As Ashanti's latest album, 'BraveHeart, approaches its release date, her latest single featuring Beenie Man debuts. Can you hear summer approaching?

While spring is around the corner, Ashanti and Beenie Man skip the season to bring us their latest collaboration, 'First Real Love,' which is a perfect warm weather banger. The track serves as the closer on her upcoming album, 'Braveheart,' due March 4.

'First Real Love' is a sturdy dancehall party tune, sure to prime up the dance floor in the coming months. The song itself is sunnier than current releases 'Never Should Have' and 'I Got This,' with Ashanti singing, "Baby, you are all ever wanted you are everything I need / Never knew that I could have a love like this."

Already proving he can start the party, Beenie jumps in with straight-to-the-point lyrics and a signature delivery, "I'ma be the the first to break her cherry."

What do you think of the track? Has Ashanti given us the first summer hit of the year? Talk to us in the comments below.
