Earth, Wind & Fire and the Isley Brothers’ VERZUZ Battle: Here’s What Happened

The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire faced each other for VERZUZ tonight. Special guest host Steve Harvey hosted the Easter show while the two legendary groups performed their songs and told some stories. It ended with a big match-up, “That Lady” versus “September” before a video premiered for the Isleys’ new Snoop Dogg song “Friends and Family”.

In March, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz announced that they had sold the brand to Triller. Artists who had previously performed at VERZUZ received a financial contribution to the new partnership.
