Swizz Beatz recently caught backlash on social media for saying Janet Jackson doesn’t have the catalog to match Missy Elliott in a Verzuz battle. Now Janet is seemingly responding to the shade.

Swizz Beatz was on a live video with Timbaland, the co-creator of Verzuz, when Timbaland suggested a battle between Janet and Missy Elliott. Swizz shook his head in disagreement and said,

Because Missy can be multiple people. Janet just gonna be Janet.

Missy was in the live chat and she commented ‘her vault is too big’ in reference to Janet Jackson’s decades long career of singing top charting songs.

But Swizz Beatz disagreed and said,

I don’t think so. I don’t agree. I disagree with that.

As if Janet doesn’t have the hits!

Now Janet is seemingly responding to the shade from Swizz Beatz with some shade of her own. She posted a picture of herself with a pair of large shades over her eyes and said,

Monday vibes. Blocking the shade.

    Janet and Missy are a perfect pick for a Verzuz battle. There is no other entertainer like Janet or Missy, so for that reason they should do the battle.

      You a lie, Janet got the catalog but she couldn’t sing like his wife on her best day. Don’t come for Alicia

    Perhaps Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul in the verzuz battle. Hey they both are extraordinary in superb stage performance with regard to their individual dance styles and also pretty good vocalist too, especially when those right songs they sing are selected to custom suit each of their voices.
