The Sweat Hotel is making its way to New Orleans this week as our night guy Keith Sweat and the King of R&B Bobby Brown perform a live Verzuz this week in New Orleans at the 2021 Essence Festival.


Thursday, July 1 the two of the biggest names in R&B who have hits spanning decades will face off created by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. I don't know about you, but I think this is going to be a tie. It will be interesting to watch because I am curious to see if Bobby Brown will do the Every Little Step dance moves and if Keith Sweat will be on stage doing the old man dance. You know the one that your uncle does at every fish fry and cookout.

Both have had great moments and terrible moments on stage and that could another Verzuz on its own. Remember that time Keith Sweat was performing at an awards show and he cracked all kinds of notes. I hope this doesn't happen again and it shouldn't with the audio technology they have out now. Nothing can top Bobby Brown's perform when his bag of crack fell out of his pocket while performing on stage. You don't believe me? Check it out below.

Those were funny and embarrassing moments that both men recovered from effortlessly. I am looking forward to them making history singing some of my favorites. If I had to pick 20 from each singer, my list would look something like this:
