Omarion and Mario, two R&B stars, are ready to compete in a Verzuz duel. Verzuz revealed Friday night that the two singers will compete with their biggest hits on June 23. The announcement occurred after the two artists debated who they would like to face in a future challenge. It’s happening right now.
The B2K frontman and “Post To Be” singer will face the “Just a Friend” artist on Thursday, June 23 at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET at The Novo in Los Angeles. The event is free to the public, and tickets can be purchased at VerzuzTV.com. It will be streamed on Instagram, Triller, and YouTube, as usual. On the same night, Verzuz will present a “bonus” match pitting Ray J and Bobby V against Pleasure P and Sammie.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz made the Verzuz music series, which is a battle between well-known artists.
Teddy Riley vs. Babyface, Erykah Badu vs. Jill Scott, Brandy vs. Monica, Chaka Khan vs. Stephanie Mills, SWV vs. XSCAPE, and the late DMX vs. Snoop Dogg were just a few of the epic sessions.
In 2021, Triller bought the Verzuz platform. According to the Los Angeles Times, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz became shareholders in Triller’s parent company, Thriller Network, which is based in L.A.
The two singer-songwriters will compare their tracklistings at the event, which can be live-streamed on YouTube, Triller, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. The battle is a return to the world of R&B after the battle between 8Ball and MJG vs. UGK last month.
Like the last event, tonight’s battle between Verzuz and his enemies was announced less than a week ago. Mario and Omarion are performing live in Los Angeles. Before them, Ray J and Bobby V are going up against Pleasure P and Sammie. The game was supposed to start at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.

The headliners have some big songs, and “Let Me Love You” by Mario, which was a huge hit in 2004, is almost certain to be one of them. Omarion has a lot of interesting solo music to share. He has had two #1 albums.
Verzuz hasn’t said what will happen after this fight, but a lot of musicians have said they are ready to step down. This month, Jim Jones of the rap group Dipset said he thought he would “smoke” Lloyd Banks if he could. There are also rumors that Memphis Blake and Juelz Santana might say no, but they haven’t officially said so yet.
