Jermaine Dupri has confirmed the name of his new song with Nelly and Ashanti.

On Wednesday, the legendary producer took to Instagram to share the cover art for the single, which confirmed its name as "This Lil Game We Play."

"FRIDAY!! Jermaine Dupri feat @nelly @ashanti and @juicyj," Dupri captioned the post. "SUPER BOWL weekend ‼️"

The song's title is borrowed from the 1995 track of the same name by Subway and 702 – which Dupri sampled for the collaboration.

In a snippet Dupri shared of the song last month, Ashanti can be heard singing: “Boy, I really want to stay / So we can play this little game we play."

The song will feature on Dupri's upcoming EP, which is set to be released later this year.

Nelly and Ashanti, who recently rekindled their romance having previously dated between 2003 and 2013, haven’t released a track together since 2008's “Body On Me" with Akon.

Last year, the two stars were spotted together in public on numerous occasions before Nelly confirmed in September that they were dating again.

“Yeah, we cool again. We cool again. I think it surprised both of us, though,” the "Hot in Herre" rapper told Philo TV.

“It wasn’t anything that was, like, I don’t think planned," he added. "I think we both was pretty much doing what we do. But sometimes, being separate, you understand one another more.”
