Music artists, John Legend and Alicia Keys are expected to go head to head in an Instagram Live battle on Verzuz TV as part of an ongoing series during the current pandemic.

The popular Instagram series hopes to bring more artists to the platform as well as producers and writers to entertain fans whilst in quarantine. As to what we can expect from both the artists later this month, Verzuz stated that it’ll be largely piano focused, and with both Keys and Legend being professional pianists themselves, it won’t be an easy win for either.
