In the early 2000s Ja Rule nabbed three chart-topping hits with Ashanti - ushering in the new millennium on top of the hip-hop industry.
It's been over a decade since the two recorded their infectious duet "Always On Time" but the two were recently spotted together in the studio. Ashanti released a filtered photo of her and Ja this week via her Instagram account with a caption that read:
"Uhh ohhhhh me & my bro @ruleyorkcity in the lizzaaaabbbbb!!!!!!! We haven't seen each other in 4ever!!! & it feels great!!!"
In March prior to Ja's release, Ashanti told the Huffington Post that she had spoken to the incarcerated rapper about new material.
"Me and Ja were talking and you know, I don't say 'no,'" Ashanti said in an interview with HuffPost Live. "We may do something. I think a lot of fans want to see that," she added. "There's no denying that we had a run, baby. It was magic."
Ashanti is still prepping her fifth solo album Braveheart - her first offering since parting ways with Murder Inc. and establishing her own Written Entertainment record label. Busta Rhymes, French Montana and Meek Mill are confirmed guests on the album.
