Since news first broke of the reunion of R&B beauties Brandy and Monica, fans have been in a frenzy with wishes of live performances of the new cut. At its introduction, ‘The Boy Is Mine’ sequel ‘It All Belongs To Me’ gained instant approval from both diva’s devoted fans.
Now, as reported here, the first televised performance of the tune has surfaced. Lifted from tonight’s airing of ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’, hear the diva duo soar as they bring this Rico Love produced track to life live.
It all awaits after the jump:
Not that we expected less, but that was every flavor of awesome! Both ladies brought their A-game to this performance and offered a quick reminder why they are two of R&B’s leading ladies!!
This song is sounding better and better.
Brandy gave me E V E R Y T H I N G I needed to know what this new album is gonna be like in this performance. her vocals were f****** insane!! * bows *
Smashed it! 🙂
@davon couldn’t agree more!! I was so iffy on the song at first and without even realizing I’ve been singing and playing it everyday! And now they have the nerve to slay my life with that performance YASSSS!!! I love both ladies but brandy ate that s*** and spit it out .. I’m gna need them to perform this song weekly!!
WOW SLAYED! And brandy OMG did u hear those runs that women is a beast!
This song is just plain f****** boring. Brandy and Monica need to come harder. I’ve tried to get into this song but the production SUCKS! This collaboration seems too rushed.
On the bright side, Brandy sounds amazing!
Monica’s voice >>> That note at the end was every bot of EPIC!!!!! Brandy kinda started off flat but brought it back up! NEW LIFE: APRIL 10TH!
YESSSS!!! FLAWLESS, LOVED IT!!! SINNNNNNNNNNNNNNG LOVE BRANDY && MONICA!!
Good job ladies! Brandy f***** slayyyyyyyyed.
Monica ws pitchy
all i have to say is BRANDYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT TONE IS JUST >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Monica is a BEAST VOCALLYY
BRANDYYYYY SMASHED IT FROM BEGINNING TO END!!!
GREAT PERFORMANCE LADIES !
I AM ANTICIPATING THE VIDEO
brandy gave me LIFEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
They both rock! The song is growing on me every day. They look amazing.
Both ladies slayed
i can’t wait to purchase both their albums 🙂
I love how THATGRAPEJUICE shows brandy and monica love
Brandy SLAYED!!!! Mo sounded great too but Bran ripped it.
Now that is what I call singing! They both killed it and looked great! True artists!
1st time ever no negative comments …so far i hate the live performance of the song i love the recorded version. I think Monica made this song live the endding …omg and brandy she delivered…. its a powerful song and i wish the fans would buy it … so that it would be a top ten hit. i know for sure this is going to be a number one r&b track, just because of the artist … but the billboard 100 is what counts.#IABTM
They both were solid and it was refreshing to see the song done live. I love Brandy’s low to high register she sings in. She builds through out the song and gives it so much character and so many layers. She’s so creative and clever in her singing. Brandy makes this song for me! She’s a beast!!!!!! Monica did great with that note at the end too.
It was alright, I was expecting more. I just can’t take the song seriously due to the lyrics. I mean, honestly, the production and lyrics all could’ve been just better, for a more mature audience….
The song is a mess and Monica snatched Brandy’s 2 cent wig!!!
Brandy gave me my life back ….you bettta werkkkkk,,,,yasssss!!!
I’m with Kathy, although the song is growing on me i cant take Rico Loves Apple product placement in his songs, he did the same with a Kelly Rowland song talking bout iphone and its just cheesy, These are grown ass women and their last albums didn’t have these juvenile elements so i don’t know why they chose this song
– a few changes in lyrics and it could’ve been better.
The performance was good and i’m still rooting for them both
Can someone please snatch Almond Joys dusty wig…lol. I’m kidding, but honestly no one’s wig was “snatched”. They shared the stage and gave it there all with exceptional results.
Wow…. They did great! Love how Monica ended the song.. #ripWhitney
I have been watching for this for a long time! I am so happy I finally to the chance to witness this awesome live performance from them. I’ve been a hardcore Brandy fan since FOREVER! This song is brilliant and this performance is awesome! Brandy’s deep vocals are so full and moving, and her runs are effortless and dynamic. Thumbs up ladies!
YAAAAAAAAASSS BRANDY DID THE DAMN THINGGG!!!
Did you hear brandy say, “YESSSSSS!!!!!” when Monica hit that note? It’s cute to hear them cheer each other on like that.
LMFAO @ someone saying Brandy was flat. HAHAHAHAHAHA. I mean I’, literally laughing. Bran started out low [killing it] and lil by lil crescendoed into full voice. You better learn about vocals and music before EVER coming for Brandy Norwood. Monica was nice too but B. SMH
The song takes new meaning for me, no longer speaking to a lover but a drug of any baggage we carry. It’s now on a whole new level. Open your minds from the pop rubbish and catchy beats [billboard, top 40, 106 and park] that you’re used to and get into emotion. Sheesh. This was amazing for a first live run after a crazy life changing weekend.
It is so great seeing them both on stage in the spotlight especially all that they are both going through! They sounded great! I have to add that my baby BRANDY looks ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS TONIGHT!! Lets stop with this who sounded better crap….ya’ll get on my nerves with that! They are both great singers and did an awesome job tonight!
BOTH KILLED ON KEY
Extras from BRANDY YESSSSSSSSSS HOT runs and tone
Monica LAST NOTES DAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
Thing is there’s still more to come..
Great from both as real musical ears can hear!!
Monica is pregnant!
Yes! Monica gave me my life! Brandy did her thing too. Did you hear how Brandy was yeeesss when Mo was singing…
OMG i actually shed a tear at the ending that was emotional, and amazing, glad to see the too women who will keep whitneys legacy alive back in the limelight, i love them both
i have no idea what anyone is talking about lol. i mean unless my computer makes things flat and sharp i heard a boat load of that. not to mention as bad as ya’ll talk about rihanna and anyone else on this site when posting the shock that you didn’t clown them on that seems like……..YA GOT PAID T SAY IT! lol but thats just me
Love it, they really gave all they could, so glad they did!
Yaw gave me exactly what I wanted…. I could never have another Fave brandy you are a Beast!’ yaw shared the Stage n I felt the Love… Yaw truly vibe together!!
Now that’s how true R&B veterans do it!!!!
Show these young’uns how to put it down!!!
Great job ladies!!! Showing why they are still two of music’s greatest forces!!!
Yaw gave me exactly what I wanted…. I could never have another Fave brandy you are a Beast!’ yaw shared the Stage n I felt the Love… Yaw truly vibe together!!
Proof is in the pudding….Monica killed every note! Just like the record but better! Brandy’s lower register needed some help, but she did better after Monica opened her up. I was surprised Brandy couldn’t get up there like on the recording, but I liked it!
Brandy killed it… To hear this girl sing is like hearing two different singers at once..the highs and lows are two completely different spectrums….People don’t know what range is….range is how high you can go from your lowest….I liv Monica too…brandy is all over the musical scale…lived it
Monica was better.
BRANDY’S VOICE IS SOMETHING SPECIAL!!!!!! ….I LIKE THE LOWER REGISTER THAT SHE DID IN THE BEGINNING…
Monica has it! Her album is about to slay NEW LIFE April 10 pre ordered my copies already! Team Monica lets goo!
SLAYEDDDDDDDDD!!!! They betta promo the you-know-what outta this song. Love Brandy and Monica so much 🙂
My baby Monica tho>>>>> these r&b chicks are just no match for her! From kc to brandy smh better luck in the next life tho
Both ladies complemented one another. I love Brandy’s husky tone and lower register as well as Monica’s belting and runs toward the end. Both ladies looked great, especially Brandy. I’m glad to see them push forward after losing their idol this past week. Kudos to both you ladies!
I think for a first performance, the ladies did well. I would like to see them do the following:
Brandy – work on her lower register live. I think she did ok, but it started off a bit off. However, once she got into it, she was GREAT!!!!!
Monica- Beautiful Beautiful Job. Amazing vocal with those notes at the end of the song. Begin to dress in a fashion that does more to compliment the person you are doing the duet with.
I think BOTH ladies did a great job. Now, they need to do it a few more times to really add the “IT FACTOR” to the performance.
Yeah Mo was better!
BRANDY WINS HANDS DOWN! Effortless vocals and runs while monica vibrato was shaking EVERYWHERE and she was on the verge of cracking the WHOLE time. Anyone who say manica was better is musically challenged. GOOD DAY!
I’ll first say that i LOVEEEEE this song and i’m sure the live performances will only get better from here.
Monica and Brandy are my 2 favorite singers and they slayed tonight!!
Although i think Monica slayed a little more, they both did damn good.
Brandy’s runs were everything, but Monica’s tone and that last night….just sent me through the roof!!
Good Job Ladies!
That damn Monica SLAYED. The song and performance was just OK. Dead at Brandy getting her life when Monica smashed that last note, like this is my song!!!!
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSs They did EXCELLENT! Everyone purchase the song on itunes NOW!!
This was the moment that I was waiting for and I will have to say that the ladies didn’t disappoint. Brandy began the song a little shaky in her lower register but once she got into it she went innnnnnnnnnn! The girl is a vocal beast!! I give her major props… Now on to Monica, she kilt it. Monica knows her strength and she knows that she’s an edgy singer who can kill an live performance. From the beginning of her verse to that amazing note at the end she delivered. People saying she was pitchy must be tone death b/c she gave everything and that note at the end…amazing…even Brandy had to give her props. I must give it to Monica she delivers everytime!!
i hope everyone who thinks this song is GREAT! go buys it on ITUNES. Personally, i think this song is so generic and boring….and im just not a fan right now. SORRY….i really dont know what yall are hearing… I think yall just cheering for Brandy because she had the strength to come back and she’s a very sweet girl, but …it is what it is.
Such powerful vocals from both females. they may deserve a grammy for this one. i have to see the video. but such talent, Bandy you stepped it up grately compared to “the boy is mine” monica, honey you are overdue for another grammy.
Brandys tone is just greattttttt
Monica…that last note…..superb
The song is growing on me. It needed a stronger chorus… but no denyin that these ladies can sing
Yes to brandys runs.. But honey… Monica slayed the house down.. That girl can blow!!!!! They really compliment each other.. I love how Monica Cha cha’d to the mic lmao and that last note ..: girl…. Sing down… Sing down.. Brandy ur upper register slayed me… Great job ladys..
YES YES YESSSSSSSSS BOTH LADIES ARE FINE S*** & FIERCE !!!!!! THEY DID THEIR THANG !!!!!
I think they both did great…Brandy has evolved and her tone is great….Monica as well she killed that note at the end…but some parts pitchy…rip whitney….
After Brandy finished her verse the crowd screamed and applauded. All manica did was that last thing at the end which was chiii booo!
YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS both of them slayed ….get it MO and Brandy due it for Whitney H(RIP)
BRANDY’s VOCALS!!!!!!!!!! im sitting her amazed!!!!!! her tone is CRAZY!!!!! the way she started low and finished high! those RUNS!!!! SHE IS AMAZING!!!! monica did good to but OMG BRANDY KILLLLLED THAT DO YOU HEAR ME!!!!!
So i just want to comment on the people discussing the production and the lyrics.
Productionwise: I like it because its not over done. I like that they decided to so something that didnt even sound close to the Boy is Mine. When you have two big voices like Brand and Mo’s you need a simpler production so those vocals can shine otherwise it will sound like to much is going on.
Lyrics: Okay people we are living in 2012 not 1842. Realistically they are speaking of thinks that a typical adult in today’s society encounters. I know 50 year old people with a facebook and a macbook. If anything it dates the song which isnt a bad thing at all. IE. Bug a boo “throw my pager out the window, tell MCI to cut the phone post”.
So in both respects to production and lyrics stop over thinking it because i honestly dont think they did. They just wanted to sing a song together. Everythihg isnt about trying to be epic. ya kno!!! Sidenote: a lot of the hype of the boy is mine is that a that time they were both pretty hot artist and also people thought they hated each other. People looooove drama and there is no drama this time so people of course have something to say…okay im done.
For both to be veterans neither slayed on this. Both had a hard time handling the low notes and failed at trying to redeem themselves when they opened up. They sounded like beginners but then again Brandy always had a hard time performing live. I’m a little shocked at Monica but then again she didn’t sound comfortable on the record either. Seems like more of a Brandy record than a Monica record and I agree they could’ve came harder than this. Interesting beat but that’s it. The lyrics failed to pick up where the boy is mine left off.
Brandy and Monica both ate it completely da f*ck up…giving me everything I need.
B-Rocka 2012 <3
It was a cool performances… Monica was a little pitch-ie
Baaaabbbyyyyy, when I tell you that I’m loving me some Brandy and Monica right about now.
Proud stan of both!
Brandy could always sing better to me and has more singing range but monica is good too.
Monica IS A FAR BETTER VOCALIST THEN BRANDY.
Nope brandy’s high and low registars are both controlled and smooth. Again, monica is good too but brandy’s vocal tone and riffs are mutli-layered and gorgeous and way more impressive to me.
Monica has more parts in this song that’s why she was killing the performance. Brandy obviously was letting her sing more in this song after 14 years since brandy SLAYED in the boy is mine.
I agree that Monica is the (much) better singer. That low, bassy thing Brandy did at the top of the song wasn’t hot. Half the time she mumbles and that’s never good.
Monica’s vocals are clearer and much more steady than Brandy’s. That makes her the better singer.
Monica’s ending note = YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
mizthang shut ya hating low llife ass up
Brandy f***** slayyyyyeeeeeddddddddddd!! That b**** gave me chills I loved Monica too especially that last note. I do agree I wish the lyrics were stronger but.altogether this song has grown on me and I live for anything Brandy does!.
Am I the only one who would LOVE LOVE LOVE an entire album between the two, especially since they are now labelmates?
Yesss Brandy come on out that shell! That’s what the f*** i’m talking about! Yes we got you Brandy!
i love both of them and that it all, Brandy…speechless.. Monica and that last note girrrrrlllll!!
i gotta stop coming to this site…its like i’m commenting with a bunch of musically unknowledgeable kids…that was awful…
Both ladies did a great job! They both started off shaky but once Brandy got into it, she went in! Monica WAS pitchy though. She picked it up with adlibs. THAT LAST NOTE WAS EVERYTHING!
Both ladies did their thing considering how they’re still mourning over Whitney…Brandy’s low part was a bit rough, but she was on the right pitch the who time!! And her transition from her lower register to her upper register was AMAZING! Her extended run before Monica’s first verse is>>>>>>>
Monica was good…she just goes for it, and you have to give her credit for that…Her last note was a bit dramatic…also, she was off key on her higher notes, she really seemed to be struggling up there…it’s like she went sharp and flat on two of those high notes…She needs to work on that a bit more.
Brandy missed one of the BEST runs in the song towards the end…I hope she doesn’t forget to do it next time…Anyways, I’ll give them a pass since it was the first performance….
For a lot of you who claim to love this song that’s surely not reflecting on itunes or the Hot 100.
1st: Is this how they are going on after 1st live performance.
Sounded really really good.
Couple things 2 work on are a semi-tone up 4 the starr maybe for Brandy at the start.
Monica got to do a little more with the chorus & section just after the bridge bit to
Let just agree that whether Brandy is your fav or Monica is your fav
THEY BOTH DID THAT!
LOL @ people showing how very LITTLE they know about vocals with these ‘critiques’ & comments. where in the f*** was brandy ‘flat’? =\
monica’s pitchiness was BEYOND evident in her verse. also, volume & off key belting does not = ‘slaying’. they both looked great, esp. bran. her vocals were consistent as well as effortless, and monica’s last run was nice.

“Monica’s last run was nice” ***did that hurt to write? it was more than nice!***
What songs do you sing to call Monica pitchy on this performance ?
I suggest you school yourself and play the actual song then listen to this again..
These are seasoned professional artists with longevity and experience who are respected in the industry.
It’s irrelevant for you and others to try down Monica to boost Brandy and same to down Brandy to boost Monica.
They work together, they work well together and they will continue to slay together during this promotional push.
UPLIFT both of them if you are a true fan and support the movement.
My schooling is over
Class Dismissed 🙂
BRandy VOcal QUEEEEEEENNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That Run At the End Was Taking From When U Believe ….
