Roommates, as fans eagerly gear up for the next round of Verzuz battles, one artist you won’t see participating is Trey Songz. During a recent interview, Trey shot down all hopes that he would ever be open to going 20 rounds in a Verzuz battle with another artist.
While many artists are excited to go head-to-head in a Verzuz battle with 20 of their greatest hits, Trey Songz does not feel the same way…at all.
When asked in an interview if he would ever want to be a part of the musical phenomenon, Trey had this to say:
“No, I don’t. I don’t see myself doing it. I don’t got a problem with it — and I love Verzuz don’t get me wrong. I love everything that Verzuz stands for. I love that we have legendary people coming up and showing each other love. And what you see after these battles, a lot of younger people are actually put on to these classic artists and you see their streams go up, etc. I never really been into being in competition with the next man, next woman and putting myself in a position where I gotta say, ‘This is better than what you’ve done.’ I’m in competition with myself.”
He continued, adding:
“And furthermore, I don’t think it’s nobody that really do what I do. It’s a few people I don’t wanna see in a battle. I don’t wanna see Chris Brown in no battle, I don’t wanna see Usher in no battle. I feel like people [who] have solidified a space for themselves — like without question — should not be battling nobody. If they really wanna get everybody to do a Verzuz, they should be just appreciation joints just for certain artists — where you get one artists up there and they play 20 of their bangers and you just rock with that.”
Meanwhile, as we previously reported, Swizz Beatz officially confirmed earlier this week that season two of Verzuz is on the way.
