After the previous Verzuz dates were postponed due to COVID-19, the Verzuz battle series has announced a new date for the Ashanti and Keyshia Cole face-off.
The new confirmed date is Thursday, Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. ET
This was revealed on the Verzuz Instagram account. In a post that showed a flyer for the event, its caption read: “RAIN, SLEET, HAIL, SNOW LET’S GO. Join us Thursday, January 21st as we kick off the first #VERZUZ of 2021 with @Ashanti and @KeyshiaCole. Thank you everyone for being patient with us. We can’t wait for this magical night with Keyshia and Ashanti!”

An in-person battle was originally set for Dec. 12 but was delayed after Ashanti tested positive for COVID-19. Then the Jan. 9 makeup date was pushed back as well, with Verzuz announcing that the battles would go back to separate locations — just as they had when the series initially took off at the start of lockdown — “as COVID-19 numbers continue to increase.”
