Keyshia Cole’s fans are saying the next Verzuz showdown should be with her and Ashanti. Cole reacted to a fan-made setlist for a potential battle between the two by tagging Timbaland and Swizz Beatz.
“My fans sent me this @timbaland @therealswizzz @ashanti @verzuztv is this accurate,” she wrote.
An Instagram Live battle between Cole and Ashanti would likely be another friendly affair like Erykah Badu versus Jill Scott or DJ Premier versus RZA. The two singers have worked together on the 2012 song “Woman To Woman,” which appeared on Cole’s album of the same name.
Cole and Ashanti would have a fairly even playing field. Both women’s careers got started during the early 2000s and Cole and Ashanti each have three platinum albums in their discographies.
When it comes to songs, Ashanti’s got two No. 1 hits in her catalog: her debut single “Foolish” and Ja Rule’s “Always On Time.” Cole, on the other hand, topped out at No. 3 on the Hot 100.
