Ashanti and Keyshia Cole are giving their fans a little something to hold them over until their legendary Verzuz battle goes down on Saturday (Dec. 12).
Both ladies took to Instagram to reveal some new merch pieces that were designed specifically for their Instagram matchup. “Oh you KNOW we had to come wit the merch!” wrote the “I Should Have Cheated” songstress. “Libra-inspired vibes and starter pack-inspired vibes from us. Link in bio.”
Ashanti revealed that the merch was a collaboration effort between her little sister, Kenashia Douglas, and NTWRK. “Y’all ready???” she captioned her post. “Who’s coming to the celebration dressed??? Merch designed by @liltuneshi & @ntwrk. Link in bio!!! @verzuztv.”
The collection consists of T-shirts, hoodies and long sleeve shirts. Some of the items feature an image of both women’s faces inside of a letter “V” — which stands for Verzuz. Others feature an image of a libra scale, as both women celebrate their birthdays in the earlier part of October. The prices range from $30 to $60.
We’re just days away from the Instagram Live showdown and everyone is beyond excited to hear all their favorites tracks from both ladies. After the battle was announced on Dec. 4, Cardi B took to Twitter to send out a cautionary message to 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.”
Fans are torn between who they think will take home the W. Twitter user @kbyrd2_ tweeted, “As far as Keyshia vs Ashanti, for ME, if we’re talking albums & overall catalogues, it’s Keyshia. The average listener will probably go up for Ashanti more bc her hits were huge. But it’s Keyshia for me!”
“Once Ashanti go into that Murder Inc bag, we gone see if Keyshia Cole can hang. I fw KC though,” tweeted @BeauxTieSwag.
