Ashanti’s new track, “2:35 (I Want You),” has launched the latest viral dance trend on social media.

On Tuesday, the R&B princess asked her 6.1 million Instagram followers to upload their best rendition of themselves showing off some sexy dance movies or doing another activity to the song.

There are many versions of the #iwantyouchallenge. In some videos, fans can be seen doing a sexy dance in front of the camera, while others do a choreographed dance routine to the song.

Ashanti participated with a makeup challenge, where she shared a few of her beauty products before she revealed a stunning look with red lipstick, while wearing a black lace bralette and leather jacket.

Ashanti said she plans to re-post fans’ TikTok submissions to Instagram, after which a few participants will be selected to attend her pre-Valentine’s Day Zoom party this Friday.

“I Want You” was released in January after the now-legendary Verzuz match-up between Ashanti and Keyshia Cole. Ashanti’s last album, Braveheart, was released in 2014 under her Written Entertainment label.
