Alicia Keys Wants To Do Another #VERZUZ: ‘Me & Beyonce or Me & Rihanna’

Published: Monday 13th Dec 2021 by Rashad

With John Legend as her opponent during a Juneteenth-inspired battle, Alicia Keys already showcased her brigade of hits last year on the wildly popular virtual platform, ‘VERZUZ’ (which counts her rapper-producer husband Swizz Beatz as one of its curators).

But, if Keys has her way, she not only wants to pay the musical battleground another visit but she already has her sights set on a list of big-named female competitors to take on.

More inside:

As we reported here, the R&B diva – hot on the promo trail for her latest studio album ‘KEYS’ – inadvertently set Twitter ablaze when she reflected on the Lil Mama fallout from the 2009 VMAs.

Her commentary on that enduring hot topic was just one of many that got tongues wagging, including announcing her desire to gear up for another #VERZUZ battle (as seen in the short clip above).

Although she quizzed the audience for names they’d like to see her in a hit-for-hit duel against, the ones that seemed to resonate most were her ‘Put It In a Love Song’ co-star Beyonce as well as Rihanna.

“Alright, I like that,” Keys said to audience applause. “Me, Bey, or Rih.”


The “fantasy” match-up is the second time in as many weeks Beyonce has made headlines for being pit on a #VERZUZ wishlist against a fellow mega diva.  Click here to hear legendary record executive & producer LA Reid dish on why he wants to see a Bey battle against Mariah Carey.

      Beyoncé versus Chris Brown?!?

      You must be joking. Chris Brown is a auto tuned dancer who lip syncs live. Hush your mouth

  3. Blow December 13, 2021

    Alicia, sweetie. You aren’t in either of there chart success.

    Compared to them you are a musician and should compete with someone that measures to such.

    Alicia versus John Legend

    Can’t think of anyone else at this time but Rihanna not Beyoncé would dare lower themselves for this lol

    • True Tea December 13, 2021

      Yes John Legend VERZUZ Alicia is far more accurate.

      • Your Name December 13, 2021

      • Fallon December 13, 2021

        Goes to show how much you actually even read, since it states this in the posts write up.

    Not Rihanna OR Beyonce, lol

    Does Alicia NOT realize she make Music for retirees who no longer hit the clubs.

    • Fufu December 14, 2021

      Lol this one killed me hahaha. She has like 1 hit.

      • Bam December 14, 2021

        Uhhhhhhh no she posted hits all the way to 2012 after that tho…

  5. Pat December 13, 2021

    Rih is definitely out of her league. I think hit wise she could take Beyoncé. But obviously she would need this more

  6. King Khia December 13, 2021

    Alicia has classics and hits and outsold both Rihanna and Beyoncé (solo) in the 2000s, but they both wash her effortlessly if you combine 2000s and 2010s hits. Her discography would be break music after Beyoncé’s and Rihanna’s turns.

    • True Tea December 13, 2021

      Her R&B records are classics BUT overall her catalog lack energy when compared to Rihanna & Beyonce.

      Alicia would kill the vibe if Rih is serving club bangers back to back.

  7. Interac December 13, 2021

    After ‘good girl gone bad,’ Rihanna really hasn’t done it for me. I know she’s had tremendous success since then with her music, but it just hasn’t really connected with me since ‘take a bow.’ I don’t really find myself singing along to anything after that, but when I hear, “if it’s loving that you want,” I crank that sh*t right up! Lol

    Alicia’s best album is ‘As I am.’ That was her peak and her best work to date, haven’t really paid attention after that.

    • Casey December 13, 2021

      No one cares about your opinion. Her catalog and sales record says otherwise h0£

    • eric December 13, 2021

      I 100% agree about “As I Am”. It’s really too bad she’s gotten so far away from the great quality sound and lyrics in that album.

  8. J December 13, 2021

    Go ahead and do Beyonce V Rihanna

    They both need a career boost and that would be the most viewership in history lol

  9. K’man December 13, 2021

    Mama…. This is garbage!

  10. Nina December 13, 2021

    As if either of them would even entertain Versuz anyway. That’s why she felt able to say it, cos she knows damn well it would never happen.

  11. marilyn monh-O-E ® 👠(#1 DIVA) December 13, 2021

    In yo dream hunnie 💅🏿 Beyoncé and Rihanna are too busy escorting some billionaires in foreign countries

  12. Theman December 13, 2021

    It could work with Usher and Beyoncé.
    Alicia has classic R&B records.

  13. Unnatural December 14, 2021

    Screams desperation for relevancy. Girl bye. You’ve already done one and was well matched with John Legend. Now you’re just trying to do whatever to help sell your album no one cares about. It’s pathetic. And disrespectful to John Legend. Beyoncé and Rihanna are moguls at this point, they don’t really need any odd press to sell anything. Especially not ghetto versuz. Trying to save her husband investment after those old gangsters threw hands. Just sad!

    Eyes a billionaire or one’s wife? She on DJ Khaled nutso 🗝 shxt
