Where You've Seen Her: This gorgeous songstress has been busting out hit tunes since 2002, when she dropped her self-titled debut album. With singles like "Foolish" and "Baby," Ashanti achieved instant stardom and eventually transitioned into the film world, snagging roles in John Tucker Must Die, Coach Carter, and Resident Evil: Extinction. Now the New Yorker is returning to her musical roots with a new album, BraveHeart, due out February 18. Check out the lead single, "I Got It" (featuring Rick Ross), and prepare for a radio takeover.
