The platform that Swizz Beatz and Timbaland built exactly one year ago at the start of quarantine is growing bigger and bigger. On Monday (March 29), they announced a new partnership with Peloton as an extension of Peloton’s Artist Series with plans to “celebrate the iconic music of two legendary artists, in one friendly competition, across multiple disciplines.”
The first set of workouts from the collab pair up Monica’s music verzuz Brandy’s, which fans got a taste of during their Verzuz last summer.
“At the end of the month, we’ll celebrate both artists by adding up every Verzuz Tag, and sharing a recap of who our community showed up for,” Peloton’s head of music Gwen Bethel Riley said in a statement.
