The next installment of Swiss Beats and Timbaland's Verzuz series on Instagram Live will see a female-charged battle with Erykah Badu and Jill Scott getting into the fray. The program will go live on May 9, at 7 p.m. EST.

Timbaland announced the news last Friday, tweeting, "It's time for the Queens on Verzuz."

"It's time for the Queens to represent," he wrote in the caption.
"@erykahbadu vs @missjillscott the paper work is in @timbaland.

Previous battles in the series included Swizz Beats versus Timbaland, DJ Premier versus RZA, Teddy Riley versus Babyface and T-Pain versus Lil Jon.

Fans have been itching for Badu to get in on the fun, suggesting she go up against Ms. Lauryn Hill. "I'll be pulverized," she admitted.

Badu, a multiplatimum-selling artist, has won four Grammy awards in addition to several other accolades. She keeps herself busy by hosting the Quarantine Concert Series.

Scott has released five studio albums so far, including 2015's Woman. She has won three Grammys and three Soul Train Awards.
