Two heavyweights of 80s R&B music are about to get into the virtual ring and duke it out for vocal superiority. 

On Nov. 18, Chaka Khan and Stephanie Mills will go head-to-head a special holiday edition of Verzuz.

The entertainment series created by Swizz Beats and Timbaland during the heart of the pandemic pits some of today and yesteryear's best artists against each other in a battle-rap format. 

The duo, who are friends off the stage, first pitched the idea for a showdown with each other last year. 

"Chaka was interested. We were willing to do it. The Verzuz people weren’t interested. Yeah, they weren’t interested.” Mills said during an interview with The Breakfast Club in June.

Mills wasn't sure why the battle didn't come together then, but the star, who rose to fame as Dorothy in the Broadway run of the musical "The Wiz," posted “It’s about to go down!” on Twitter following the announcement. 

The singer, a Grammy winner for "Never Knew Love Like This Before," faces a tough opponent in Khan —  who has 10 Grammys and is known as the "Queen of Funk."
