Chris Brown Declines Usher #Verzuz Battle: “I Could Do Vs On Features Alone”

Published: Monday 27th Jul 2020 by Sam

Social media was on fire this weekend with debate about who would win a #Verzuz battle between R&B titans Usher and Chris Brown.

So heated was the discourse that both artists trended all day on Twitter.

And while such stan spars tend to result in the actualisation of the battle, that won’t be the case here – says C. Breezy.

Full story below…

Taking to his Instagram Stories, Brown said

“What we not gone do is CAP.
I could do a vs off features alone…
So I’ll humbly decline…
I’m busy doing nothing”

Things that make you go hmm.

Who do you think would win?!

    He declined because he know his music has been sounding the same for years. The same repeated shît without any signs of artistic growth.

    • Fancy BISH July 27, 2020

      Chris is out of his mind. I was talking to a group of people yesterday about this. All of them various ages, and all said maybe Chris Brown is current right now, but most couldn’t name more than 2 or 3 songs.

      Whereas they were able to name many Usher records including album tracks from Confessions.

      Billboard ranks Usher #23 of all-time.

      Chris Brown is #94 with ten albums.. even Bruno Mars is already #41 on all-time with just 3 albums.

      #1 albums on billboard 200

      Usher 4 out of 9
      Chris Brown 3 out of 10

      #1 single so on Hot 100

      Usher 9
      Chris Brown 2

      #1 albums in the UK

      Usher 3
      Chris Brown 1

      #1 singles in the UK

      Usher 4
      Chris Brown 2

      Grammy Awards

      Usher 8
      Chris Brown 1

      American Music Awards

      Usher 8
      Chris Brown 4

      Billboard Awards

      Usher 18
      Chris Brown 4

      RIAA/soundscan certified albums

      Usher 24 million out of 8 albums
      Chris Brown 14.5 million out of 10 albums

      Don’t compare Chris to USHER lol

      • FK those tacky af Yeezy 4 taking my tax $ July 27, 2020

        chile this receipt is longer than all my cvs receipts combined

      • king c July 27, 2020

        This is all facts. And on the Greatest Hot 100 artists of all time list Usher is at 14. Yes top 15 EVER while Chris Brown was at like 94. They don’t compare. Even Don’t Waste My Time washing some of CB’s songs

    • FK those tacky af Yeezy 4 taking my tax $ July 27, 2020

      no lies detected at all and MIGHT I ADD- not only does his music sound like the same stagnant s***, but I’m tired of fools dropping a million and a half mediocre at tracks on eps just to up they streaming. Michael Jackson new quality > substance… Chris breezy need to take his female beating ass away from what little limelight still shines on him cuz Bey been snatched his opportunity at MJ level stardom and that s*** ain’t ever returning. FAME AINT A BOOMERANG NI66A

      • Fancy BISH July 27, 2020

        SCREAMING 😂 ✅ 💯

  2. Let’s Get Close July 27, 2020

    In my culture we have a saying. If you bend down and give yourself to a child don’t be surprised if it slaps you. Usher has cheapened himself so much that Chris Backflip thinks he is too good to even compete with him in a friendly battle even though he’s been making the same song for the last ten years. Now you see why Beyonce and Nicki keep a respectable distance from the new girls.

    • Let’s Get Close July 27, 2020

      *give your face.

    • Clarks0o0ñ July 27, 2020

      Usher has really lowered himself, even the weeknd was dragging him some few weeks ago and he actually responded. What a dumb àss.

    • king c July 27, 2020

      This is all the way wrong lmao. Usher even declined this battle within seconds MONTHS ago on Swizz’s IG Live so there wasn’t even anything FOR Chris to decline

  3. Hey hey July 27, 2020

    Now do you see why Nicki is cautious about getting too familiar with her sons? Now do you see why Bey rarely shout outs her younger competition? As soon as you give these brats a little bit of shine they forget their place and think you’re on the same level. Backflip could put all of his albums together and they still wouldn’t match Confessions’ sales. For me, I blame Usher. He is too immature to realise that Scooter, Justin and Backflip wouldn’t be where they are if it wasn’t for him. Yet because he hasn’t asserted his dominance or pushed the envelope creatively they now think they’re better than him. Can you imagine?! Who could have seen the day where the actual Usher was on a management company where the little white boy he helped to develop has more power than he does. The fact that Chris thinks that any of his songs or features are on the same level
    As U Remind Me or You Make Me Wanna is proof that these dudes look at Usher like he’s a joke. Drake would never let this happen.

    • Crazy_sexy_cool July 27, 2020


      • Karma July 27, 2020

        Exactly! Don’t put Nicki and Beyoncé in the same sentence, and I’m not even a hive.

  4. TT July 27, 2020

    These “new” guys have been clowning Usher left right and centre recently. It’s time for him to grow some balls and remind them who he is.

    • July 27, 2020

      Usher dis Nicki for no reason and I do thing Nicki and Chris are cool so.

  5. tyty July 27, 2020

    Must be crack cause I know Chris is not delusional enough to think him and usher are on the same level then again yall gassed him up to think he was Mj son and look what happened just cause he can do a good back flip.

    • Lindsay July 27, 2020

      No shade but I feel
      Like the only people who love Chris Brown and think he’s legendary are the same kinds of people who wear 100 dollar sneakers but eat Cheetos for breakfast. Dysfunction all over the place. Chris can dance but he’s not a skilled or technical dancer in the way Janet is for example. What makes MJ, Bey, Janet and Britney iconic is that storytelling was just as important as performance and that they studied different styles to tell those stories. It’s cute but what can Chris do beyond street dance, body rolls and back flips. He would link to think he is the party boy of black music but even the old school party boys (Bobby, Montell Jordan) were giving you vocals as they told you how they were going to take your girl. Chris couldn’t hold a note even if the CRACKPIPE he smokes out of was attached to it. The nerve.

      • tyty July 27, 2020

        This!! Chris was coddled and told he was the new Mj from jump and that inflated his ego when his no better than your average street dancer. Don’t get me wrong his talent could have been cultivated he had potential. But he does not hold a candle to usher at all.

      • Fancy BISH July 27, 2020

        How did I miss this? SCREAMING and HOLLERING 🤣 ✅ ✅ 💯

      • king c July 27, 2020

        THIS!!! I hate how Chirs Brown fans try to put him on Usher, Beyonce, and MJ’s level when he isn’t even top among his peers. He’s barely even a icon. Ask somebody to name 5 Chris Brown songs, a random person and they can’t. For MJ, yes. Beyonce, probably, much more than Chris, I’d say yes. Usher, yes too. Where’s Chris’ iconic albums? Iconic tours? Classic singles? He has none of them Just backflips. I love how most people arguing on Twitter were on Usher’s side and just making fun of the CB stans cuz they deserved it

    • Clarks0o0ñ July 27, 2020

      The same way you guys gas normani up as the new beyonce just because she can twèrk and do a cartwheel .
      Now flopmani thinks she’s the new beyonce


      • Lindsay July 27, 2020

        Please stop. People want Normani to carry the torch Beyoncé and Mya lit before her. No one thinks she’s as good as Bey we just believe in her and have high hopes.

      • tyty July 27, 2020

        Your obsession with Normani is so boring you’re the only one who is pressed like a panini over her you’re literally her biggest fan in this blog. Absolutely nobody said Normani was the next Beyoncé what they did say was that performance art wasn’t lost and someone like Normani can carry on the torch once Beyoncé started.

      • Clarks0o0ñ July 27, 2020

        Carry what torche?

        Beyonce will be the one to pick the artist who will carry on her legacy and it is NOT flopmani who cant sing or write songs.

      • FK those tacky af Yeezy 4 taking my tax $ July 27, 2020

        yall swear normals talent is as high as her worn out ponytail quick weave

    • Justmeeeee July 27, 2020

      I’m noticing a pattern.
      All of the artist that are declining Versuz battles are afraid of “Losing” because the other artist has MORE hit songs

      50 cent turned down Ja Rule

      Monica turned down brandy

      Now Chris brown turns down usher

      Why not just let the fans enjoy all of the music and be a good sport. ???

      Did Eryka Badu ever do herd with Gill Scott?
      If so, i missed it

      I hear that Keisha Cole has offered to do a Versuz with Ashanti.
      I hope that they do it.

      • Justmeeeee July 27, 2020

        Also meant to add that Dru hill turned down Jagged Edge.
        Both groups had a large Fan base.
        I love both
        But love Jagged Edge more…

      • king c July 27, 2020

        Usher declined the battle back in April or May Swizz asked him on his live to battle Chris and he flat out said no, immediately lol. There wasn’t anything for Chris to decline in the first place. So delusional of him to think he’s winning off of features. His career is CARRIED by features. That’s why he hasn’t had a solo hit since 2012, only 7 years into his career while Usher was having solo hits up to 2012 but was having them back since 1993, a whole 20 years in. His delusion..MUST be the coke lmao

      • Justmeeeee July 28, 2020

        Pressed to respond BUT you did not negate my point because either way Chris brown was asked and HE declined…facts

  6. Neon July 27, 2020

    What’s CAP?

  7. Chez K July 27, 2020

    When confidence becomes delusion…

    I couldn’t even name 5 CB features. Most were hooks on forgettable rap singles.

    CB does have the range to compete with Usher in anything.

    His vocals are strained and auto tuned. His music is repetitive. His stats are smoke and mirrors.

    Usher may not be churning out hits like he was in days past but he still has more HITS than CB.

    Usher has 9 #1’s. 18 top 10’s.

    CB #1’s. 15 top 10’s.

    I won’t even get into album sales. It’s a losing battle for CB.

    Confessions alone obliterates Chris Browns entire catalog.

    • king c July 27, 2020

      It takes CB’s top 3 best selling albums to reach the sales of Usher’s My Way…think about that lol Usher has outsold him easily. He’s sold 75 million albums while Chris has sold like 20…? If that?

  8. Pearl July 27, 2020

    I love them both but I definitely think Chris brown would win no doubt

    • Karma July 27, 2020

      You’re a child if you think that. Go back to sleep baby

    Everything is generational and passed down. Before there was Missy Elliott, there was Queen Latifa, before there was Destiny’s Child, there was TLC, before there was Sean Paul, there was Shaggy. Before Chris brown, there was Usher. These artists have a direct musical lineage to artists that came before them, but they each have their individual lane.

    We have to give credit to Chris, in that when you think of current R&B male artists, he’s someone you never forget about. Arguably, this feat is even bigger considering the fact that his career was pretty much over about 10 years ago, and no one wanted to face the stigma of working with him. But he steadily worked his tail off and stayed relevant. Usher had the spotlight for years, decades even, but at some point, you have to be able to take a look at those who he opened the door for and what they’ve accomplished.

    I think of people like Montell Jordan, Case , Chico Debarge, D’Angelo, Mario, Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank. All these artists were major artists back during the time when Usher was in his hay-day, but where are they now? A lot of these artists weren’t able to keep up with the changing landscape of music at the time.

    Chris has consistently kept his name out there for 15 years and shows no sign of stopping. He’s booked and busy probably working on new music. In terms who would “win” the battle, I don’t think there needs to be a “winner”, as I think this would have been monumental for contemporary R&B in general. People forget that in the early 2000s, R&B was such a dominant genre. That being said, Chris would have a lot to showcase if this battle went down. “No Guidance”, “Run It”, “Yo (Excuse Me Miss)”, “With You”, “Forever”, “Loyal”, “Beautiful People”, “Kiss Kiss”, “Deuces”, “Look At Me Now”, “Fine China” were all moments when they got released.

    • king c July 27, 2020

      But he’s NOWHERE near Usher’s level and that’s a fact

      what is he gonna play when Usher hits Yeah?
      what about Nice & Slow? cuz Take You Down losing that battle
      U Don’t Have to Call?
      Good Kisser?
      Trading Places?
      Twork It Out?

      It’s literally a 20-0 win for Usher and that’s still the case if he takes it easy

  10. The Bag 💰 July 27, 2020

    Chris must be back on that s***?!!!…I mean what you do is cute or whatever, however, like the kids been saying for sometime now…your s*** is redundant and where you could have grown musically you just chose to simply plateau and be satisfied with the mediocre s*** that you keep pushing out. So much so, that you have started this tired ass trend of having these lengthy ass albums that nobody is going to sit there and go through because it!s simply too much. Usher should have gathered your thoughts for the disrespect. Because honestly, @ this point, you could possibly NEVER think that you could come for Usher’s position and think you was gon slay the house down boots?!!! You’d better leave that Tina alone! I will admit, you were on to something with “Exclusive”, however your music has gone to s*** since then…

  11. Hated July 27, 2020

    Usher should be doing it with Justin Timberlake

  12. i hate bllaccck nn whhyyttee July 27, 2020

    this stupid show is beneath USHER…

    • king c July 27, 2020

      He’d be doing charity work for them

  13. Lol July 27, 2020

    He knows he’d lose. He doesn’t have the range.

  14. S T E E Z Y ⚡️ July 27, 2020

    Chris Brown is

  15. Misty Knight July 27, 2020

    Chris Brown beats iconic women and leaves them by the side of the road. He’s gutter trash that should be in jail for life. He’s not, because that’s how we people feel about black women. We are not worth anything to them.

  16. king c July 27, 2020

    Chris Brown: “What we not gone do is CAP”

    Chris Brown: proceeds to cap by thinking

    1) he could actually be put in the same breath as Usher
    2) he has legendary features

    His career is literally CARRIED by features. He hasn’t had a high charting solo hit since 2012, only 7 years into his career. Usher did in 2012, but that was literally 20 years into his career. Usher’s classic and iconic hits have gotten even bigger over time and are classics. They have proven to stand the test of time as these newer artists are sampling them left and right and getting big hits from it too. CB’s songs stay in the yea or era they were released. Even Usher’s deep cuts like Twork It Out, SUperstar, Bedtime, Mars vs Venus, Tell Me are R&B classics that CB can’t compete with. The delusion smh

  17. S T E E Z Y ⚡️ July 27, 2020

    Chris Brown is the biggest male R&B artist of his generation. None of his contemporaries have reached the heights he has reached, not even Trey. But statements like this makes him look insecure as an artist. There is nothing wrong with pay homage to someone that influenced you as an artist. Like many other young male r&b artists, there would be no him without Usher. He’s stated that twice on Vibe Magazine that he was inspired by Usher, everyone and their mamas know that he is a product of Usher. It’s obvious with his sound, style, dance moves and image. It’s the same way Usher is a product of MJ & Bobby Brown. That doesn’t mean he’s not a legend or he hasn’t influenced others. Usher was the biggest male R&B male artist of his time as well and he achieved much more heights than Chris did in his time. At some point, the man literally became biggest artist in music. At the end of day, Chris Brown just benefitted from a blueprint that was laid by, MJ, Usher, R.Kelly and Bobby Brown so he should be thankful that he’s in the position to be mentioned in the same breath as Usher.

  18. Connie July 27, 2020

    Love it crazy for you Chris br crazy gypsy girl usher gimmy same of both ur love in the club my town Wichita Ks

  19. Annese Denise Deet July 27, 2020

    I think they both are great artists I love both of there music and it’s good they are working togethers so keep it up Chris and Usher may God continue to bless you both.

  20. Cann_ed_pea_ches July 28, 2020

    Y’all are just hating on Chris because y’all know that he has the potential to be just as good as Usher.
    You can’t compare a legend to a legend in the making, just like how you can’t compare Usher andChris

  21. Broski 🔥 July 29, 2020

    Keeping it 💯, there’s no denying that Chris Brown has been the the top male R&B artist for the past decade. He’s a great entertainer, He’s achieved top 10 hits in 3 decades (00s,10s,20s) and is heavily played on radio which is very impressive with everything he’s been through. But in all sincerity , he would not be the artist or entertainer he is if it wasn’t for Usher. Usher laid a foundation that CB career benefited off. Chris just needs to respect himself and the man who inspired him to be an artist. There would be no Chris Brown, without Usher.
