Swizz Beats and Timbaland were the ones who originally suggested the two go head to head after they had their very own battle of the best.

Celebrities like Toni Braxton, Tyrese, Snoop Dogg and more were excited for the event that started 9 pm eastern time on Saturday night.

Babyface, who just got over Coronavirus showed up with a laptop and a phone while Teddy went with theatrics such as a background band, hype man, and even a dance routine.

After an hour of echoing and distracting noises on Riley’s end and hits played from Babyface’s location, social media users decided that Babyface won not only with the songs he played but because he didn’t try to put on a fancy show.

Riley’s camp told viewers at 10 pm they would be back at 1030. However, Babyface took to Instagram to suggest they do it another time.

‘I think that it’s only right that we postpone this thing until another time when there aren’t any technical difficulties, and everybody can hear the music the way it needs to be heard,’ he explained to disappointed fans.

After getting roasted on Twitter, Riley echoed the same sentiments.
