The Instagram Live battle last night between Babyface and Teddy Riley may have been doomed from the start. The battle, organized by Swizz Beatz, had already been postponed from April 12 due to Babyface’s COVID-19 diagnosis. When the two started their rescheduled battle last night, they were almost immediately affected by technical problems. An audience of over 400,000 spectators then watched with admiration and confusion as two of the most legendary R&B figures struggled to solve basic audio problems.
Riley, having misunderstood the mission, had set up some sort of home concert scene that provoked audio playback and echo – Swizz Beatz commented later that Riley was doing too much and that “less is more” when it comes to Instagram battles. Although the two tried to resolve and resolve the noise issues, the event was ultimately canceled. The live broadcast lasted about an hour before Babyface announced that the battle would be postponed once again, saying, “I think it’s only fair that we postpone this thing until another time when it doesn’t There are no technical difficulties, and everyone can hear the music as it should be heard.
And Twitter had jokes, of course. Notably, Toni Braxton tweeted live for part of the live stream and was not impressed. Other famous faces have appeared in Instagram Live comments, including Tyrese and Adele, who commented “Come on, it’s 2020, we’re not supposed to get what we want. Well said, Adele.
