On Saturday, June 18, Verzuz revealed that they would be trying something new by pitting Omarion and Mario against one another. The announcement immediately sent their fans into a frenzy because both singers have dominated the scene. Streaming of the current event is available on YouTube, Triller, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. The event featured a pre-battle between Ray J and Bobby V. P & Sammie, please.
The event was slated to start at 6 p.m. in Los Angeles. PT/9 p.m. Mario and Omarion are pitting their enviable discographies against one another. Omarion has two albums with some hard-hitting songs, and Mario’s biggest hit was the 2004 single “Let Me Love You.” Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, the creators of this entertaining organization, began it back in 2020 and have hosted legends like Snoop Dogg and the late DMX, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Nelly and Ludacris, Method Man and Redman, Alicia Keys and John Legend, among many others.
Who will prevail in the Verzuz war, Omarion or Mario? This will be the fastest one yet, say the fans.
