Did Ashanti hint that a Murder Inc. reunion could happen in the near future?
During a recent interview with The Huffington Post to promote the singer’s latest album, Braveheart, Ashanti suggested that a reunion isn’t totally out of the question, but don’t hold your breath.
“Me and Ja [Rule] was in the studio not too long ago. And I was playing him some records … The thing about me and Ja is, our chemistry is undeniable,” she said.
“It doesn’t take a lot for us to get into the studio and come out with something crazy. So at this point we both are kind of like doing our own thing because we know we’re superior in what we can do together. But I think later on we can see a little collabo, reunion.”
During the interview, the 33-year-old also opened up about her relationship with Nelly and how her public break-up influenced this album. “I definitely feel like my situation has played a huge role in the records and how I felt. As far as dropping a ‘hot 16’ [song verse], I might have recorded them but they didn’t make the album,” she explained.
“There is a record that I have called “Scars” that is weird, because [it’s] talking about being scarred in a relationship, but it’s not a ballad. It’s a head nod record. So I think that was a great twist for me.”
Braveheart, the singer’s first album in six years, is available now.
