The inaugural VERZUZ battle was introduced in March 2020, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. VERZUZ was a relatively new way for artists and fans to connect virtually, at a time when the live music sector was at a standstill. Today, the competitive series doubles as a webcast and a live event.

Watching artists compete in real-time for multiple rounds is intensely entertaining! Thus far, there have been battles between musicians Teddy Riley and Babyface, singers Brandy and Monica, rappers Jeezy and Gucci Mane and many more.

As the platform continues to capture millions of viewers, inquiring minds may wonder who’s next? Believe it or not, there are several industry heavy-hitters who have yet to participate in a VERZUZ battle. Here are some contenders that we’d love to see in a forthcoming match up!
