In an interview with E! News, Usher explained that he was aware of fans wanting him to take the Verzuz stage, but shut down any rumours that a match was in the works.

Usher said "there was a flyer that was put together. It’s not official, no, we’re not doing that."

Only time will tell whether Usher will take the mic and compete in a Verzuz battle.
