Who has the higher chances of winning?

The possible matchup of Justin and Suher had sparked a lot of curiosity among music lovers as they have already started placing bets on their favorite artists. Even though both singers created defining music in the era and wooed audiences with their dance moves, fans have to say that Usher might be ahead of Justin owing to his single hits. While Usher has had 18 top 10 singles, Justin has had 13.

Meanwhile, Timbaland and Justin’s musical partnership is one of the greatest of the 21st century. The renowned music producer is said to have production credits on nine of Justin’s 10 most streamed songs. 

While Usher has a longer list of hits, Justin is considered to be more relevant in the streaming era. Therefore, it remains to be seen which one of them will be crowned the winner of the Verzuz battle if it is to happen.

Fans rally for Usher’s win

Ever since reports surrounding Usher and Justin’s future Verzuz battle started circulating on the Internet, music fans surfaced on Twitter to weigh their opinion about the face-off between two of the biggest musicians. However, the majority of them are seen rallying for Usher’s win with some saying Justin isn’t the right option for a battle against him. 

One tweeted, "Who is Usher's contemporary? Is Justin Timberlake really the only option?" Another wrote, "Justin Timberlake is great but Usher would smoke him with just the Confessions album alone" Another tweeted, "Justin Timberlake is my third favorite artist, but tbh Usher might win, he might not never know till it happen"

A user wrote, "Justin Timberlake is the closest to Usher’s era that they came out of to even have battle. We’ve agreed Usher will win, but it’s not disrespectful to put him against him. The only other person who can see Usher and possibly beat him, is currently facing the State of Illinois." Adding to previous tweets, another wrote in support of Usher, "Justin Timberlake doesn’t have a 'You Make Me Wanna' but Usher definitely has a 'Cry Me A River'."
