Almost ten years after they ended their relationship, Ashanti and Nelly are still commanding attention. The pair began dating back in 2003 and were together for about a decade before calling it quits. After taking the industry by storm as the "it" couple of Hip Hop and R&B, the hitmakers parted ways and continued to have successful careers independent of one another.

Recently, the former couple reunited on stage, furthering gossip about a rekindled romance. While it doesn't look like that is the case, Ashanti is open to collaborating with Nelly once again.

In a new interview with The New Norm with Selena Hill, Ashanti spoke about linking up musically with her ex.

"The majority of the questions I've been getting lately are, 'Oh, are y'all getting back together?'" said the singer. "But releasing music together? The one thing that I can say is that we're both very business savvy. So, if something is presenting itself as an opportunity to get money, we're probably both gonna be with it."

"I don't know if we're gonna go to the studio or anything together," Ashanti added. "But what I will say is, again, we're both very business savvy. If an opportunity presents itself to make a record and get to the bag, we're probably gonna be all in."
