Who will win between Omarion and Mario?
Omarion and Mario are both iconic R&B singers and they both enjoy their own fan following. Omarion, whose real name is Omari Ishmael Grandberry, has four solo studio albums to his name along with three collaboration albums. For the Verzuz face-off, Omarion is expected to belt out his hit singles like ‘Bump, Bump, Bump’, ‘Uh Huh’, ‘Girlfriend’, and ‘Ice Box’ among other numbers.
Mario, on the other hand, will also put his best foot forward with his club bangers. The 35-year-old crooner got five solo studio albums to his name and thus he got plenty of numbers to perform on. Mario will try to win the battle with his hit singles like ‘Just a Friend 2002’, ‘Let Me Love You’, ‘How Do I Breathe’, ‘Crying Out for Me’ and ‘Music for Love’ among a few others.
