Still on the comeback trail, Ashanti recruits Maybach Music mercenaries Meek and French for the Irv Gotti-produced track “No One Greater.” Unfortunately, French damn near derails the song out the gate with a miserable set of bars, Irv’s beat languishes and the only redeemable portion of “No One…” would be Meek’s quick piece since he can find a million ways to rap about playing chicks*. But, that’s the problem: we’ve heard it all before.
For Ashanti, she can still blow, yet something about the songwriting here falls flat and doesn’t match the Grammy-winner’s pipes. Maybe all of the testosterone added to the mix takes away the sense of urgency. Strip away the guys, let Ashanti fly solo and the track may work better.
Ashanti Feat. French Montana & Meek Mill – “No One Greater” (Prod. By Irv Gotti)
* – I really kept waiting on him to yell something about “it’s an Audemar!” Switch your delivery and tone up some, Meek.
