You're probably scratching your head right now and thinking, didn't Ashanti die in a Bahamian airplane crash? No. That was Aaliyah, the other "A-something" from the '90s.

Ashanti actually resurfaced last year after a three-year hiatus with "Never Too Far Away," the title track off 2011's psychological thriller Dream House. Today, the former Murder Inc soprano is gearing up for the release of Braveheart, the singer's first album in four years.

Keep reading for an extremely detailed breakdown of that record's "The Woman You Love" music video featuring Busta Rhymes.

0:00-0:09

Welcome to the future, y'all. Vomit bags not included.

0:10-0:26

Illuminati shit. What's with the levitating, Ashanti?

0:27-0:29

Something totally fucked it about to happen. Ahsanti looks pissed.

0:29-0:49

Whoa! Ashanti just triggered her memory bank and it's quite literally on fire. We're guessing homeboy in the video may have cheated on Ashanti.

0:49-0:51

Few women pull can pull the non-sexy underwear look off as good as Ms. Ashanti. Swag.

0:51-0:55

And we're back to the future.

0:55-1:02

You're going to want to get that tattoo covered up. May we suggest replacing his name with Crossfade?

1:03-1:08

A rogue prop from Star Trek just made its way into this video. We hear Busta in the background.

1:09-1:13

This video is brought to you in part by Remy Martin.

1:14-1:42

Woha, woha, woha, stop the clock. Did Ashanti just find pictures of homeboy with another female? Fuck that noise, she's out.

1:42-1:47

The aforementioned Star Trek prop is back.

1:47-1:49

Ashanti uses her hands a lot when she sings, anyone else notice that?

1:49-1:59

Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Busta Rhymes the constellation?

2:00-2:03

Ashanti's 'bout to open a can of whoop ass on.

2:03-2:14

This video is also brought to you in part by YMCMB.

2:14-2:19

It's like a sign out of a Tyler Perry movie. Ashanti's man is with another women and she's flipping the fuck out.

2:19-2:35

Best use of a pregnancy test in a music video in recent memory.

2:25-2:45

Ashanti continues trying to be the woman her man loves, but she's failing.

2:45-3:08

And the creepy tattoo alert is in full swing.

3:09-3:27

Are you kidding us, Ashanti? How can you take him back after he knocked up some other chick?

Both video and song are a scam.
