The Murder Inc. rapper and singer share undeniable chemistry on the breezy, Cheryl Lynn-inspired track, which they’ve been previewing during their live shows. Rule even pays homage to JAY-Z’s 2003 classic off The Black Album. “Can I get an encore? Do you want more?” he asks. “Your good love deserves an encore,” sings Shanti.
The long overdue collaborative project by Ja Rule and Ashanti is expected to be on the way, and this week fans got a teaser with the leaked song “Encore.” Back in June, Ja and Ashanti revealed that they were plotting a joint album, inspired by JAY-Z and Beyoncé’s Everything Is Love. “I think we should do one of these joint albums,” tweeted Ja.
