If anything positive has come out of this COVID-19 quarantine, it's been the recent Instagram Live beat / songwriting battles that have been keeping us sane and entertaining us from the safety of our homes.
D-Nice set it off with his record-breaking 9-hour DJ set last week (check that playlist out here), then the Hip-Hop juggernauts Swizz Beatz and Timbaland went head-to-head in a beat battle earlier this week. With the culture buzzing, you know the songwriters had to clock in and go to work.
The Dream and Sean Garrett went toe-to-toe in a battle that was classic off rip just due to Sean's antics throughout the whole Live. (go check the tape, he was wildin')
Then today, March 29th, it was Ne-Yo and Johnta Austin's turn. Both heavyweights of songwriting that have penned numerous hits for your favorite artists played classic after classic in a battle that will go down as arguably the best we've seen so far during the #QuarantineEra. We have curated the majority of the vibes below in playlists you can vibe out to on your own. Peep the recaps below as well:
