Jaheim Challenges Usher to a #VERZUZ Battle: “Someone Set It Up!”

Published: Sunday 9th Jan 2022 by Rashad

‘Finding My Way Back’ belter Jaheim has found his way back to the top of Black Twitter’s side-eye list after suggesting he could take on R&B veteran Usher in a #Verzuz battle.

Details inside:

The 43-year-old, who boasts 5 Hot 100 top 40 hits to his credit spawned between 2000-2004, reportedly took to private Instagram recently to reveal his interest in taking to the #Verzuz platform in a hits-for-hits showdown.

Uploading a side-by-side shot of himself and Ush, Jaheim captioned the snap:

“Someone set it up !!! Let’s move the pawn out the way!!! King Move but if you are scared I’ll say checkmate”

Commenters – echoing a stance made by many over Twitter – flocked to the post to criticize the embattled R&B singer.

Usher – who, with 18 Hot 100 top 10 hits and over 100 million records sold, reigns as one of the best-selling R&B acts in history – has yet to respond to the challenge as of time reported.

    Settle what? Was this ever even a debate? Musiq Soulchild, Bilal, or Glenn Lewis would be more ideal.

        That was meant for Eric.

        The shade of TGJ. They could have found a nicer recent pic than that to use.

    That will never ever happen.

    Jaheim out here looking like an Australian Aboriginee. Some of these artist are extremely delusional. Usher has no competition within’ the R&B Community. He’s in his own league.

  6. Josh L January 9, 2022

    He’s already lost in hairline…

    Chile Jaheim don’t want them problems!!!! He don’t even have enough hits to compete with Usher!!! And the ones he does have cant compete with Ushers worst song lol Usher will eat him alive!!! Jaheim wasn’t even on his level back then!!!

    Why would you use that image of Jaheim for this article? You took a screenshot of what he said then chose an old unpleasant photo instead of one from a recent post. That’s so conniving. 21St century journalism at it’s best.
    Yet still…
    …Jaheim is a way better singer but Usher is an entertainer so people will vote for him over Jaheim.

    • True Tea January 9, 2022

      Jaheim isn’t a better singer. Usher’s voice is far more versatile & sounds good on pretty much anything from EDM to Quiet Storm R&B. Jaheim can sing but he can only sing Adult Contemporary R&B.

    No Jaheim😒

  10. Michael January 10, 2022

    This would be a waste of Ushers time.

  11. JD January 10, 2022

    Jaheim oughta be ashamed of himself, Usher gon bust another hole up in his ass … You’ve gotta be kidding me. Lol.

  12. Tamika Bowens January 10, 2022

    Usher & Chris Brown yes but Usher & Jahiem is like Chris Brown in a versus against Omarian.Its not a match

  13. Carokyn January 10, 2022

    Well, this will surely be a easy winner for Usher. JAHEIM is a terrible live performer.

  16. Oralia Cone January 10, 2022

    Chris Brown is the only match for Usher
