Round By Round Break Down of the Bobby Brown vs Keith Sweat Verzuz

Here’s another Verzuz we didn’t know we were getting, but we absolutely needed.  R&B royalty! New Jack Swing era legends! Bobby Brown vs Keith Sweat! So much music to look forward to between these two.

The Bobby Brown vs. Keith Sweat Verzuz is presented by Essence Mag as part of their Essence Festival of Culture presentation.  For fans, even though this was only announced less than 4 days before the battle, it is one of the most anticipated Verzuz battles yet.

Bobby Brown is not only a member of a legendary R&B group, New Edition, he also has had quite a successful solo career with a couple classic albums under his belt.

Keith Sweat has been a successful solo artist for so long that he has fans in different generations.  Still, somehow the Harlem native looks almost exactly how he looked when he first emerged on the scene.

I love these New Edition tracks, but these aren’t the classics.  Just songs Bobby had good runs on.

Round 8: Keith Sweat featuring Snoop Dogg – “Come And Get With Me” vs. Ja Rule featuring Bobby Brown – “Thug Lovin'”
