Verzuz has tapped Steve Harvey to host this weekend’s Verzuz between The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire.
The “Family Feud” host will preside over the highly-anticipated matchup between the legendary R&B groups when it streams live on Easter Sunday, April 4, at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET. This marks the first time that Verzuz has had a host.
Earlier this month, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon faced off in a Verzuz battle. Other upcoming livestreams include Redman vs. Method Man on April 20 and SWV vs. Xscape on May 8. Verzuz has also teased five more battles including a Mother’s Day special and rumored rematch between Swizz Beatz and Timbaland.
One year after its launch, Swizz and Timbaland sold their global livestream music series to Triller for an undisclosed amount. The Verzuz co-creators will become large shareholders in the Triller Network and serve as brand visionaries on the Triller Verzuz management team.
Verzuz also recently partnered with fitness company Peloton for a collection of themed workouts soundtracked by a Verzuz artist’s catalog or new album. The first round will feature songs by Brandy and Monica in honor of Women’s History Month.
