The Ashanti versus Keyshia Cole “Verzuz” battle has been postponed for a second time.
“Verzuz” cited last week’s right-wing attack on the U.S. Capitol and the surge in COVID cases as the reasons to the reschedule the event.
“This has been an emotional week. In addition, as COVID-19 numbers continue to increase, safety is a top priority for us,” the “Verzuz” team said in a statement. “As much as we enjoy having everyone together in the same room, to protect the artists and everyone who works with us in putting the shows together, we’ll be going back to separate locations for a bit.”
The two singers’ battle was originally set for December 12 but was postponed after Ashanti was infected with the coronavirus shortly before their battle.
The “Verzuz” team did not mention the new date other than saying they were excited for the “next few events, and look forward to getting back to the show in the coming weeks.”
