Credit for conceptualizing this hypothetical match-up goes to music mogul, L.A. Reid, who after being asked which would make the “perfect” matchup, suggested the two superstars, during a recent appearance on The Real,

“My ideal one, you really want this? It’s Mariah Carey versus Beyoncé. Bring that on!” Reid continued, “Come on, man. The fans that they both have, the hits they have, the legacy they have.”

“B’s the Queen, we know B’s the Queen, right?” Justifying his choice by noting, “Sometimes, Mariah might sometimes be slightly underrated for how long her career has lasted, how many hits she has and she practically owns Christmas. I think that’d be a good one."

While the hosts of the daytime talk show agreed that both chart-topping women would be the ultimate VERZUZ matchup, the internet, set ablaze by the mere suggestion, had other thoughts. Taking to Twitter with much to say about the matter.

Once again, we did the scrolling so you wouldn’t have to. Here are some of the best reactions that made us LOL, well actually chuckle, but you get the point.
