Ashanti Gives Fans ‘Sunshine’ in Scanty Bikini: ‘I Got the Month of May’
Ashanti is blowing social media away with smoking-hot photos of herself enjoying the beach.
The “Good Good” singer appears to be enjoying her time on the beach while soaking up the sun. She’s currently visiting the Caribbean after headlining for the 50th Anniversary of St. Maarten Carnival with her music peers Ja Rule and Keyshia Cole on April 25. But a little work clearly doesn’t stop the singer from enjoying herself.
Ashanti took to Instagram on Sunday with an alluring photo of herself standing on the beach in a yellow string bikini and her gold Anna-Karin Karlsson sunglasses. The getup showed off her assets, including her toned abs and thighs. Her geotag located her at Karakter Beach Bar, where she apparently was relishing at. She added in her caption, “Sunshine .”
The photo received more than 212,000 likes and over 2,700 comments from fans, the majority of them complimenting her tantalizing appearance.
“Got me saying Baby ‘i got the month of May’ the gyal yuh hotter Dan the sun .”
“Come thru Sis With That Bomb ass NATURAL BODY!! snatching all my edges.”
“Beautiful sis and it’s all real too! So good to see a natural body. Love it.”
“You’re the one who shines here damn girl, you are just perfection! #RealCurves #BodyGoals .”
Others denounced the image.
“We get it you gotta nice body can we please get some music .”
“Put some clothes on and give up music !”
When it comes to the 38-year-old’s slim physique, it’s apparently well earned. She told People Magazine earlier this month that she eats clean and works out consistently. She does however allow herself to have two cheat days where she can eat anything she wants.
Ashanti said she typically follows a pescatarian diet and tries to stay away from other meats.
“I cut out a lot of meat,” she said. “I think again, self-health and self-awareness are so important. All of that stuff is so important to maintaining your body, knowing what’s in your food, the GMO’s and the chemicals, and I’m super aware of this stuff.”
She added, “I feel like it’s very necessary to just be aware of what you’re eating. … I have a trainer and we try to go five days a week when I’m home and then when I get to another place, he’s texting me a workout or he’ll FaceTime me and say, ‘Are you still in the bed?’ We try to keep it going.”
As far as music goes, the singer said she’s working on a new joint album with former “Murder Inc” label mate Ja Rule, which fans expect apparently sometime this year.
“We have some shows together. He’s definitely gonna be working on stuff and we’re gonna be doing some stuff together as well,” the singer noted. “We’re still on the path to dropping a joint album. I think that should be kind of cool, too.”
