Following the release of her new single “The Woman You Love” featuring Busta Rhymes, Ashanti has announced the launch of her label Written Entertainment and release of a new album through eOne Music.

The former Murder Inc. songstress, who last released her fourth album The Declaration in 2008, has made her latest single, produced by Jerry Wonda, available on iTunes. In a press release, Ashanti said that her partnership with eOne was a natural fit.

“I’m so excited to have my own record label, Written Entertainment. With eOne as my distributor, I feel that their innovative and ambitious approach to the music industry, really gives my label a worldwide presence,” she said. “They have the top radio people in the business and are hungry to win! The more I learned the business the more I knew this is what I wanted. Ownership is so important. As a business woman this was a great move for me!”

Ashanti’s untitled fifth album is due in 2012.
