John Legend and Alicia Keys will face off in a special edition of Verzuz celebrating Juneteenth on Friday.
The latest installment of the popular Instagram Live series will be a “battle of the pianos,” Legend tweeted. His seventh studio album, Bigger Love, is set to drop on the same day.
The musicians go head to head starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on the Verzuz Instagram page.
Previous Verzuz battles have included rappers T-Pain and Lil Jon, Ludacris and Nelly, and singers Babyface and Teddy Riley.
The Verzuz battle series was created by Alicia’s husband Swizz Beatz and Timbaland.
