Rumors have been swirling for a while but Anthony Hamilton has exclusively confirmed with us that a Musiq Soulchild Verzuz battle is on the way!
We caught up with the singer to talk his new album ‘Love Is The New Black’ when he gave us the good news!
“I reached out to him [and] at the time he was working on some stuff and I think Swizz and Timbaland did as well because they reached back to me and they were like it looks like it may be happening. We just waiting on the date.”
The ‘Charlene’ singer says he’s beyond excited and even has his outfit picked out already!
As for the conversation about Diddy trying to say Jermaine Dupri couldn’t compete with him in a Verzuz, Hamilton says JD has wayyy more hits than the Harlem music mogul.
“I just feel like they’ve both have done a great job at creating music and creating their own lanes and creating their own legacies,” Hamilton said. “
But I think JD has a lot more songs in the catalog. JD has everything from Mariah Carey, Jagged Edge, Usher, me, Dondria, The Brat, Bowwow and so many others that he produced. He has an extensive loaded gun over there man but it’s going to be fun. I think it’s going to be entertaining.”
Anthony also said he would like his sons to play him if he was to be blessed with a biopic but also named Luke James as a great runner up! We are definitely here for it!
