Due to COVID-19 we are not in these streets the way many of used to be so we have found pleasure in DJ's like D-Nice, Questlove, 9th Wonder, Jazzy Jeff, DJ Cassidy, and a host of others saving our lives via virtual music sets. While the DJ's have been killing it, I think most of us would agree that Swizz Beatz and Timbaland's Verzuz celebrations have been legendary. The numbers don't lie; in my Rock voice, “The millions and the millions” of fans have tuned in for each celebration of music history as we celebrate the culture.
Whether it was our favorite aunties Gladys vs. Patti or our two favorite dogs, DMX vs. Snoop Dogg, we have enjoyed them all. Monica and Brandy reached an astronomical amount of viewers for the their legendary battle. Teddy Riley vs. Babyface was one for the ages for many reasons, even outside of the music. No matter who has shown up, it was been must see IG and most recently Apple TV for those who prefer that platform. We can always count on our favorite celebrities and icons to tune-in, including the Forever First Lady, Michelle Obama and Oprah from time to time. It's just one huge celebration of the culture and for the culture.
Verzuz is the party we all wanted to be on the list for and now we all have the opportunity to get in without all the hassle. Who wouldn't want to see Dr. Dre or even Janet Jackson in a Verzuz battle but they are so iconic, it would be hard to find someone to truly match them. There are so many artists who deserve a shot but finding the right match up is quite tough. While all the celebrations have had their own special quality, this list is compiled of five potential Verzuz celebrations that would most likely break the internet. Check it out and weigh in who you got or suggest another celebration.
