(AllHipHop Rumors) Don't you just love backstories?! Ashanti has been doing her press runs to promote her single "Say Less" that features Ty Dolla $ign.
During her interview with The Breakfast Club, Ashanti revealed that her hit single "Foolish" was actually supposed to feature Jay-Z!
"Jay was supposed to be on "Foolish" it's crazy. Yeah. This is what happened. Obviously I wrote the verses. Irv made the call to Jay like "Yo I need you to come get on this record." So he played it for Jay. Jay loved the record. He was on the way to the studio. Then Irv said, "Nah we gon' do something different because that's the typical R&B move. You gonna carry the whole record on your own. ....He forced me to go in and write the bridge...... He called Jay and said Nah. Never mind," said Ashanti.
Mannn could you imagine if Jay was actually on "Foolish". I think if Jay was featured the song would've still been just as hot; the structure and the sound of the song would've changed obviously.
I wonder why they didn't have Hov do the remix.
Do you think Ashanti and Irv Gotti should've actually had Jay-Z on "Foolish"?
Well, fortunately, Ashanti didn't take an "L" with Irv cancelling the Hov feature, as it's one of her biggest songs to date.
