Rap icon Drake knows his R&B music; he’s something of a crooner himself. Drake recently hit up super-producer Timbaland to bring two superstar singers together for an epic Verzuz battle.
Drake Wants To See Usher Verzuz Justin Timberlake
After the Verzuz showdown between Ashanti and Keyshia Cole was another success, series co-creators Timbaland and Swizz Beatz have been hounded about who’s up next. A popular pitch has been Usher Verzuz Justin Timberlake, which Timbo says Drake really wants to see.
“It’s so funny, Drake hit me up too about it. He said, ‘We gotta make that happen.’ I said, ‘Soon to come. Soon to come.” (Timbaland on ‘Jalen & Jacoby’)
Historic Numbers For Ashanti Verzuz Keyshia Cole
R&B star Ashanti knows numbers don’t lie. The veteran songstress has come forward to celebrate breaking into new Verzuz stats territory with a history number of people tuned into her battle with Keyshia Cole.

Keyshia Cole’s New Single
This week, Keyshia Cole went to her Twitter page to break new music news to fans. Barring any setbacks or delays, her new anthem will arrive in early February.
“2.5.21 // New Single ‘I Don’t Want To Be In Love’”
OT Genasis Crashes The Party
Cole nearly crashed the Internet with a huge Verzuz cameo. Keyshia started up her unforgettable “Love” anthem and moments later, her perceived rap rival O.T Genasis hopped onto the screen as they both laughed and crooned a portion of his Crip-themed version.
O.T. Genasis makes an unexpected and well-received cameo during the Verzuz battle between Ashanti and Keyshia Cole. Cole showed the world they’re on solid terms after appearing to clash in late 2019 when he released his Crip-inspired “Love” remix.
