Verzuz confirmed the news via Instagram. The matchup will take place Saturday, December, 5PM PT / 8PM ET on Instagram or in HD on Apple Music.
Cole put her name into the ring months ago when DMX and Snoop Dogg faced off in their high-profile Verzuz match up. In the comments under the show, she asked Ashanti “was good.”
Soon after, Cole reposted a fan who tagged Ashanti and asked her to do the Verzuz with Cole.
During a discussion with Fat Joe on Instagram Live from May, Ashanti confirmed that she would be into the Verzuz if fans were open to it.
Verzuz is more significant than ever thanks to the last matchup of Jeezy and Gucci Mane, who, seemingly, put a near-two-decade feud to rest at the end of the show. Swizz Beatz revealed that the show broke an “all-time livestream viewership record,” with 9.1 million people turning in to watch the match.
