Omarion is entertaining the thought of going head-to-head with Chris Brown in a Verzuz. During a recent conversation with the “Big Tigger Morning Show,” the “Distance” singer talked about the competition platform and shared his thoughts about potential opponents who have the discography and performance skills to spar with him in a matchup.
“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.” The hosts asked O to list some singers, and he answered, “Like I said, it’s only a few people. People have been throwing around some names.”
Omarion didn’t appear to be interested upon the mention of a battle with Ray J, but when hearing Brown’s name, he said, “That would be dope.” It’s not yet clear how the Virginia star feels about the hypothetical showdown.
Since Ja Rule and Fat Joe faced off in front of their many fans at Madison Square Garden, conversations have sprung up regarding a few other desired battles. Jermaine Dupri challenged Diddy to a Verzuz and taunted him a few times on Fat Joe’s Instagram Live, but the CEO of Bad Boy said that his preferred competitor was Dr. Dre, noting Dupri “ain’t got enough hits.”
Dru Hill later displayed confidence in their discography when they called out several R&B groups for a battle, and in the world of comedy, Katt Williams claimed he would reign supreme after a Verzuz against Kevin Hart.
“It’s almost cheating for me. I have over 10 specials,” Williams said during an interview with Persia Nicole. “I don’t have to pick but two jokes from each special and I’ve already deaded anyone whose last name isn’t Pryor anyway…We don’t wanna add 52 movies, we certainly don’t wanna add 11 specials, we certainly don’t wanna add 49 television appearances, we don’t wanna add an Emmy. It’s almost a battle we can’t really afford to be in. …It probably don’t match up the way you think it match up.”
