Ashanti's Christmas is the first Christmas album by American R&B/pop singer Ashanti, released in 2003 (see 2003 in music). The album debuted and peaked at #160 on the Billboard 200 and #43 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The album contained almost an equal amount of new songs, written by Ashanti herself, and covers of Christmas classics. As for singles, Ashanti released a Christmas Medley which featured the songs "Christmas Time Again", "The Christmas Song", and "Hey Santa". A video was shot for the medley and it received moderate rotation on BET and MTV. A reworked version of the original song "Time of Year" would later appear on Ashanti's second Christmas album, A Wonderful Christmas with Ashanti.
