Verzuz, which started as a response to the pandemic, has been hosting increasingly heavyweight battles each week, including this past Sunday’s reunion of nemeses and collaborators Brandy and Monica, which was watched by a purported 1.2 million viewers worldwide. Other pairings that have gone head-to-head on Verzuz include Erykah Badu and Jill Scott and Nelly and Ludacris. Read about what went down during Brandy and Monica’s Verzuz here.
