Bobby Brown and Keith Sweat, two of the greatest R&B singers of all time, will battle it out in the next Verzuz

Verzuz has announced its next match-up (and it’s not Beanie Sigel vs. N.O.R.E.)

Legendary singers Keith Sweat and Bobby Brown will face off in a Verzuz that will be part of Essence Festival 2021. The event will be going down on July 1st, at 8 PM EST.

Essence Fest is all-virtual this year. So it is still unclear if there will be a crowd for Keith Sweat and Bobby Brown’s matchup. (Or will they take it back to the split screen, IG days.)

This is the type of match-up that makes Verzuz special. Two legendary singers, with huge fan bases and impenetrable catalogues, picking their 20 best songs. Even though Verzuz started out mostly as a showcase for rappers there have already been a number of memorable battles that involved R&B and soul singers. There was the iconic Teddy Riley vs. Babyface match-up; Jill Scott and Erykah Badu’’s love fest; Patti LaBelle’s rendezvous with Gladys Knight; and SWV taking on Xscape. 

With Sweat and Brown, you have two of the most notable voices of the ’80s. Should be a treat. 

After the battle was announced, users on social media were spilt on who they thought would win the matchup:

The last Verzuz matchup occurred over the weekend when Soulja Boy and Bow Wow faced off. Before that, you had Eve and Trina, in the first Verzuz that featured female rappers.
