D’Angelo has been announced as the next Verzuz guest, despite not having a single opponent yet. Instead, he will perform live with a number of unannounced friends from Harlem’s historic Apollo Theater. It happens on Saturday, February 27th at 8 p.m. Eastern, aired on Instagram.

Verzuz is now in its second season after starting last spring. The most recent battles have fought hits from Gucci Mane and Jeezy, Brandy and Monica, and E-40 and Too $. More recently, Ashanti and Keyshia Cole had to reschedule their episode twice due to COVID-19 concerns. Other notable guests on the show included icons like Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight. D’Angelo’s latest album is Black Messiah from 2014, although he played producer Slingbaum’s song “Behoove” with Erykah Badu last year.
