Ashanti Recruits R. Kelly for R&B Banger "That's What We Do"

FUSE TV - Ashanti Recruits R. Kelly for R&B Banger "That's What We Do"

For the second single off of her upcoming album, Braveheart, Ashanti called R&B master R. Kelly to lay it down on her new jam, "That's What We Do." The Lil Ronnie-produced track (T.I., Britney Spears, Usher) describes a couple working through some seriously toxic behavior—looking through cell phones, hiding keys, etc.—only to inevitably chalk it up to loving each other too much. Because "that's what they do," duh.

Not only is Ashanti pumped about the record—"This is a banger with the legendary R&B pioneer Kellz!" she told Fuse—but so are we: Ashanti's now part of the family! The singer and actress is about to add "anchor" to her resume as she takes a lead role in our upcoming nightly show Fuse News, which she is an executive producer of, along with Zev Shalev.

Check out Ashanti and R. Kelly's "That's What We Do" below.
