It looks like music will be getting another album from a power duo, as Ashanti broke the news that she and Ja Rule are releasing about a joint album.
Ashanti and Ja Rule are more than just friends who collaborate musically togheter. The singer says they're "a real brother and sister" relationship that spanned decades. They hit the road togheter, growing up in the music industry and creating Grammy-nominated hits like "Always on Time" and "Mesmerize,".
"I believe he is working on music" Ashanti told People "We were touring for the past three years. I just saw him two days ago, we had a show togheter in Indio.
“We have some shows together. He’s definitely gonna be working on stuff and we’re gonna be doing some stuff together as well.”. “We’re still on the path to dropping a joint album,” Ashanti added. “I think that should be kind of cool, too.”
Ashanti is working on her 7th solo album as well but as for a release date, Ashanti says her seventh LP still needs more time in the oven.
"With me, it’s timing." she told Entertainment Weekly.
"There are a lot of things going on and it’s important to try and line everything up as much as you can, but it’s also important to not sit and wait on things. Sometimes I have a bad habit of waiting for things to line up perfectly because sometimes that doesn’t happen and then you miss out,”
She explains, seemingly referencing the six-year gap between 2008’s The Declaration and Braveheart. “But I’d love to have some new stuff out this summer!”
Ja and Ashanti worked on "Helpless" off The Hamilton Mixtape. However, we'll have to wait for some more news on this possible upcoming album.
