We should all be familiar with what a Versuz battle is, right?

If not, here's a quick refresher.

In March 2020 during the pandemic, producers Swizz Beats and Timbaland went on Instagram one night and went back and forth playing hits they've both produced over the years.

After the success of that initial session on Instagram, somebody came up with the idea of making it a live event, and the concept of two artists or producers playing their hits while hundreds of thousands of people watched became a pop culture phenomenon.

Versuz Battles Got Bigger

After the initial Versuz between Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, they obtained national sponsors, and by the time it was ok for people to "come back outside" (because of COVID-19) the two producers sold it to Triller.

Now Versuz battles are being held in theaters, with big-name artists of different genres.

Who would Stevie Wonder battle in a Versuz? Before I answer that...

Let's Take A Small Stevie Break

I honestly think the only person who would have a fighting chance at even holding a candle to Stevie Wonder is Robert Sylvester Kelly, and we all know where he's at these days.

Some people suggest Smokey Robinson, others say Al Green, I say R. Kelly.

Here's What People On Facebook Had To Say

 

Who do you think would be a good Versuz battle against the living legend Stevie Wonder?

Here Are 11 New Edition Classics That Are Undeniable

These Are 11 Songs by the R& B Group, New Edition Classic Songs That Are Undeniable

New Edition was formed in the late 1970s in The Roxbury area of Boston Massachusetts.

Bobby Brown, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant and Ricky Bell were the original members in the group when their first manager Brooke Payne added his nephew Ronny Devoe.

The group experienced their share of ups and downs over the years including them booting member Bobby Brown out of the group and later adding Johnny Gill, changing managers because of shady contracts, drug abuse, hitting rock bottom and coming back into success.

Bobby Brown went on to have a rather successful run as a solo artist selling more than 20 million albums.

Johnny Gill, and Ralph Tresvant both went solo after the group broke up in the late 1980s, with Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronny Devoe starting their own solo group Bell, Biv, Devoe.

They released a comeback album in 1996 entitled Home Again and their last album with Bad Boy Records in 2004 called "One Love."

In 2017 BET released a biopic on the group and later released a biopic on the life of Bobby Brown.

The legendary group would go on to release 8 studio albums (Including one Christmas album) selling over 10 million albums worldwide.

They recently signed an agreement with CAA who has announced a future Las Vegas Residency and a national tour.

Needless to say, they are all back!

Here are 11 songs made from New Edition you can't deny!
