Verzuz: Erykah Badu faces Jill Scott in epic ‘earthies’ battle
The soul of music will find its balance and chakras will align when Erykah Badu tunes into her Instagram Live to face her soul sister Jill Scott on the upcoming Verzuz series.
Verzuz battle returns: Erykah Badu faces Jill Scott
This is the first time we will be seeing women feature in what has been an epic music event thus far.
The last time we encountered an unfathomed level of greatness of this magnitude was a few weeks ago when Babyface returned to teach his protege Teddy Riley a lesson or two about pure artistry.
Take nothing away from Riley, though. The man is responsible for an entire subgenre (New Jack Swing) but in a contest against the incomparable Kenneth Edmonds, he did not stand a chance.
This week’s match-up sees two earth sisters who are renowned for their soothing voices. Their music is regarded as a proven remedy to cleanse woke women from the toxins of trashy men.
What time is the battle?
Consequently, it comes as no surprise that Instagram will be littered with wokeness by the time Badu goes Live with Scott.
As per the norm, the Verzuz battle is expected to kick off on Saturday night at 19:00 EST. Since we are reporting from South Africa, the battle will be live on Sunday morning at 01:00 in our hemisphere.
Who will win, Erykah Badu or Jill Scott?
Don’t ask us to pick a winner in this battle. The outcome is really irrelevant. There is no way to pit a goddess against another, both equally enchanting and spiritual and flawless to a fault.
This time around, it really ought to be taken literally when we say it is for the culture.
Take a look at how Erykah Badu and Jill Scott have been preparing for the epic encounter.
