Roommate, after the news that the next two ‘Verzuz’ battles would be a match between The Isley Brothers versus Earth, Wind & Fire and Method Man versus Redman, fans could guess the remaining battles – but Xscape member LaTocha Scott BIG news revealed only! If you were wondering when ‘Verzuz’ is going to have its next R&B fight, your prayers have been answered courtesy of Xscape and SWV.
Xscape singer LaTocha Scott was caught by TMZ cameras outside and smiled as she officially confirmed that Xscape will face SWV in the girls group’s very first match on May 8th with all members present. If you’re a die-hard ‘Verzuz’ fan then you know that both groups have been continually raised by fans to take part in the viral musical journey into the past – and they finally got their wish.
In her brief interview, LaTocha also said that initially when Xscape was first approached about participating in ‘Verzuz’ there were talks about them having an R&B group fight between men and women against Jodeci. This has obviously changed, however, and now the group will compete against R&B rival SWV from the ’90s.
As for the upcoming Easter Sunday battle between R&B / soul legends The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire, fans can expect a decade-long lesson in music history with two of the genre’s most influential and leading groups bridging the musical void between old and new fans.
