OMARION EYES VERZUZ BATTLE WITH CHRIS BROWN: ‘THAT WOULD BE DOPE’
Written by torresanz on September 23, 2021
After the last Verzuz matchups, fans are patiently waiting for the next installment of the popular battle series. While there’s no word yet on the next showdown, Omarion gave an idea for a battle that had fans talking all over Twitter.
In a recent interview Omarion shared his take on the perfect Verzuz matchup for him. Omarion’s career began when he was a member of B2K up until he went solo in 2004, and he has a respectable catalog that spans 20 years.
“I think it would only be a handful of people that I feel like that it would be a good Verzuz,” he said. “I think there’s a few people out there that I could do, but it’s a small class of people who perform like myself.”
He continued, “Like I said, it’s only a few people. People have been throwing around some names.”
One of the show hosts threw Ray J, Pretty Ricky and Chris Brown into the mix, and Omarion revealed a battle with CB “would be dope.” Fans were quick to shut down Omarion for thinking he could even step toe-to-toe with Chris Brown.
“Omarion said he’d do a #Verzuz with Chris Brown… Don’t do it O, that’s suicide! Marques Houston, get your bro…,” one fan wrote.
Another tweeted, “Now who done told Omarion he could go hit for hit with Chris brown? Baby you couldn’t even go against Trey Songz and you think you can take CHRIS????”
A third person said,”not Omarion tryna have a Verzuz w/ Chris Brown. O got some hits .. SOME; Chris could play 1 album and demolish him lol. If the Verzuz battle was dancing, that would make more since, but HIT for HIT, nah. Sit this one out, playa!”
Chris Brown has already made it clear he’s not interested in taking the Verzuz stage as he feels he has no competition. Regardless, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are doing their best to get Chris Brown involved with Verzuz somehow.
Earlier this year, Timbaland explained Chris Brown might be unbeatable in a Verzuz showdown during his visit to The Breakfast Club. At the time, fans were hoping to see a showdown between Usher and Chris Brown, but nothing came to fruition.
“Ain’t nobody catalog like Chris Brown’s,” Timbaland stated, surprising Charlamagne Tha God in the process. “Come on now, don’t do that. Chris Brown got too much. He’s got like 50 bags, bro.”
