This is billboard.com's review of Ashanti's latest single:

Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion can't score a top 40 hit to save their livesall three have recently stiffed with signature, hitworthy singlesand yet Ashanti keeps cooking with one lame, loop-filled release after another? Alas. The second single from Ashanti's fast-selling "Chapter II" is a hook-heavy track that the village idiot could make into a hit, thanks solely to the memorable instrumental riff lifted from Burt Bacharach and Hal David's classic "The Look of Love." Beyond that, producers Irv Gotti and Chink Santana back "Rain on Me" with a hopelessly repetitive melody, showcasing a typically soulless, nearly monotone vocal from Ashanti. Certainly, studio wizardry will keep the Def Jam doll on topas the quality of the radio airwaves continues to spiral ever downward. Ashanti is as prepackaged as they come. Thank God she looks swell in a bikini.

Murder Inc is failing because all they use is one, will two artists and they don't focus on other artists they have. If they released that Vita album Murder Inc would be a lot better, but that is stuff we all know.

Okay, I have heard you guys said "Break Up 2 Make Up" , "I Found Lovin" & "The Story of 2" would be good hits, will, I think

"I Found Lovin"
"Sweet Baby"

would be good hits, I think these would do really good.

I agree, Rain on Me isn't that bad, but I don't listen to the radio at all but my little sister, that is all she listens to and so far she has only heard "Rain on Me" twice and she will hear "Rock Wit U" like 3 times a day still.
