Keyshia Cole wants to get in a Verzuz battle with Ashanti in an upcoming edition of Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s Verzuz series.
The singer popped in the chat during the Wednesday’s Verzuz battle between DMX and Snoop Dogg to challenge Ashanti to an R&B showdown. “@Ashanti was goooood,” she wrote along with a series of heart and flame emojis.

At the moment, Ashanti has yet to respond to the Keyshia’s challenge, but fans are already craving 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….” one fan tweeted, while another added, “definitely need that ashanti vs. Keyshia.”
