Verzuz: Swizz Beatz vs. Timbaland (The Rematch)
Swizz Beatz and Timbaland took it back to where it all started for a rematch of their Verzuz.
On Sunday (May 30), the co-founders and super-producers went head-to-head in front of a live audience at Miami’s LIV nightclub with Rick Ross, Fabolous, Nas, DaBaby, Busta Rhymes, and more in attendance.
Opened with a virtual salute from Missy Elliott, Swizzy and Timbo shuffled back through their extensive catalog and performed their hits including their solo tracks, produced records, star-studded collaborations, classic features, and many more. Swizz even played a new version of “Bath Salt” featuring a never heard before verse by J.Cole. The Memorial Day Weekend special event was dedicated to the late DMX and Aaliyah.
Last March, the pair launched Verzuz at the start of the pandemic with their very own Swizz Beats vs. Timbaland. Since then, it has spawned countless battles and was recently acquired by Triller Network. Back in 2018, the hitmakers brought their first ever battle on the main stage of Hot 97’s Summer Jam.
Swizz Beatz vs. Timbaland follows Verzuz’ previous SWV vs. Xscape on Mother’s Day and arrives ahead of the recently announced Soulja Boy vs. Bow Wow.
