The next Verzuz battle will look a lot different thanks to increasing COVID-19 cases.

Verzuz released this statement today on social media saying that because of the rising cases of COVID-19, their upcoming Verzuz battles will not take place in the same room, they will be going back to separate locations for a while.

The Ashanti/Keyshia Cole battle, originally scheduled for December 12th, had to be postponed because Ashanti had tested positive for COVID-19.  She has since tested negative and says that she is starting the New Year off healthy.
