The highly desired Keyshia Cole and Ashanti battle has finally been confirmed, and Black Twitter couldn’t be more excited. As soon as the announcement was made, social media users tweeted about the battle and their hopes for the forthcoming night.
People siding with Ashanti mentioned that she not only has music from her solo career, but is responsible for writing some very popular hits as well. “Ashanti wins automatically. Do ya’ll know how much music Ashanti is responsible for??? She won off her pen alone,” Twitter user @nicolesrevenge wrote.
Cole fans, however, believe that the “Love” singer shouldn’t be slept on as her discography is enough to win the entire battle.
“Folks are going for Ashanti, but Keyshia ain’t no one-hit wonder,” tweeted @AsiaChloeBrown. “She could do half the Verzuz without leaving her first album.”
Some Verzuz fans are just extremely excited to know that Swizz Beatz and Timbaland were able to put together yet another epic battle that many doubted would ever come to fruition. “Keyshia and Ashanti?? If y’all want us to cry JUST SAY THAT! I could barely hold myself together for Monica and Brandy,” user @crystalbaee1 wrote.
As the fourth-women only battle since the start of the Verzuz series, the night ultimately will be a time for women to shine and get in their bags. As @DestinySharnea tweeted, “Ashanti vs Keyshia? Ladies it’s our time. Get the voices ready.”
Cardi B even chimed in on the conversation with a cautionary message for all men. “Warning to all you mans out there (including mine),” she wrote. “Be nice the day of the Ashanti vs Keyshia Verzuz battle. It’s going to be a lot of singing with this face on you.”
