There is no doubt that Swizz Beatz and Timbaland created one of the best things that came out of the pandemic with the hit combat series Verzuz. As the two men jumped on Instagram live to discuss the epic match between Earth, Wind and Fire and the Isley Brothers, Swizz revealed that he believes their platform is bigger than “Saturday Night Live”.
Timbaland commented that Verzuz is the new “SNL”.
“No, we’re bigger than that,” Swizz replied. “Our numbers beat SNL.” Timbaland then asked him to do it again. “Our numbers are bigger than SNL,” Swizz repeated. “It’s not a hat. It’s a real conversation.”
The two moguls were then discussing the latest Verzuz, which took place on Easter Sunday (April 4). Producer Ruff Ryders said it will be hard to beat the game of Earth, Wind & Fire and The Isley Brothers. “It’s not a matter of the best Verzuz,” he added. “It’s about celebrating the creative.”
“So some nights we’re going to have a Super Bowl, some nights a Pro Bowl, some nights a Rose Bowl, but we’re going to have a good time,” Swizz said.
Last week, REVOLT reported that Verzuz has teamed up with Peloton to bring its musical battles to the popular fitness platform. The Peloton Verzuz “is not like anything Peloton has ever done before,” and will come to life during Peloton’s motivational classes taught by its best-in-class instructors available through a Peloton bike, treadmill or app that offers a 30-day free trial. new members “, according to Diversity.
“I think the parallel lines with Verzuz and Peloton are the same,” Swizz said. “You are in the zone. Your energy is there. They are all on VIP, in the same places, at the show. “
The first Peloton Verzuz class to become available was Brandy Vs. Monica – whose August battle Verzuz gathered more than 6 million viewers on Instagram and Apple Music. Training members can choose whether they are #VerzuzBrandy or #VerzuzMonica during their session.
