Years later, the pair collaborated once again on “Mesmerize” and Ja Rule's track record of working with female artists, besides Ashanti. "Mesmerize" is a song by American rapper Ja Rule. It was released in December as the second single from his fourth album The Last Temptation. No Love Found at Ja Rule and Ashanti's Valentine's Day Concert.
