“Honestly, people need to just say less,” preaches Ashanti in her new song “Say Less,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign. The track's music video — premiering on Billboard today (April 6) — features theatrical elements that depict a case in which the news heavily misconstrued some  the R&B artist's actions. To the reporters, Ashanti demands: “bitch, say less.”

Directed by Noyz and LT Hutton, the video presents viewers with Ashanti's glitzy, glamorous lifestyle despite the constant backlash she faces from her detractors. Her ill intentions are proven false, hinting at the negativity that celebrity gossip elicits.

“Say Less” is the first single from Ashanti's forthcoming sixth studio album. Soon, she'll be hitting the road with Ja Rule for their co-headlining The Hitters Tour.
