Ashanti & Ja Rule: Singer Talks About Reuniting With Her Former Collaborator

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.

With Ja Rule set to be released from jail in July, is it time for a Ja Rule and Ashanti reunion?

"Me and Ja were talking and you know, I don't say 'no,'" Ashanti said in an interview with HuffPost Live on Tuesday (shown above). "We may do something."

"I think a lot of fans want to see that," Ashanti said of reuniting with Ja Rule. "There's no denying that we had a run, baby. It was magic."

Ashanti also hinted about a collaboration she booked for her upcoming album. "I had a really good phone call with one of the hottest rappers out right now and he's gonna hop on the record," she told HuffPost Live. "I'm excited about that."

Ashanti is set to release her next album, "Braveheart," this spring.
