Last Night’s Anthony Hamilton & Musiq Soulchild ‘Verzuz’ goes down in history as one of the Epic R&B Showdowns.
Tuesday’s Verzuz was a soulful night courtesy of Anthony Hamilton and Musiq Soulchild with guests Lucky Daye, Robert Glasper and more.
Although it was past Valentine’s Day, the Verzuz that went down between Anthony Hamilton and Musiq Soulchild on Tuesday was an R&B showdown of romantic hits. The epic show happened at Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles, and the sold-out event pulled an intimate crowd of R&B lovers who were completely unaware of what surprises were in store for them.
At the end of a final DJ set from DJ Zum, Hamilton and Soulchild mounted the stage and ran through their legendary catalogs. Soulchild opened his set with “Break You Off” his 2002 collaboration with fellow Philadelphians The Roots.
Jermaine Dupri showed up to DJ Hamilton’s entire set, in the same vein promoting his new ice cream line branded on his hoodie. Hamilton brought his backing vocalists, The Hamiltones, but didn’t stop there. He also invited Nappy Roots member, Big V, for a rendition of their 2002 hit “Po’ Folks”; Leela James joined Hamilton to perform their remix to “Complicated”.
While he performed hits from his catalog, Hamilton also delivered a segment of “Back to Sleep (Legends Remix)” a cover of Chris Brown‘s 2015 song of the same title.
