It’s no secret that rapper Nelly and r&b singer Ashanti had a hot and heavy romance that led to a breakup just last year. But what fans have been dying to know is if Ashanti’s first single from her new album, Braveheart was about she and Nelly’s split.
During a recent sit-down interview with New York’s Breakfast Club, Nelly addressed the rumors, revealing that the ballad, titled “Never Should Have” is not about the former couple’s breakup.
“That song was done a year before. I have the original version of that. I picked that song,” the St. Louis rapper told the hosts. “Can’t be (about me). That song was done a year before it came out,” he added.
Nelly also made reference to his split with the singer, saying, “Relationships are tough. As a man, you guilty ’til you prove your innocence in them situations, you know what I’m sayin? It’s just like ‘yo, what [did] you do.”
Nelly and Ashanti reportedly broke up because Nelly wouldn’t put a ring on it.
