Following numerous technical issues, the Teddy Riley/Babyface Verzuz is back on



Where to begin...

Last night, R&B legends Teddy Riley and Babyface were set to participate in a Verzuz battle on Instagram. Timbaland and Swizz Beatz created the friendly competition as a way to give back to fans during this time. The Riley/Babyface battle competition was highly publicized on social media and fans turned in to see their favorites perform.

What followed was a glorious and hilarious night on social media, particularly Black Twitter. The event was highlighted by Toni Braxton's tweets documenting the fiasco.

Some of her tweets (definitely go to her page and check it out):












Babyface was alone and ready to go. Teddy Riley had an entire crew with him to film his performance. Riley was also trying to stream the performance on his website and on Instagram at the same time. That led to the echo and additional sound issues.







Babyface was the one to pull the plug and was extremely gracious at Riley's numerous fuckups.



The battle has been rescheduled for tomorrow, 4/20, at 8pm est.
