Verzuz has created some amazing hit for hit battles between some of the greatest artists/producers to ever do it since April 2020. This helped music fans a lot when the COVID-19 pandemic first started.
Some of the greatest matchups that we’ve seen to date have been Teddy Riley-Babyface, Lil Jon-T-Pain, Ludacris-Nelly, Brandy-Monica, and Jeezy-Gucci. Ashanti-Keyshia Cole was solid last week as well and now, the question is which two stars will take the grand stage next in front of the world.
