Mariah Carey is sounding off on the possibility of a Verzuz battle with another icon of similar status, Beyoncé.

There's no doubt, Beyoncé and Mariah rule the world of music. Their super-successful careers and mind-blowing voices are indeed proof of this. Hence, it comes as no surprise that fans want to see the two powerhouses go head-to-head in a Verzuz battle.

While that will undoubtedly go down as one of the most historic Verzuz battles, there's a high chance it won't ever happen, at least according to Mariah.

During an interview with E! News, the "Touch My Body" singer was asked about the possibility of having a Verzuz with Queen B.

Mariah wasted no time in praising Beyoncé and declaring her love for Bey. She said, "I love Beyoncé and I admire her so much as a performer for what she's done for the world and everything else."

However, on the subject of challenging Beyoncé to a Verzuz battle, it's a resounding no for Mariah. The mother-of-two took a humble stance on the subject as she said:

I’d be disrespecting myself and I’m not going to do that because it’s Christmas time.

It seems fans won't be getting the Verzuz battle they so desire anytime soon! But, maybe Beyoncé would grant our heart desires!
