Get your snacks and drinks orders in, prep your couch: D’Angelo is on the bill for the next Verzuz battle.

The R&B star will rumble with his as-yet unannounced opponent live from Harlem’s historic Apollo Theater on Feb. 27.

He’ll be joined by some mystery “friends” on what’s bound to be a “legendary night,” organizers say.

D’Angelo’s most recent album, 2014’s Black Messiah, peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200. His highest-charting Hot 100 hit, “Lady,” stands as his lone top 10, having hit No. 10 on March 30, 1996.

Co-created by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, Verzuz is now in its second season. In recent weeks, we’ve seen Jeezy vs Gucci Mane, E-40 take on Too Short, and Ashanti against Keyshia Cole.

D’Angelo and friends take center stage next Saturday 8 p.m. ET on VerzuzTV’s Instagram Live and Apple Music.
