Ashanti Performs ‘Foolish’ With Live Band [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]
When an artist has a song that can still get a room full of people vibing to the beat and the lyrics resonate 12 years after its release, that’s talent. Ashanti‘s lovesick ballad ‘Foolish’ is a timeless song that does just that.
When those keys begin, it’s hard not to think back to where you were in 2002, when the record first dropped. The effort served as her debut single and skyrocketed the R&B songstress to the top of the Billboard charts, spending 10 weeks at number one. Plus it was certified platinum. Not bad for her first foray into the world of R&B.
Ashanti joins The Boombox for our Off the Record video series to perform the classic track with a band at MSR Studios in New York City. The live version of ‘Foolish’ with drums, a keyboard and guitar stays true to the essence of the original. “Know y’all remember this one! Let’s take it back,” she says before serving those all too familiar smooth vocals. This is one performance you’ll be singing along with.
