The singer had gotten the test ahead of a 'Verzuz' shoot

Ashanti tested positive for COVID-19, the singer announced on Sunday, December 13.

She had taken the test prior to the airing of her Verzuz episode with Keyshia Cole, which has been postponed.

“I can’t believe I’m saying this but I tested positive for COVID-19. I’m ok and not in any pain,” said Ashanti in an Instagram post, noting that the Verzuz team was figuring out a way to shoot the episode from home.

They eventually decided to postpone the episode, after concluding that the “technical aspect” for the show would “not be perfect.” The episode featuring Ashanti and Keyshia Cole will instead happen on January 9, 2021, according to Variety.

Verzuz is a web series that features two hiphop or R&B singers in a stream, during which they perform their respective songs. It was created by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. –
