The 2019 Trumpet Awards paid tribute to Urban producer extraordinaire Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins over the weekend for his immeasurable contributions to music that span well over two decades.
Producing hits for the likes of Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Beyonce, and more over his career, Jerkins crowning achievement may still be the 1998 smash, ‘The Boy Is Mine,’ recorded by Brandy and Monica (which spent a whopping 13 weeks at #1).
A performance of the cut came as the highlight of the homage, which will air on Bounce TV February 11th (Brandy’s birthday), and was given a 2019 revamp courtesy of R&B starlets Justine Skye and Sevyn Streeter.
Did they do it justice? Look inside and tell us:
