R&B artist Ashanti has social media buzzing about a recent performance where she was captured on video gyrating onstage.
The 37-year-old singer performed at the Warfield Theater Pomona in San Francisco on Sunday, Feb. 17, and had the crowd jumping. During one of her song performances, the singer seemingly invited three men up onstage and sat each of them down in a chair with their arms placed behind their backs.
Ashanti and her two backup dancers then began dancing in sync with one another to rapper Bluface‘s trending song “Thotiana.” The ladies started twerking in front of the men in their form-fitting sequined costumes. The crowd really went wild after Ashanti dropped it low with her hands veering in the air.

A Twitter user who apparently was at the singer’s concert captured the moment on camera and posted it on Twitter with the caption “BUST DOWN ASHANTIANA 🔥🔥!!”
Fans of Ashanti went gaga over her “fire” performance.
“Oooh okayyy Ashanti better werrkk b–ch 💄💃🏽!” another added. “Ok with the coordination.”
“Ashanti is so slept on its ridiculous!” another exclaimed. “I was there and she killed that f–ing performance 🗣!”
“You better work baby yessssssssss. Buss down Shantiana!”
The “Rain on Me” singer is currently on tour with former “Murder Inc.” label mate rapper Ja Rule, and they’re giving fans eventful shows with classic duets like “Mesmerize,” “What’s Luv,” “The Inc,” and a few others. Their “Ashanti & Ja Rule” tour kicked off on Valentine’s Day in Los Angeles and will end overseas on June 29. They will be traveling to a total of 11 cities including: San Diego, Pomona, San Francisco, and Indio, all in California; Seattle; Lexington, Kentucky; West Haven, Connecticut; Atlanta; Edmonton, Canada; and Lommel, Belgium.
Both Ashanti and Rule have been in the music industry since the early 2000s, and the pair were in talks about creating a new collaboration album, but there’s no word on when it will be released.
She told ET Online in June 2018, “We’re going to carve out the time and make it happen.”
