This isn’t the first time that Ms. Badu has given her fans a virtual concert. She’s continued to deliver a set from her bedroom quarantine concert series on Instagram, charging one dollar during the pandemic.

Producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland started the IG live battles to give music lovers isolating at home during the COVID-19 crisis a little entertainment.

Previous battles include Teddy Riley vs Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and T-Pain vs Lil Jon.

The battle between producers Riley and Babyface drew more than a half million people. The Verzuz IG battles have become so popular that they’ve reportedly caught the attention of television networks, but so far the creators say they have no plans to take the shows offline.

The battle between Erykah Badu and Jill Scott takes place on Instagram live May 9 at 7 pm EST.
