About The Event

The holidays are coming! Grammy nominated R&B artist Ja Rule and R&B singer and actress Ashanti will headline Austin's Jingle Jam coming to H-E-B Center at Cedar Park, Sunday, December 11th at 7pm, with Juvenile, Lloyd, Trina, Ying Yang Twins plus special guest Gemtunes, hosted by DJ Fame and Sean Da Don! A portion of the proceeds benefits the Sammy Wallace Memorial Scholarship.


Fans can expect to see classic duets like “Mesmerize,” “What’s Luv,” “The Inc,” “Always Be On Time.”  Fans of early ‘00s hip-hop and R&B probably can’t talk about Ja Rule without mentioning Ashanti. Ja Rule was the first to come into the limelight with a notable guest verse on Jay-Z’s 1998 single “Can I Get A…” Soon after, the MC from Queens, New York, released his first major label solo album “Venni Vetti Vecci” in 1999, which produced the rapper’s first hit single “Holla Holla.”

Over the course of the next three albums (2000’s “Rule 3:36,” 2001’s “Pain is Love” and 2002’s “The Last Temptation”), Ja Rule would release several Top 10 Billboard singles that came from fruitful collaborations, whether it was “Between Me and You” featuring Christina Milian, “Put It On Me” featuring Vita and Lil’ Mo, or two collaborations with pop-star/actress Jennifer Lopez in the form of “I’m Real” and “Ain’t It Funny.”

However, many fans will probably agree that some of Ja Rule’s most memorable songs came courtesy of the collaborative chemistry he had with Ashanti. Another NYC-based artist, the two were labelmates under Irv Gotti’s Murder Inc. Records and her sweet hooks provided a unique contrast to his rough, growly delivery. In 2002, the two worked together on four Top 10 Billboard singles including “Always On Time” and later on other other hits like “Mesmerize” and “Wonderful,”

Ashanti’s sweetly melodic voice would also find its way onto other artists’ hit songs, like Fat Joe’s “What’s Luv?” in 2002 and would go on to release three platinum-selling solo albums (her Grammy-winning eponymous debut in 2001, “Chapter II” in 2003 and “Concrete Rose” in 2004) and hit singles like “Foolish,” “Rock Wit U (Aww Baby)” and “Rain On Me.”
