R&B stars Brandy and Monica‘s “Verzuz” battle, which aired on Monday, August 31, broke all previous records for the series and garnered more than 6 million views.
“6+ MILLION in total (not 1.2M!) tuned in to watch the Super Bowl of Livestreams. This is the NEW TV. The queens @Brandy and @MonicaDenise broke all #VERZUZ records and more!” the organizers shared on social media.
The episode generated over 1 million tweets in the U.S. and 1.9 million tweets globally. It also helped to raise $250,000 for Michelle Obama‘s When We All Vote.
“Verzuz,” launched in March by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, started out as a 20-song showdown between producers and now sees rappers and performers battling it out, taking turns playing a song from a list of 20 tracks from across their catalog.
Past matchups have included Rick Ross vs. 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg vs. DMX, Boi-1da vs. Hit-Boy, Fabolous vs. Jadakiss, T-Pain vs. Lil Jon, and Erykah Badu vs. Jill Scott, among others.
