Nelly and Ashanti have a new song on the way, according to legendary music producer Jermaine Dupri.

On Tuesday, Dupri shared a video to Instagram of him and the couple – who rekindled their romance earlier this year – in the studio together.

Though in the video the three were debating the rules of the jumprope game “Double Dutch," Dupri confirmed in the caption that a new song from the pair featuring Juicy J is on the horizon.

“Although we talking bout double Dutch, this a NEW RECORD ALERT !!” he wrote. “Got @nelly @ashanti & @juicyj on the way !!”

Juicy J commented on the post with a series of trophy emojis.

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

The two stars were spotted together in public on numerous occasions earlier this year before they reunited on stage at the Illionis State Fair in August.

In September, Nelly confirmed to Philo TV that he and Ashanti were dating again.

“Yeah, we cool again. We cool again. I think it surprised both of us, though,” he said. “It wasn’t anything that was, like, I don’t think planned. I think we both was pretty much doing what we do. But sometimes, being separate, you understand one another more.”
