Many were quite disappointed when the highly-anticipated Instagram live battle between Babyface and Teddy Riley didn’t happen as scheduled. Well now, Babyface has provided an update that fans can look forward to—while also revealing his recent struggle with coronavirus.
When the legendary Instagram live battle between Babyface and Teddy Riley was cancelled at the last minute, fans were absolutely devastated that the long-awaited showdown between the two musical greats wasn’t happening.
Previously, Teddy explained that one of the reasons that the battle was postponed was because they were trying to figure out ways around the one-hour live limit that Instagram has. He said, “We really want this done right, and we don’t want the stops from Instagram.”
Well as he celebrates his 62nd birthday, Babyface has finally explained why things were postponed and offered a shocking confession about his health:
“I would like to warmly thank everyone for all the many birthday wishes today. I feel so blessed to be able to celebrate another birthday. I tested positive for Covid19 virus, as did my family. It’s an incredibly scary thing to go through my friends. I’m happy to report we have now tested negative and are on our way back to full health.
With that being said… I would like to officially accept the invitation from the legendary Swizz Beatz & Timbaland to participate with my little brother, Teddy Riley in what I’d like to call a Celebration of Black Music Excellence in — Teddy vs. Babyface…So get ready for a night of groove and love. Ladies… put on your red dress… light the candles, pour some wine, and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes. Teddy!!! Let’s show them what Hip Hop/R&B music really means to the world!”
Babyface then announced the new date for the battle, which is April 18th at 6PM PST/9PM EST on Instagram. We can’t wait!
