“Let’s celebrate Juneteenth with a special edition #Verzuz! @AliciaKeys vs @JohnLegend on the 🎹‼️ Friday, June 19th | 8PM EST” -Verzuz’s Instagram
Last month, R&B veterans Erykah Badu and Jill Scott put together a memorable Verzuz battle. While the pair played some of their classics, they spent ample time showing each other salutes and appreciation.
The exciting event transformed from a battle to an evening of appreciation as Badu and Scott shared stories in between rounds and offered each other genuine praise. The livestream garnered around 700,000 viewers, including former First Lady Michelle Obama who tagged Barack Obama during Scott’s “Crown Royal.” (HYPEBEAST)
Wait, There’s More
In a recent interview, rap veteran DMX talked about possibly going face-to-face against music icon JAY-Z. Despite Young Hov having more than 10 albums to his name, X said he would take on his longtime pal.
Before You Go
This week, Alicia Keys shared a bunch of family pics. She credited her kids for showing off their camera skills.
“My lil munchkins took these pics! (Ok, not the one of them but you get it!! 🤣🤣) You should’ve seen them! Genesis, who’s 5, was so excited to be the leader (finally!) and the main photographer, but that camera was so big and heavy after a few clicks he was DONE! Good thing for his older brother Egypt being able to step in! That picture of me in the orange dress Egypt actually told me where to put my hand and body position!! (I bet he LOVED bossing me around for a little bit)” -Alicia Keys’ Instagram
