Erykah Badu and Jill Scott will be facing off in the first women's Verzuz battle. Organizer Swizz Beatz made the announcement today on social media, revealing that the Instagram Live session is scheduled for May 9, the day before Mother's Day.

"It’s time for the Queens to represent?? @erykahbadu vs @missjillscott the paper work is in," Swizz said on Instagram.

Past Verzuz contestants include Boi-1da, Hit-Boy, The-Dream, Sean Garrett, Ne-Yo, Johntá Austin, French Montana, Tory Lanez, Mannie Fresh, Scott Storch, T-Pain, Lil Jon, DJ Premier, RZA, Teddy Riley, Babyface, Ryan Tedder, and Benny Blanco.

There is also a rumor that Diddy and Dr. Dre could take part in the Instagram Live series, which would likely be the biggest matchup to date.
