    From Cydney Henderson of USA TODAY

    Without further ado: Kenny "Babyface” Edmonds and Teddy Riley's Instagram Live battle.

    After the R&B producers' first attempt at their much-hyped battle was derailed by audio issues over the weekend, Edmonds and Riley didn't miss a beat during their rematch Monday.

    More than 500,000 people tuned in to watch the legendary producers' head-to-head battle of their extensive discographies, including the hits My, My, My by Johnny Gill (produced by Babyface) and Guy's Let's Chill (produced by Riley).

    Despite the friendly competition, the producers were complimentary of one another.

    "You are the king. You brought New Jack Swing to us all. You brought a movement," Edmonds told Riley, who is credited with the creation of the fusion genre in the ’80s and ’90s. "I'm honored to be in here with you, man."

    "You inspired me," Riley replied. Edmonds said they "keep each other on our toes."

    The scales appeared to lean in Edmonds' favor when he performed a live acoustic version of When Can I See You Again on his guitar.

    "Kenny brought out the guitar...oh I love it," tweeted Toni Braxton, whose hit songs Another Sad Love Song and You're Making Me High (both produced by Edmonds) appeared in the hits lineup.

    But everyone collectively agreed that viewers were the ultimate winners, after the two music producers brought hundreds of thousands of fans together with music while social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    "Congrats to both! So much talent! This elevated my mood! Love to @KennyEdmonds and @TeddyRiley1 y’all were groovin,'" Braxton added.

    "We all won tonight witnessing @KennyEdmonds and @TeddyRiley1 go back and forth with pure greatness," Bruno Mars tweeted.

    Here's a list of all the hits played during the battle:

    Riley and Edmonds first battled it out on Saturday, but sound and technical issues plagued the friendly bout. Riley appeared to prepare more for a concert, with a set-up that led to echoing and playback.

    After about an hour of troubleshooting, the duo agreed to try again another time.

    Monday's battle wasn't free from technical difficulties, either. Riley's screen appeared to freeze several times before his connection was lost. Riley and Edmonds finished the battle separately on their own Instagram feeds.

    "Everybody, please stay safe," Edmonds said as he signed off. "Social distancing is important and we will catch you guys another time. Love you, take care everybody."

    Earlier this month, Edmonds revealed that he and his family were diagnosed with COVID-19 and are recovering.

    "I’m happy to report we have now tested negative and are on our way back to full health," he wrote on April 10, his 62nd birthday.
