Beenie Man and Bounty Killer joins 43 other artistes who picked up shares in Triller Network after Swizz Beatz and Timbaland sold Verzuz. There has been a seismic shift in the way music and entertainment have been consumed since the onset of the Covid-19. Some entertainers, especially those in the Caribbean, have not been able to move about as freely as they would have liked. This sort of bondage, not only locally but also on an international level, has seen a halt in tours and live performances. A need for the industry to become a bit more creative was born, and as such, most organizers and entertainers turned online since they could still reach their fans in real-time while remaining socially distant. The sales for the artistes who are featured on the Verzuz battle have helped to boost their sales and streams. Two entertainers featured in what many have concluded as a keenly contested battle are veteran dancehall artistes and former rival turn friends, Bounty Killer and Beenie Man. Both men have been enjoying a major uptick in their music sales and streaming numbers since their 2020 appearance. Today they got an even further boost, following the announcement that Verzuz, which was created by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, had been acquired by Triller Network. Beenie Man and Bounty Killer’s battle helped to revive the platform and set a bee standard that others would follow. As the first dancehall pairing to do battle via the platform, it has been described as epic and managed to have over 500,000 live views on Instagram. That particular clash was also said to be a favorite of both Swizz and Timbaland, who are both avid dancehall fans.
