Chris Brown wants his Verzuz with Usher to make sense: ‘Usher would whoop him up’
Chris Brown, who dropped his 10th solo album ‘Breezy’ on Friday, June 24, sat on Drink Champs for an interview where he spoke about a potential Verzuz battle with R&B icon Usher. The 33-year-old crooner also mentioned Drake for the same dubbing him as a “formidable opponent” in a hypothetical Verzuz scenario.
A Verzuz between Chris Brown and Usher has been discussed for long and the former’s latest comment comes days after he revealed that he was in touch with Verzuz founders Timbaland and Swizz Beatz for a potential Verzuz face-off. Interestingly, Verzuz not only hosts face-offs between rappers but also equally pays attention to R&B singers. The last Verzuz battle went down between R&B icons Omarion and Mario.
Will Chris Brown face Usher in a Verzuz battle?
Chris Brown, in his latest interview, addressed how some of his fans have proposed the idea of him going against Usher. According to the ‘Go Crazy’ hitmaker, the idea represented a promising pairing for his fans but it would “have to make sense” for both artists. Shedding further light on the same, Chris Brown asserted, “They want me and Usher to do it." He added, “It only makes sense but it’s gotta make more sense. I would want to celebrate him and his life just as much as celebrating my stuff. I can’t act like he ain’t a pioneer, as well.”
Chris Brown’s latest comments come after he spoke in an interview with Big Boy about why he had not participated in a Verzuz battle in the past. “Me at my career now, I ain’t hanging no towel up. I don’t feel that I wanna go up against somebody that might not be in there”, said Brown, as reported by Billboard. He added, “It’s too much of a Verzuz for me. I don’t want to have to overshadow nobody or really, ‘Damn, that boy killed this person” concluding, “I don’t even want to go back and forth with none of that.”
