Keith Sweat and Bobby Brown‘s R&B VERZUZ Battle gave exactly what it was supposed to. Nostalgia. Entertainment. Dance Moves. Laughs.

Get into it inside…

It was the VERZUZ Battle pop-up you didn’t know you needed, but once you got it, it was everything you thought it would be…plus more.

On June 29th, VERZUZ made a surprise announcement that R&B legends Keith Sweat and Bobby Brown would perform a special Essence Festival battle after VERZUZ joined forces with Essence Magazine.

Kicking off three days of live shows at New Orleans’ Superdome, Keith Sweat & Bobby Brown – two of the biggest names in R&B – hit the stage to battle it out on stage with one another.

It didn’t take long before the R&B icons started cutting up. During the second round of the battle, Keith performed “Make You Sweat” and then Bobby responded with New Edition’s “Mr. Telephone Man.”

While Bobby was performing, viewers in the comment section were clowning over the fact Bobby was screaming his lyrics instead of singing.



After Bobby wrapped up his track, Keith asked, “Hold up. Am I battling Bobby Brown or New Edition?”

“You battling Bobby,” Bobby responded before pretending to bring out New Edition on stage.

Despite the vocals, Bobby made sure to serve up a SHOW:

And Keith Sweat made sure to serenade the audience:



Mr. Sweat gave the ladies what they want with “Nobody,” which features Athena Cage:



Meanwhile, social media was CUTTING UP about the guys sounding winded and how they were serving up uncle vibes. Peep the funny tweets below:

















The Internet remains undefeated.  But listen, it’s all in fun.  We are always here for black legends getting their flowers AND respect.

At the end, Keith & Bobby dapped each other up and shared a hug:
