Verzuz co-creators Timbaland and Swizz Beatz spoke about potential matchups for the next few battles — and one of the pairings aligns with Drake‘s dream.
Although Champagne Papi hasn’t expressed interest in participating in a Verzuz battle himself, he’d happily toast to Usher and Justin Timberlake going hit-for-hit and pleaded with Timbaland to come through with his request.
Timbo talked about the Canadian rapper hitting his line on the Jalen & Jacoby show when the Usher and JT Verzuz battle was pitched. “Drake hit me up about it too. He said, ‘We gotta make that happen, we gotta make that happen,'” the megaproducer recalled of their conversation. “Soon to come, soon to come.”
He also noted that Missy Elliott and Busta Rhymes would create “the best party that could ever happen on Verzuz.”
“It’s just a matter of comfort zone of my sister wanting to celebrate with her brother,” Timbaland said of his frequent collaborator Elliott. “I understand that it’s not competition, it’s a party. I’ve been working on that and talking to her, but I think that would be an amazing Verzuz.”
