The last time Ashanti and Ja Rule collaborated was on Helpless from The Hamilton Mixtape in 2016. We’re in 2018 now and it seems like Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Everything Is Love has inspired Ashanti and Ja Rule.“We’re gonna carve out the time and make it happen,” Ashanti said during a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight on the 2018 BET Awards red carpet on Sunday. “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.’”
Ja Rule over the weekend also took to Instagram to praise Beyoncé and Jay Z’s new album by saying, “Iconnic… The Carters… New album is dope! Ashanti, I think we should do one of these joint albums haha.”
Although Ashanti and Ja Rule have never released a joint album with one another, the duo gave us magic in the early 2000’s with hit songs like, Mesmerize and Always On Time.
