R'n'B beauty Ashanti is set to have an image overhaul to win over mainstream fans.

The UNFOOLISH singer, who regularly collaborates with her Murder Inc labelmate Ja Rule, is planning to make some changes when she shoots her new video next week (ends18APR03), and she's recruited rocker director Paul Hunter for the job.

Hunter says, "We're going to do a beautiful beach video, focusing on her beauty and showing off a lot of fashion.

"They're looking for me to sort of broaden her audience.

"This is for the first single from the next album, which isn't done yet."

The video is set to be released in May (03).
