Keyshia Cole wants in.
The singer has set her sights on battling Ashanti in an upcoming edition of Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s Verzuz series.
During Wednesday’s Verzuz battle between DMX and Snoop Dogg, Keyshia popped in the chat to challenge Ashanti to an R&B showdown. “@Ashanti was goooood,” she wrote along with a series of heart and flame emojis.
Ashanti has yet to respond to Keyshia’s challenge, but fans are here for the potential matchup between the R&B singers, who dominated the charts in the early 2000s. “No 🧢, an Ashanti & Keyshia Cole Verzuz would SLAP! Nostalgic as well….” tweeted one fan, while another added, “definitely need that ashanti vs. keyshia.”

Keyshia Cole would eat Ashanti with ease. Y’all crazy if you think otherwise.

Ashanti’s catalog runs circles around Keyshia’s…and thats before she even taps into what she’s done for JLo. That battle never needs to happens
