Ashanti has shared the video for her sultry track “235 (2:35 I Want You).”
In the JaQuel Knight-directed visual, Ashanti—draped in a trench coat—makes a late-night stop at her man’s house. As she makes her way upstairs, she sheds the coat before breaking into a seductive dance routing.
Ashanti’s yearning on the new single is clear from the opening lines: “It’s 2:35 in the morning and I’m thinking ‘’bout you / All the things that we should and maybe shouldn’t do / I don’t know if I’m wrong for saying this, but I want you / Don’t wanna make a move too soon / Don’t wanna ruin where this could go.”
Ashanti first previewed “235 (2:35 I Want You)” during her long-awaited Verzuz battle with Keyshia Cole last week. The track also follows her 2019 single, “Pretty Little Thing” featuring Afro B.
More recently, Ashanti linked up with Joyer Lucas for the rapper’s track “Falling Slowly.” She also featured alongside Megan Thee Stallion on DaBaby’s “Nasty,” a track off the rapper’s album Blame it on Baby.
