It’s been 12 years since Ashanti and Ja Rule released their hit single, 2001′s “Always on Time.” The duo collaborated multiple times, releasing “Mesmerize” in 2002, and “Wonderful” with R. Kelly in 2004. The American music stars, Ja Rule and Ashanti , are billed to perform in Nigeria in a number of weeks.

Ashanti is currently working on her fifth studio album Braveheart, which has suffered numerous pushbacks, and Ja is fresh off of a stint in prison, after serving almost 2 years in jail for gun possession. The way things are looking so far, the new collaboration may actually make Ashanti’s new album.
