Ashanti (not to be confused with R&B singer, Ashanti Douglas) were a female R&B trio from Minneapolis, Minnesota that consisted of Letitia Calhoun and Davidra & Tammy Collins.

In 1994, they released their first single, “Something’s Wrong (Bump N’ Grind)” on Scotti Bros. Records.

The song managed to peak at #68 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 7 weeks.

The song was an answer to R. Kelly’s 1993 hit song, “Bump N’ Grind.” After that, it seemed as if Ashanti had faded into obscurity.
