This Sunday, Empress of Soul Gladys Knight will go head to head with Patti LaBelle, the Godmother of Soul, in what’s sure to be one of the most iconic Verzuz battles to date. The legendary pop divas and longtime collaborators will take to the Verzuz instagram and Apple Music at 5PM PT/8PM ET on the 13th to perform their numerous hits; a tweet from Verzuz asks viewers to “get dressed up in ya Sunday’s best for this classic affair.”

Verzuz, which started as a response to the pandemic, has been hosting increasingly heavyweight battles each week, including this past Sunday’s reunion of nemeses and collaborators Brandy and Monica, which was watched by a purported 1.2 million viewers worldwide. Other pairings that have gone head-to-head on Verzuz include Erykah Badu and Jill Scott and Nelly and Ludacris. Read about what went down during Brandy and Monica’s Verzuz here.
