It looks like Babyface and Teddy Riley’s Instagram Live battle will not be taking place today (April 5) after all. In a lengthy post to Instagram, Swizz Beatz updated fans regarding the change in schedule.

“The date is changed but keep your outfits on deck because the new date is coming back ASAP and we’re taking the quality to the next levels for these 2 Kings #VERZUZ !!!!!!! @timbaland let’s go !!!! You will understand later trust me!!!!! Nobody backed out FYI,” he wrote as his caption.

On April 3, Swizz announced the exciting news that a legendary battle was set to take place between the two R&B legends. “@teddyriley1 VS @babyface This is one of the iconic moments me & @timbaland have been working on!” Swizz wrote at the time. “The Sunday will go down in the history books! Once again VERZUZ made it happen ! See you Sunday 6pm est on @teddyriley1 Live Zone Zone Zone!!!!!!!”

In light of everyone practicing social distancing measures, Timbaland and Swizz have organized several Instagram Live battles to keep fans entertained. Most recently, Lil Jon and T-Pain went head-to-head in an epic showdown on Saturday (April 4).

During the music battle, both musicians played throwback jams that kept fans glued to their phone screens including “Gasolina (Remix),” “Blow The Whistle,” “Buy U A Drank,” “Got Money” and more. To add icing on the cake, Jon also played an unreleased track that featured Usher and Ludacris. He also revealed that the song was recorded two years ago and would’ve served as the follow-up to their single “Lovers & Friends.”

In a similar fashion to Jon, The-Dream also previewed an unreleased song during his songwriters battle with Sean Garrett. Following the showdown, TIDAL released JAY-Z’s “Holy Grail” with the “Falsetto” singer featured on the chorus.
