The piano hits and you’re instantly transported to the early 2000s.
“Foolish” was Ashanti’s lead single off her first self-titled album released in 2002.
This jam spent ten weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The song became Ashanti’s second number one and third top ten on both charts.
In 2009, it was named the 19th most successful song of the 2000s on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs of the Decade.
Interestingly enough, there is a remix, “Unfoolish,” that features Notorious BIG.
