It’s goin’ down, R&B fans!
While speaking to TMZ Wednesday in New York, Xscape’s LaTocha Scott confirmed that the legendary female group will go head-to-head against SWV in a May 8 Verzuz battle.
“It’s happening now. It’s happening now. May 8th,” LaTocha said in the clip, confirming that her bandmates — Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and sister Tamika Scott — will be in attendance.
When asked how the idea came about, LaTocha credited the fans for making it happen!
“Everybody was saying it. All the fans. They were voting for SWV. At first, we were thinking a girl group versus a guy group, like Jodeci. But SWV just stood out,” she explained.
LaTocha later posted the clip on her Instagram, adding the caption, “It’s On.”
Although Verzuz has not confirmed the battle, their Instagram account has been posting a schedule of future events with the details blurred out.
Back in December, Kandi teased the throwdown while posting a video of SWV’s LeLee Lyons visiting Xscape in the studio.
“Should SWV & XSCAPE do a verzuz?” the star of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” wrote at the time.
Get ready, y’all! It’s going to be epic!
