Ashanti has announced that she will be the executive producer and co-host of a new daily music show called “Fuse News,” launching this fall.

In an appearance on the the “Today” show, the “What’s Luv” singer discussed her new program, which she described as a replacement for MTV’s popular “Total Request Live.”

“It’s absolutely amazing,” Ashanti explained. “We used to have ‘TRL’ back in the day, on MTV, and they kinda went towards reality TV … It’s music news… Maybe we’ll get a little bit into the relationships of who’s dating who, maybe, but it’s more so about just musical content.”

The 30-minute show will air on weekdays this fall, offering a daily breakdown of the latest in the music industry. Ashanti, who also performed the show’s theme song, will share hosting duties with co-anchors Elaine Moran and Alexa Chung in N.Y., and Jack Osbourne in L.A.
