Just like the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Verzuz pretty much has its own cinematic universe (VCU) at this point. Speaking of, would the Earth Wind & Fire Verzuz The Isley Brothers event be the equivalent of The Avengers?
Anyway, Verzuz co-founders Swizz Beatz and Timbaland announced on Tuesday that they will perform a special “rematch” Verzuz event for Memorial Day weekend, also known as the unofficial start of summer.
Back in March, the official Verzuz social media team formed like Voltron and teased a whole upcoming line-up, equipped with a flyer. We knew that there will be a special “Rematch” Verzuz to celebrate Memorial Day at the time, but we didn’t know who the acts would be. Now we know!
This past March—the 24th to be exact—was also the one-year anniversary of the time Swizz and Timbaland hopped on IG Live and began the virtual version of Verzuz we know and enjoy today.
So while it would’ve been a fun clusterfuck to see a rematch of Teddy Riley Verzuz Babyface, it looks like Verzuz is paying homage to its origins.
In other (way less fun and very sobering) news, Soulja Boy announced on Saturday that he and Bow Wow would be performing in an upcoming Verzuz.
