During the early hours of Monday (January 1), the celebrity couple joined forces on Instagram Live to celebrate the arrival of the new year.
Nelly seemed to be enjoying himself inside a vibrant club, presumably Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas, where he was headlining the Party Like a Royal New Year’s Eve event.
Meanwhile, Ashanti, clad in a comfortable robe, appeared to be in a more relaxed setting, likely in or around Springfield, VA, where she had participated in a New Year’s Eve show with Ja Rule. Despite the physical separation, she made a stylish gesture by donning sunglasses for the video call to match Nelly’s energetic vibe.
Amid the background noise and music resonating from Nelly’s venue, he complimented Ashanti, saying, “You look stunning, darling! Happy New Year, baby!” Graciously acknowledging his compliment, Ashanti expressed her gratitude, and from that point on, they shared the celebratory ambiance by immersing themselves in the music together on the live stream.
The virtual exchange showcased the couple’s affectionate connection, even when physically apart, and their shared joy as they rang in the New Year in their respective locations.
