Verzuz has been a smashing success over the past few months, bringing together dozens of Black superstars and legends.
Over time, musicians have realized that the post-Verzuz streaming boost is very real and very lucrative, prompting dozens of music's biggest stars to throw their name in the hat for a battle.
Y’all gotta get dressed up in ya Sunday’s best for this classic affair.

Originally started by music producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland as a way to pass the time for people locked down during quarantine, the Verzuz events have turned massively popular for fans to honor their favorite musicians and remember the good times.
For the stars themselves, the events have been a way to remind the public of their greatest hits and revive interest in their extensive catalogs.
Most fans of Knight are hoping she pulls classics from her past like "Midnight Train to Georgia," "Neither One of Us," "I Don't Want to Know" and "Double or Nothing."
For LaBelle, hits like "On My Own," "If Only You Knew" and "Lady Marmalade" will probably show up at some point during the event.
The Verzuz will take place at The Fillmore in Philadelphia on Sept. 13. at 8 p.m. EST. Now go fix your momma's WiFi before it starts.
