Tevin Campbell shares his opinion on who he believes will be the best person to face Usher in a Verzuz. After surprising fans during Usher’s residency in Las Vegas to perform his hit song “Can We Talk”, the singer was seen having a conversation about his opinions on Verzuz according to reports. “I just know that Usher is great, he’s a great artist. We can all be kings and be great at what we do and still co-exist as kings,” Campbell said. “There’s R.Kelly. I’m not saying anybody can beat [Usher] but R.Kelly has a lot of hits and he wrote all of them.” He continued, “When I think of an R&B artist who has had a lot of hits, I think of R.Kelly and not only his hits [but] he’s written for so many other people. I think that whole Verzuz thing is great but I just don’t believe in the competition.” Social media recently went crazy over the weekend after videos of Campbell joining Usher on stage surfaced.

I didn’t try to act a certain way or anything. You just couldn’t be [gay] back then,” he said. “Being around people who were like me, LGBTQ+ people that were living normal lives and had partners. I had never seen that. That was a great time in my life,” Campbell said. Do you agree with Tevin, that R.Kelly would be a better opponent for Usher in a Verzuz battle?
