Created by legendary hip-hop producers Timbaland and Keys’ husband Swizz Beatz to combat the boredom of staying at home due to coronavirus, this “Verzuz” battle will celebrate Juneteenth, the day slavery ended in America. It also marks the first co-ed artist competition as part of the popular IG Live showcase.
And this time around, Keys and Legend’s musical square off tomorrow evening seems to be set up in the same room, as VerzuzTV’s latest Instagram today (June 18) shows Keys’ hot pink grand piano facing away from Legend’s piano.
But this “Verzuz battle” calls for another celebration right after: DJ D-Nice will be spinning for his 50th birthday tomorrow on his Instagram account for the official online after party.
Tune in here, Friday, June 19 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
