    This #Verzuz is spectacular for two reasons: - They’ve got enough ammo to go for 4+ hours without a miss - They started on time

    Earth Wind & Fire’s “September” is literally the sonic manifestation of what happiness feels like. It’s such an incredible song. #verzuz

    That wasn’t a #Verzuz... That was a masterclass. Earth, Wind and Fire and The Isley Brothers are living legends and true icons.

    I think this #Verzuz more than any other reminded me how much I miss listening to music in community, dancing with/in crowds, sharing that bond fashioned out of communal listening.

    ‘Contagious’ was in 2001...The Isley’s are now the first person on #Verzuz to play hits from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.

    EWF and Isley Bros are the backbone to R&B. Once you realize how many artists have sampled their music it’s undeniable. #Verzuz

    Tonight’s #Verzuz is another reason I’m proud to have been born Black and born to lovers of music. I witnessed history and joy simultaneously tonight and I don’t think it can ever be replicated. I haven’t been this happy all quarantine.

    And of course, I wouldn't let you leave empty-handed — be sure to tuck this playlist away for whenever outside REALLY opens back up!
