Exclusive! Ashanti Confirms Ja Rule Collaboration



We all remember how Ashanti came into the game!  The talented music artist from Long Island, NY signed onto Murder Inc. (The Inc. Records) working alongside artists like Ja Rule.  Her first album quickly went multi-platinum and she became the next hottest star producing hits that rocked the radio-waves. Ashanti is still making music and now with her old-time pal Ja Rule!

Since Ja Rule’s recent release from an upstate, NY federal prison he’s been in talks to work on new material and Ashanti provided us with some of the deets!  The singer graced us with her presence at the 7th Annual Pre-Dinner celebrating the 2013 BET Awards last Saturday in a sexy Michael Costello gown, and of course, she informed us of her current work status with Ja Rule…

We were writing back and forth while he was in.  You know I’m just really happy that he is home and we spoke and he is excited about his music.  And of course everyone is asking if we are gonna collab, so most likely we are gonna have something hot comin’.


So there you have it PopStop Nation!  Ashanti and Ja Rule will be creating some new tracks for us all!  We couldn’t be more excited to listen to new music from the powerhouse duo, but Ashanti does have some other collabs that are just as exciting.  Brace yourselves…she mentioned that she has tracks with the following mega stars…

R. Kelly

Busta Rhymes


When we asked her to tell us about her upcoming album she said, “I’m very excited about the album.  This is the first project off my record label Written Entertainment. It’s been a lot of pressure.  I’ve recorded like 60/65 records, you know, to try and come up with that hot 12 or 14 or what have you.  I’m really, really excited for people to hear it.  I tried a couple of things a little bit different but kept the same formula.”

We are anxiously anticipating the drop of your next album Ashanti!  Ok PopStoppers, What kind of sound do you think she might be bringing to the table next?  Will it be a make it POP or make it STOP?  Let us know!  @POPSTOPTV
