Instagram Live Battles have become the newest form of music entertainment for people all over the world as we practice social distancing during Covid-19. Recently we have seen battles from Babyface vs. Teddy Riley, Mannie Fresh vs. Scott Storch, The Dream vs. Sean Garrett, and of course the originators, Swizz Beats and Timbaland. These battles have been instrumental in re-educating the masses on the producers behind many Billboard chart-topping hits, who have made an impact in Hip-Hop/R&B and popular music, called The Verzuz Effect.
Just hours ago, Swizz Beats announced that Jill Scott and Erykah Badu would be joining the Verzuz Series, on Saturday, May 9th. This edition of celebrity Instagram battles is sponsored by Femme It Forward, an entertainment platform that spotlights the entertainment industry’s visionaries, on stage, and behind the scenes!
