Apparently, Mya isn’t the only R&B veteran who is open to doing a Verzuz battle. On Wednesday (July 22), during DMX and Snoop Dogg’s highly-viewed Verzuz battle Keyshia Cole invited Ashanti to go head to head with her in a Verzuz battle.

“Ashanti [what’s] good?” Keyshia Cole simply asked Ashanti in the comment section of DMX and Snoop Dogg’s battle. It’s currently unclear whether or not Ashanti actually responded to the “Heaven Sent” singer.

As we previously reported, Mya recently stated that she’s open to doing a Verzuz battle. During an interview with BBC Sounds, the “All About Me” singer said, “I’m always open. Especially now, shows and touring has been canceled until 2021.”

“I watched quite a few Verzuz battles and it doesn’t feel like a battle at all, more like a friendly artist camaraderie and respect. I think it’s genius. Very entertaining, people are very excited about culture coming together, especially now. So, I’m totally down,” Mya continued.

It’s currently uncertain what two artists are up next against each other in the highly lauded battle series, which now is streaming on Apple Music in addition to Instagram. Fans will just have to stay tuned.
