  • Summary: The Irv Gotti-created superstar returns with a quick follow-up to her hit 2002 self-titled debut.

    Adheres to the simple formula that worked so successfully on her debut, combining fluid, mid-tempo grooves with infectious vocal hooks. [Sep 2003, p.110]
  2. It's awfully hard to tell if this is actually Ashanti's new album or if it's just one big infomercial for her label, Murder Inc.
  3. Chapter II is too mired in tired R&B conventions to achieve true magnificence. [11 Jul 2003, p.77]
  4. Catchy pop music based on some great old soul tunes.
  5. The sole outright attraction of her pathologically modest follow-up is "Then Ya Gone."
  6. Wears thin long before its halfway mark.
  7. There are so many idiotically composed adverts between tracks, you wonder if you haven't tuned into a local radio station by accident. [Sep 2003, p.99]
