Verzuz co-founders catch heat for charging viewers to watch Anthony Hamilton and Musiq Soulchild

Singer-songwriters Anthony Hamilton and Musiq Soulchild go head-to-head in a special Valentine's Day edition tonight.

Timbaland & Swizz Beatz Catch Flack Over Verzuz Requiring Triller Subscription, Immediately Switched Back To IG Live.

Verzuz's watchers weren’t feeling the love after Verzuz organizers announced that tonight’s Valentine’s Day-themed battle would not be available to watch on Instagram.

On Monday (February 14), the official Verzuz Instagram page shared a teaser promoting the upcoming showdown between Anthony Hamilton and Musiq Soulchild.

“TOMORROW NIGHT [Anthony Hamilton] vs [Musiq Soulchild] 2/15. To watch, sign up NOW for the #TrillerVerzPass (14-Day trial* included!! DON’T WAIT!!) LINK IN BIO!!!” the post read.

After facing major backlash from fans who were upset that the virtual series would no longer be free to watch, co-founder Swizz Beatz hopped on his social platform to clarify the situation. In an Instagram post, the Verzuz co-founder explained that the battle will still be available to stream tonight for free on Instagram Live.

“See y’all rite here tomorrow on insta [Verzuz]. Who y’all rocking with [Anthony Hamilton] or [Musiq Soulchild]?” he wrote “You can also watch in HD on”
