Drake wants to see Usher and Justin Timberlake in an upcoming "Verzuz" battle.

During their appearance on ESPN2's "Jalen And Jacoby" show, "Verzuz" creators Timbaland and Swizz Beatz discussed the online battle show.

The show's co-host Jalen Rose gave a few battle suggestions, including a match between Usher and Timberlake.

"Yes we know," Timbaland said responding to the idea. "It's so funny, Drake hit me up too about it. He said, 'We gotta make that happen.' I said, 'Soon to come. Soon to come.'"

"Verzuz" was launched Timbaland and Swizz Beatz during the lockdown period. The program started out as a 20-song showdown between producers and now sees rappers and performers battling it out, taking turns playing a song from a list of 20 tracks from across their catalog.

Past matchups have included Brandy vs. Monica, Rick Ross vs. 2 Chainz, and Snoop Dogg vs. DMX, among others.
