#VERZUZ: Ashanti & Keyshia Cole Battle Receives New Date

Published: Wednesday 13th Jan 2021 by Sam

After much ado, the VERZUZ battle between Ashanti and Keyshia Cole has a new date.

And organizers say it’s sticking come ‘rain, sleet, hail, or snow.’

Full story below…

Moments ago, it was announced that the hotly anticipated spar between the R&B belles will take place on Thursday January 21. 

As widely reported, the duel was initially supposed to take place on December 12. However, it was postponed due to Ashanti contracting coronavirus. A fresh date of January 9 was set, but also had to be tabled due to rapidly rising infection rates in the United States.

Now, though, it seems like it’s a case of all systems go!

It’ll serve as the first #VERZUZ battle of the year.

RAIN, SLEET, HAIL, SNOW LET’S GO 🙌🏽 Join us Thursday, January 21st as we kick off the first #VERZUZ of 2021 with @Ashanti and @KeyshiaCole. Thank you everyone for being patient with us. We can’t wait for this magical night with Keyshia and Ashanti!

Tune in Thursday, January 21st.

    I don’t understand this versus as both girl are in a different lane. Ashanti is closer to Beyoncé musically speaking, Keyshia is closer to Mary J. BLIGE/Fantasia and Cie.

    Give it up, Keyshia won

    You would think Keyshia will win but my friends and I did our own verzuz battle when they postponed it in December and I was repping Ashanti Songs and my bestie was repping Keyshia songs and the way I strategized the Ashanti songs I picked (Yes a strategy could change the outcome) in the end we all agreed Ashanti won for the night in our version even though We all picked Keyshia at first. So it depends on who goes first and if they strategize the songs based off of each other and what is played. It could be anyone’s game. Yes Keyshia has the voice of the two but from what we learned with our version of the battle Ashanti has more solidified bops. So it’s anyone’s game depending on how it’s played.
