Glen Cove native Ashanti is coming home. The R&B pop diva will headline the Long Island Music Festival at the Long Island Community Hospital Amphitheater at Bald Hill in Farmingville on Sept. 11. Rappers Ja Rule and Fabolous will also be on the bill.
It’s been awhile since Ashanti released an album, however the Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum singer recently dropped a new single, "235 (2:35 I Want You)." Her last releases were in 2019 with the songs "Pretty Little Thing" featuring Afro B, and her collaboration with Machel Montano called "The Road."
Ja Rule and Ashanti have a long history of partnership. The duo collaborated on songs like "Down 4 U," "Rain on Me," "Wonderful" and "Always on Time." Presently, Ja Rule is riding high on his new collaboration with singer RIKKI, "Heartbreaker." Fabolous, meanwhile, recorded with JAHKOY on the singer's latest release, "Exes & Summer Flings."
Tickets for the show go on sale Saturday at noon via ticketmaster.com. The event is rain or shine.
