Artists become profitable on the street. With the decline of document gross sales, and the controversial payout for streams taking up, the easiest way for an artist to eat is on the street. Ashanti was slated to carry out at Stony Brook University’s Back To Brook occasion later this month, however her present has been axed. According to Bossip, the present was canceled after promoting solely 24 tickets. The faculty launched an announcement in regards to the cancellation, writing:
“As a company, we do our greatest to host packages for college kids whereas offering range and inclusion. However, we have now struggled to execute sure points. With solely every week earlier than the live performance, solely 24 tickets have been offered to college students.”
To be honest, the occasion was initially speculated to be headlined by Teyana Taylor. Taylor pulled out of the live performance two weeks prior, and Stony Brook reached out to Ashanti to take over. The occasion was by no means correctly promoted as occasion organizers rushed to vary issues final minute, which led to the horrendous gross sales. Add that to the very fact most younger faculty children aged 18-22 have been barely out of diapers when Ashanti dropped her first album, and also you provide you with 24 ticket gross sales. Currently, Ashanti is engaged on a joint album with frequent collaborator, Ja Rule.
