During Ashanti's Verzuz against Keyshia Cole, she broke down how so helped write Jennifer Lopez's hits "I'm Real" and "Ain't It Funny."
Not a lot of people knew of her contributions to "I'm Real" because she isn't credited as a songwriter on it.
She addressed getting credit in an interview with Metro UK
“You should always care about credit for what you do regardless of what industry you’re in, it’s really important to give credit,” she stated. “Especially nowadays because things are so smoke and mirrors. It’s not that it’s frustrating… the word has been getting out there over the past couple of years and I’m grateful so a lot of people know and they were surprised but it’s more of a ‘yeah, grateful that you know.’
“It’s weird because obviously you get frustrated for not getting credit or not being properly labeled but then that turns into something you get admired for,” she continued.
Do you think "I'm Real" and "Ain't it Funny" would have been better if Ashanti sang them?
