It was the IG Live showdown of the year...

When neo-soul icons collide...

Earlier this week Erykah Badu and Jill Scott told fans they could battle it out on IG Live.

It was all in good spirits, of course, with the social media platform's split-screen presentation placing two modern music geniuses against one another.

Switching between hits and deep cuts, the pair joked freely, pushing each other higher, with an evident sense of mutual respect running through the performance.

The whole thing ran late into the wee small hours, but the battle has been uploaded in full to YouTube.

No sign of how long it will remain online, so you'd best enjoy it while you can.
