Read: Monica Believes Brandy ‘VERZUZ’ Battle Will Finally End Their Longtime Feud Rumors

Published: Friday 28th Aug 2020 by Rashad

It’s been over 22 years since Brandy and Monica ruled the charts with one of the biggest duets of all-time, ‘The Boy is Mine.’  

But, while its effect on music history books cannot be understated Mo believes too much of the focus on the tune’s impact is on the rumored-turned-real life rivalry between the two (which eventually spilled over to their respective fan bases).

Though initially suggesting they were on the fence about participating in a #VERZUZ battle against each other (as we reported here), August 22 brought with it news the hitmaking duo had finally agreed to participate in the phenomenon – making it one of the most highly anticipated duels to date.

Ahead of the showdown, Monica dished on what viewers can expect and what she hopes the true result of her forthcoming time with Brandy brings.

Read it inside:

Taking to ‘ET’ to chat with resident anchor Nischelle Turner, Mo talked at length about the song’s enduring impact – positive and negative – on music lovers.


“We’re different in the way that we dress and the things that we’ve experienced and where we grew up and I think those differences are what made ‘The Boys Is Mine’ so special.” 


“It was not something that I would say was anyone’s fault,” Monica says now, admitting, “We all added to it and after a while it became real.”


“It gets a little bit frustrating for both she and I when it becomes, ‘No, I like her better. Well, I like her better.’”

“We don’t have to do that [now],” she continued.  “[I don’t like] the idea of our issues overshadowing how great of a song it really was and how much of a blessing it was for both of us to be a part of it.”


“We’ve long removed ourselves from the dramatics of it but we’re gonna have a very in-depth conversation that may possibly be shared even with the audience because there’s a lot that happens, the fans have no idea what really took place, what really caused the initial friction,” she said.  “Hopefully, we can help some of the younger artists avoid doing the same thing because we did a whole lot more together than we did apart.”


“I’ll see what she wants to do when she finally gets to Atlanta,” Monica says. “We’ll sit down and figure out which direction we want to go and how we want to do it. I just look forward to what Monday will be. It’ll be a celebration,” she concludes. 


Brandy vs. Monica’s VERZUZ airs live from Tyler Perry Studios on Monday, August 31 at 8PM EST.

    In a perfect world… this battle would’ve been Monica vs Brandy Vs Aaliyah. I think a 3 way battle would’ve made sense since the 3 of them owns the 90’s and early 00’s with their hits!

    • Ugghh August 28, 2020

      No Aaliyah was in her own lane.

    • Lyka August 28, 2020

    • POPS+MUVA August 28, 2020

      No baby girl. Aaliyah was unique and in her own lane with a different sound. She brought her A game to the table always. So no.

    People will still try it no matter what. They can’t get over the fact that both of these woman are incredible women and artist. To people, one us to be better than the other. It’s so sad. I love the both. I have all of their albums and actually had a chance to see Monica live. Front row. What an experience! Next it’ll be Brandy😁😁. Ready for this celebration Monday.

  10. Eric August 28, 2020

    That conversation should definitely be shared with the fans. I was already saying that last week. Clear the air and just have fun.

  11. 1988 August 28, 2020

    I’m excited to watch! 💕

  12. ClarkSUN August 28, 2020

    Brandy wishes she could sang like Monica

    • What WOuld Whitney say: B**** PLease August 29, 2020

      b**** please , brandy was the chosen by WHitney HOUston for the waiting to exhale soundtrack,

  13. C00nson August 28, 2020

    Brandy is referred to as the vocal bible for a reason. Monicas donkey ass can’t sing A lick just a toss in the mix with no talent like that ugly racist camilo ..just there. No solid fan base no noticeable achievements no nothing..Professional yodeler at best …

  14. Johny5 August 29, 2020

    It wasn’t a rumor lol we all saw them feuding

  15. i hate whyyte and blacck bitchess August 29, 2020
