'Verzuz': Alicia Keys & John Legend to Face Off in Juneteenth Battle

R&B superstars Alicia Keys and John Legend will face off in a Verzuz battle on June 19.

“Let’s celebrate Juneteenth with a special edition #Verzuz! @AliciaKeys vs @JohnLegend,” the popular online battle series announced Saturday (June 13) on Instagram.

The Verzuz Instagram battle series — co-helmed at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic by legendary hip-hop producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland — has seen showdowns between such all-stars as Nelly and Ludacris, Lil Jon and T-Pain, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu and many more.

Starting as a 20-song showdown between evenly matched producers, the series has also come to encompass writers and now performers, as hip-hop and R&B fans have been glued to their IG feeds on countless weekend nights to watch the drama and bangers unfold.

Rest assured, the battle between Keys and Legend will have no shortage of hits.
