“If only you knew” that this would happen...because “neither one of us” was expecting this!
On Tuesday evening, the official Verzuz account tweeted that the next upcoming event will feature two beloved icons: Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle!
“The Master Class we’ve ALL been waiting for!” the account tweeted, urging all fans to dress up in their “Sunday’s best.”
Imagine the epic storytime that will go down! We thought Brandy and Monica were full of shade, now imagine this pair of OGs showing us how it’s really done—even if it’s not toward each other (the two are longtime friends).
This is truly iconic! In fact, when I first saw the graphic, I thought somebody’s cousin had thrown something together because I truly couldn’t believe it. I wasn’t alone in that sentiment, either.
Speaking of being alone, the sense of community on Black Twitter jumped out as everyone expressed just how excited they were for this to happen.
We talked about what we’re going to wear…
...what we’re going to eat…
...and the rest of the shenanigans that will undoubtedly ensue.
So, save the date and prepare to watch on Instagram Live or Apple Music, whichever your preference. Gladys Knight Verzuz Patti LaBelle goes down for “One Night Only” on Sunday, Sept. 13 at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET.
Now, I’ll just be sitting here awaiting a call from my mama, who previously had no interest in joining any social media, asking me how I “set up that Instagram y’all use.”
