for 2020 from the singer.

In addition to her music career, she’s held down a number of acting roles and appearances on shows. She played Dorothy in the musical “The Wiz” and has appeared as a guest judge on Ru Paul’s Drag Race series, amongst other roles.

Her recent appearance in that thong bikini ensemble should help bring attention to the Pretty Little Thing brand as well. Check out the official Instagram for more about the global online fashion brand.
