Chaka Khan and Stephanie Mills will be the next to battle via Verzuz for a special holiday edition. The match featuring the two R&B legends will take place on November 18, and will be live from The Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. EST.
The Verzuz official Twitter account dropped the news Saturday night calling the event a “holiday special for the queens.” Verzuz also recently announced a battle between Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Three 6 Mafia, who will be head-to-head in early December and will also stream live from Los Angeles.
In other news, Chaka Khan released a recording of “When The Time Comes” back in September, as part of the official soundtrack from the upcoming Amazon Prime film Everybody’s Talking About Jamie. The song wraps up the film with an uplifting aura of positivity.
“We decided that in order to complete the soundtrack for the movie, we needed an icon,” said soundtrack writer Dan Gillespie Sells. “We were already delighted with how multi-generational and varied the soundtrack was, including artists that chimed with the LGBTQ+ community and with Jamie’s story.”
