Beenie, Bounty Reap Big from Verzuz Battle Success


Dancehall artistes Beenie Man and Bounty Killer have set more records with their epic Verzuz battle.

The duo have seen a whopping 216 percent increase in music streams following their still-talked-about all online showdowns in May.
The Jamaican dancehall artistes lost out on first place to Erykah Badu and Jill Scott by a mere one percent.
The Teddy Riley and Babyface battle placed third with a 90 percent increase, while Ludacris and Nelly’s battle on May 16 raised their streaming numbers by a combined 30 percent.
Producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, who co-created the Verzuz Instagram Live series during the COVID-19 quarantine lockdown, had hundreds of thousands of fans – including celebs – glued to their devices as two prominent producers, singers or songwriters showcased their catalogues for entertainment purposes and also for bragging rights.
