Ashanti Confirms Collaborative Album With Ja Rule Is In The Works


Despite Beyonce and Jay-Z's surprise collaborative album, Everything Is Love, recently debuting at number two on the Billboard 200, it now appears to have inspired another favourite duo, Ashanti and Ja Rule.

In a newly released interview that took place at the 2018 BET Awards, Murder Inc singer Ashanti revealed that a project with longtime collaborator Ja Rule could very well be in the works. “Listen, me and Rule, it’s so funny because we’ve been talking about that for so long, but I think now he’s like, ‘OK, now it’s time to do it,'” she revealed when speaking with Entertainment Tonight at the BET Awards on Sunday. “So we’re going to carve out the time and make it happen,” she added.

This came after Ja Rule took to Instagram to praise Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s new album and hinted at the possibility of such an album:  “Iconnic… The Carters… New album is dope! Ashanti, I think we should do one of these joint albums haha.”

Ashanti and Ja Rule last collaborated on "Helpless" from 2016's The Hamilton Mixtape. The two previously colloborated on the grammy-nominated jams “Always on Time,” “Mesmerize,” “Wonderful,” and “Down 4 U.”
