BABYFACE vs TEDDY RILEY

CYN

Hi guys so the first one I think took this one was baby face... love should've brought you home

Let's go one by one, who was your first pic cuz?

 

JUNIOR

Hahahaha what a jump the gun guy lol

 

CYN

I think ours is the same bro so dont worry but lets see lol, k maybe we go round 1 - baby face

 

JUNIOR

SWV-right here!! Teddy

 

CYN

oh nah..... hahaha

 

JUNIOR

Teddy yall lol

 

CAMZ

I went for SWV for the first one, it was a hard choice but I looked to popularity and how that song gets airplay on radio still and even at parties...so i've heard

this was a good round to start off....it sort of sets the theme of what's about to happen...Teddy the more dance floor type of music and Babyface the slow jam guy

 

JUNIOR

I went with what gets me moving 😏😏🤣🤣🤣

 

CAMZ

thats it uce haha.  I'm glad Teddy sorted his end out coz that first attempted live was straight fail....you'd think they in the game long enough they should know sound check?

 

CYN

Is that a males point of view you think? Hahahaha.  i mean right here is good however, when tonis song came on come on there's no comparison lol well thats 2 against 1 so Teddy wins this round so what you guys have for round 2?

 

BEE

Sorry... For me I looooove both songs.. Bit if I had to choose it would be swv right here.. It has more playtime in my list compared to love should bought you home from Toni.  But it's close!

 

CAMZ

yes real close...depends what mood you're in as well

 

CYN

auuu ka fefe ia mood lol


 

BEE

Do u have a link to the full playback of TvsB.  Need a refresher lol

 

CYN

i just looked on youtube for the actual song hahaha

 

BEE

Link?  Oh i made my playlist on spotify lol

 

CYN

oh share your spotify it's easier to do it that way as we go through the list

 

BEE

I got a different vibe from when they were playing it that arvo tho.. Lol  but all good!

 

CYN

yeah true

 

BEE

I'm just gonna say tho! I'm more of a babyface fan then teddy.. Lol  Before I listened to their battle

 

CYN

yeah for sure same here like Teddy but man Babyface is something else.  His sound is out of this world then just him being humble during the battle went with it

 

CAMZ

you guys didn't get into that new jack swing sound...late 80s early 90s?

 

BEE

Leai..😂😂😂😂

 

CYN

oh mate 90s makua 2pac loa hahaha

 

BEE

So which one we up to?  Round 2?

 

CYN

i went with teddy lol

 

CAMZ

yep me too

 

CYN

purely because i liked that song better than the baby face one tbh wasn't really familiar with that Babyface song


 

BEE

for some reason i thought swv right here was produced by Babyface lol

 

CYN

you know i thought that too, no idea it would be Teddy

 

CAMZ

Has Babyface ever sampled though?

 

CYN

mmm i think he may have

 

BEE

WAIT... see listening back to the battle... I changed my vote... yes i listen to swv right here quite often... But Toni's love shoulda brought you home made me move my head more..  So round one for me.. is Toni love shoulda brought you home.

 

CYN

Thank you lol you can see through my lens now hahaha

 

BEE

Sorry.. Round 1 - Babyface

 

CYN

I'm telling you it's babyface sounds its just so engaging

 

BEE

I was just going off top of my head of the songs side to side listening to the battle..  Babyface hands down on round one… for me tho!

 

CYN

YASSS!!!!

 

BEE

Babyfaces stories before each song tho!! Hahahaha.  i think it's better if you listen to the song as it should be to get a good vote

 

CYN

ya dont have to, Babyface has that effect.   Babyface story with Halle Berry and MJ? lol crackup...was that a diss to MJ?

 

BEE

BUT... if you're going off of the battle.. side to side point of views of each song... i dunno... it adds that extra oomph to it..  coz theres some history in there too LOL

 

CYN

exactly

 

BEE

we on round 2?

 

CYN

yep i went for teddy on this one lol

 

BEE

how do u want us to do it tho cam? i'll go with whatever?

 

CYN

only cuz i'm not familiar with that baby face song and there's no rule just chat whatever about the topic, and reply whenever i'll edit at the end before publishing.  

 

CAMZ

What's everyone's hardest round to pick?

 

CYN

Mine was the Bobby Brown vs Michael keep it in the closet but i went with Bobby Brown in the end which was a Babyface song

 

BEE

Round 2  - definitely Babyface soon as i get home - for the same reasons as since.. i'm not familiar with keith sweat's song

 

CYN

interesting lol but cool

 

BEE

Round 3 -  I know both songs but didn't get much playtime...but i'd have to go with Teddy  with Johnny Kemp I just got paid it's got more of a groovy dancing beat to it for me lol like a dancing in the kitchen type-a-song hahaha only coz this mumma dont party no more lol

 

CYN

same hahaha

 

BEE

All these songs making me wanna have a wine lol

 

CYN

oh no sorry im with babyface on this one, rocky steady coz it makes me move more lol

 

BEE

ok so this round... is hard...coz i love both.. Lol.  One fast and one slow so how can u choose?

 

CYN

I know me i'm listening


 

BEE

Can we have a tie? lol

 

CYN

i'm sure we can lol

 

BEE

Teddys having technical difficulties again lol better this time tho coz i can fast forward his freeze zones LOL...ok Round 5

 

CYN

Honestly that is makaga with all his pauses like not professional at all

 

BEE

i swear i was in FITS with the first live they attempted LOL

 

CYN

like babyface simple is always the way

 

BEE

Then all the videos that came out.. DEAD

 

CYN

OMG the first one i was like ia that's what ya get for having the whole band of america at yours haha like i'd rather do what babyface did or just went unplugged ya know.  i think he got too excited and to be honest man i would too i've went against babyface like....lol

 

BEE

unplugged would be harder coz they've produced so many different artists albums, it would sound different if they were to sing it LOL

 

CYN

omg the hype guy in the back was the funniest of it all

 

BEE

i wouldn't go against babyface unplugged.. he could outsing anyone what band was teddy in again.???  Was it blackstreet?

 

CYN

um nah older group

 

BEE

nah yeah it was blackstreet too was he in one earlier?

 

CYN

Blackstreet they all older hahahaha and you too hahahaha


 

BEE

se kefs i said blackstreet

 

CYN

majority of his songs i had no idea he produced

 

CAMZ

It was the group Guy Teddy was in With Aaron Hall

 

BEE

never heard of the group guy lol

 

CYN

My son and I watched a Blackstreet clip and he goes wow music clips back then were so dramatic lol they spent nearly 2mins talking before singing hahaha i said shhh they're acting...

 

BEE

Ok babyface just had to play the first few notes and i'm like BABYFACE won this round

 

ready or not with his brothers

 

CYN

Totally agree

 

Yep After 7 for sure

 

BEE

Round 6  - babyface with Bobby - you can't beat that song.. sorry Hi Five

 

That's a hard one

I went with teddy on this

 

Same reason why I chose swv...its one of those tracks djs still have in their set

 

BEE

i meant dont get me wrong.. i like that song from Hi five...

 

but bobby brown every little step i take.. that was a chart topper lol

 

in my books lol

 

Yep I agree with that too

 

CYN

Nah wasn't hard for me at all lol

 

CAMZ

but there can be only one (in highlander voice) 😆

 

BEE

I mean cyn still had her MC Hammer pants dancing to Bobby Brown

 

CYN

Billa

CYN

BEE

Tevin Campbell for round 7 no competition

 

CYN

yep hands down

 

BEE

round 8 - ok not familiar with either of these songs lol but i dig karens

 

CYN

Yep I’m with Karen


 

BEE

round 9 - Tevin Campbell....I like both but Tevin was played so many more times in my house lol

 

CYN

Tevin for me too

 

LISA

I'm here!!  Are we round 9?  I vote Tevin for round 9 as well.  I literally grew up listening to Tevin alot because of you two so I'm a big fan 

 

BEE

Ok round 10... u know what's funny... I kinda like Teddys song now after the first battle hahaha that drum beat will always kill me but round 10 ... one of my favorites.. babyface with two occasions hi Lisa!

 

LISA

Hi guys! Sorry I'm late to the chat 🤦‍♂️ Round 10 - Didn't Teddy start with Slick Rick on the first live that was a fail 😂 The only knew of the beginning of Slick Rick - The Show cause Missy Elliot samples it in her song Shake your Pom Pom. Otherwise I only have never heard of Slick Rick.  Round 10 for me would have to go to Face with Two Occasions. Love that song.

 

BEE

Hahaha funny I've never heard it before and now all I know is that first beat in so the mock videos

 

LISA

Now when I hear that Slick Rick song just reminds me of his hype man 😂

 

BEE

Ok round 11

 

LISA

Cyn what about you? Too busy dancing to Slick Rick or? Hahaha who do you go with in Round 10?

 

BEE

😂😂😂😂 She's keva'd off after the MC hammer pants comment hahaha

 

CYN

Aye I’m at liquor store lol

 

BEE

😂😂😂😂😂She needed some wine!  So round 11 it's definitely Bobby Brown rock wit'cha

 

LISA

Yup! I feel you on that. Rock Witcha is classic. Such a Babyface song, you can hear his influence all over it.  Man just the way babyface held himself throughout both times they went live. He so smooth everytime he talks 😍 and humble however the subtle shade he was throwing at Teddy had me 💀💀

 

CYN

Two occasions no doubt this is ur karaoke song Lisa lol

LISA

Yooo you know me! Lol

 

CYN

😂🤣 Exactly what I said earlier, and yep, Rock Witcha over Jay Z  Where we up to now lol

 

LISA

Round 12 now

 

CYN

U must’ve been watching me when I use to sing with my hair brush lol Hahahaha Okay lol This was hard for me Coz I luv both

 

LISA

I vote Babyface Round 12 - I gotta go with Light skin Michael with Naomi Campbell

 

CYN

i'm gonna go with Bobby Brown on this one

 

LISA

I meeeaaaan..... SOMETHING ABOUT YOU BABY!! THAT'S MAKES ME WANT TO GIVE IT TO YOOOOUUUU..Unfortunately I don't know that Bobby Brown song 😏

 

CYN

Oh it was the song to Ghostbusters 2

 

BEE

I'm going with keep it in the closet!!!  can't go wrong with that one

 

CYN

Blackstreet

 

LISA

ROUND 13!!!! IT'S A GOOD ONE!

 

CYN

BEE

CYN

OMG this is difficult lol eek

 

LISA

Teddy - Blackstreet before i let you go or Babyface - how dare this man come out and sang when will I see you on the gat 😭

 

Billa

LMFAO

 

LISA

Teddy wasn't having it when he pulled out the gat 😂 Backstreet for me

 

BEE

dont worry Teddy came back with his keys tho

 

LISA

Oooo I got Tie bro. I can decide.

 

BEE

LISA

BEE

I swayed more to Babyface ... because he pulled out the gat!  babyface can do NO wrong with his gat I've played that song more times than when I see you

BEE

LISA

I gotta go with Bobby Brown before Whitney and the Crack. I don't know the other song lol but don't be cruel reminds me of both of you

 

BEE

LMAO whyyyyy? u sure its not just cyn? lol

 

LISA

Dead.. This whole time I thought he was singing 'I DON'T NEED YOU' 😂 not 'Don't Be Cruel'

 

BEE

you're just as bad as rob LOL

 

LISA

😂😂

 

BEE

K we on round 15 now?

 

LISA

That was Round 15 - The last Round

 

BEE

Wait.. Round 15 is black street - deep and Johnny Gill my my my Where'd you get don't be cruel? Lol I'm just looking at the list now

 

LISA

Oh oops I think I got the wrong list 😂

LISA

Nah I used the old list I didn't realise lol Yup got the correct list now.  Alright Round 15 gotta go with my man Johnny Gill!

 

BEE

I'm also Johnny gill  That's a classic

 

CYN

Okay, I'm back.  Johnny gill for sure….#16 for me is TLC - Red light special

 

CAMZ

20 minutes left, any last words?  Well I've got Love Shoulda Brought you Home on repeat haha such a mean song...im gonna take round one back from Teddy and give it to Babyface.  There's a part in the song, it's like a pre-chorus...happens after each verse....so smooth, that's my favourite part

 

LISA

I missed that first vote. Definitely would've picked my girl Toni with Love Shoulda Brought You Home

 

CAMZ

Teddy came out the gates with a banger tho..can't go wrong with SWV but I think teddy couldn't keep up after that...there were a few gems like Foxy Brown, then HiFive and Heavy D and the boyz lol

 

JUNIOR

Babyface the winner hands down 💯

 

CYN

NAH too late cam lol.....yes overall babyface is the champ without a doubt!!! totally different producers but babyface is just king of r&b 

 

LISA

Overall I think it was a good battle in the end. Even with all the technical difficulties. They made everyone laugh and 2 legends raking up almost 500k views on Insta! Epic. Babyface to me won that battle hands-down.  I'm looking forward to looking up what other songs Teddy produced, maybe he needed to re-look at his playlist.  

 

CAMZ

What was a song everyone went wtf?  Mine was Blackstreet Deep because it was up against Johnny Gill My My My lol umm no chance lol

 

LISA

Yup I agree. And a lot of people were commenting NEXT 😂

 

CAMZ

round 3 was another wtf lol....johnny kemp I just got paid vs Rock Steady??....

 

LISA

My wtf song was when he played Slick Rick, just because I will never be able to listen to that song now without remembering him and his hype man going hundys while we sitting here tryna figure out what song he was playing 😂 YOU HAD A WHOLE WEEK TO PREPARE TEDDY.

 

CAMZ

Hahaha ok for me when babyface played Rock Witcha........it was game over, pack ya bags .....going home lol

 

CYN

yep agree a few gems but that's it HAHAHA...i also hate that song deep lol when he played toni braxtons  i got chills...signing off lol thanks fam for participating

 

LISA

Good Convo fams! ❤️

 

CYN

Bee your fav song was rump shaker aye xx goodnight lol
