Ask Ashanti what she wants for Christmas, and she just might say she wants to rock with you.
The singer has a holiday album titled Ashanti’s Christmas due November 18, a spokesperson said Friday. The album will include about four new songs as well as such classics as “Joy to the World,” “Silent Night” and “Winter Wonderland.”
Meanwhile, Ashanti will be traveling to India in the next couple of weeks to shoot a small part in an undisclosed Miramax film. Not much is known about the role, except that she’ll be singing in the flick.
Though it’s her first movie, it won’t be the first time fans will get to see Ashanti on the big screen. An 11-minute version of her “Rain on Me” video will be shown at 4,000 Regal theaters across the country in the next few weeks. Moviegoers will get to take the clip home with them via a promotion called Lid Rocks. A disc of the video is attached to the lids of soft drinks sold at the theaters’ concession stands.
