‘Takin Over the ’Gram’: Ashanti Continues Stepping on Necks with Recent Majestic Photo

Grammy Award winning singer Ashanti is on a roll with showing off her most stunning swimwear pictures while in the Caribbean.

The 38-year-old R&B artist recently performed in Barbados with soca boss Machel Montano for Soca Universe to promote their up-tempo track “The Road.” However, in her downtime, it seems Ashanti racked up on a slew of swimwear photos that she’s been showcasing all over social media.

Sunday evening, the “Rain On Me” singer took to her Instagram feed and shared a photo of herself posing in a sexy one-piece suit from her PrettyLittleThing swimsuit collaboration that launched in July. The peacock-print bathing suit accentuated her curvy assets as she posed statuesque atop a pool ladder with one leg up, the other pointed downward and her body tilted backwards.

The background and view of Ashanti’s photo was absolutely breathtaking, capturing the ocean and island scenery. Her photo caption read: “Sometimes it just sinks in..”

Her post drummed up over 99,000 likes from several of her four million followers.

“Damn she been rockin and rolling with the pictures 🔥💪🏾 sis is taking over the gram 😂.”

“Just queenin and living her best life 👏 Ashanti can do no wrong ❤️😍!”

“Brah she ain’t stopped postin since she hit Barbados she shuttin the gram down with her fine a– 😍💦”

Even the “What’s Luv” singer’s close friend Fat Joe commented on her post and wrote, “Stop showing off lol 👑.” However, Ashanti responded, encouraging Joe to join her in the festivities.

“🤣 bro y’all have to come down here with sis & Rich. We would have a blast!”

Ashanti’s sexy Caribbean post follows shortly after her new music video release with Montano for their “The Road” collaboration.

The project was shot during the 2019 Carnival events for folks to get a glimpse of the “colors, the cultural expression, the celebrations, and the diverse people involved in these activities.”

Montano is a native Trinidadian, and Ashanti fully embraced his culture and said they had a blast shooting the video together.

“Machel and I had really good energy,” the “Mesmerize” singer told Billboard during an interview published July 29.

“It was my first soca record, and I wanted to make sure I was pronouncing everything correctly, not like I am trying too hard or like a Yankee,” she continued. “My space in music where I live is mid-tempo, songs that tell stories, and soca is sped up 10 times compared to my records, so this was trying something out of the box, and it was a really cool feeling.”
