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.
