That’s right, the word from the Babyface vs. Teddy Riley battle organizers is the two legends hit more than 4 million followers on Instagram Live last night. The battle of producers, started by super producers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz in collaboration with Verzuz Tv, “broke the internet,” and even had to be shut down for bandwidth issues…
While both men initially thought they reached at least 3 million hits on Live during the event and subsequent crash, by the end they got word the Babyface vs. Teddy Riley faceoff actually smashed through 4 million individual accounts, all craving for the music of the legends.
Showing off an official crash message from Instagram, Swizz Beats wrote, “4mill plus tonight! #verzuz we made history and crashed the internet!!!!!”
Timbaland and Swizz Beats also gave lots of thanks and shoutouts to all involved and indeed, Babyface and Teddy Riley, for sharing their music. However, everyone is wondering what’s next, who’s next, and a lot of people are actually wondering if these events are making money.
