Battle of the Pianos: Alicia Keys and John Legend on Verzuz

American singers Alicia Keys and John Legend are set to face-off for the latest Verzuz Battle this Friday (19.06.20).

Created by producers Timbaland and Keys’ husband Swizz Beatz at the beginning of this year’s quarantine, the Instagram Live series has seen R&B and hip-hop stars play some of their best tracks from each of their respective accounts.

Evenly matched in regards to their music era, style, or audience, the artists trade off playing 20 songs (oftentimes more) from their extensive repertoire in an effort to “best” the other.

While it’s officially a competition, oftentimes for the thousands of fans who tune-in, it’s simply a nostalgic and joyful escape that results in multiple trending topics on Twitter.

Keys and Legend are an especially even-matched pair, as they both got their industry start in the early 2000s, are classically trained on the piano, have a combined 26 Grammys, and specialize in soulful and inspiring R&B ballads.

Keys is expected to sing her top hits including, Fallin, Girl on Fire and No One while Legend is expected to delight fans with All of me, Tonight and Love me now.
