Drake Is Down For A Verzuz Showdown Of Usher & Timberlake

CELEBRITY NEWS - Karen Smith Article


Drake is all for a Verzuz with the iconic Usher and Justin Timberlake according to Timbaland.

Verzuz has become an event that people take time out of their lives to see their favorite artists celebrate their catalog in a face-off style presentation. The concept of Timbaland and Swizz Beatz has seen the unlikely coming together of Jeezy and Gucci Mane and even paying homage to the pioneers such as Patti Labelle and Gladys Knight.

What the new generation is waiting on is a Verzuz that consists of Toronto rap icon Drake. People have suggested he battle with his frenemy in Kanye West or the likes of Chris Brown. What we do know is that Drake is a fan after a revelation from an interview with Timbaland on the Jalen & Jacoby show.

According to Timbaland, who was a recent guest on the Jalen & Jacoby show, Drake reached out to him regarding a much-discussed potential battle.

Jalen Rose made mention of artists that have been suggested by fans online for a possible Verzuz. He name dropped Missy Elliott and Busta Rhymes, No Limit Records and Cash Money, and more. He then made the match up of Usher and Justin Timberlake which Timbaland had a response for. “Justin Timberlake… yes, we know,” said Timbaland. “It’s so funny. Drake hit me up too about it. He said, ‘we gotta make that happen’. I’m like, ‘soon to come, soon to come’.

Would you be interested in seeing this clash of popular singers? Should Timbaland find a way to incorporate Drake into a future Verzuz performance? Time will tell if any of this will happen.
