    Brandy Won, this site obviously is a sore loser and refuse to congratulate the Winner : Brandy

    • Clarks0o0ñ September 5, 2020

      Monica- 11.2 million streams
      Brandy- 10.9 million streams

      What’s not clicking ?

      • Pat September 5, 2020

        Brandy had 4 albums still in iTunes top 100 to Monica 0 as of yesterday Even her greatest hits was outselling Monica’s highest charting album. That’s what’s clicking

      • Tori September 5, 2020

        Pat, even with her albums higher on the chart than Monicas, Monica streams are higher than Brandy by 0.3 so… I’m not understanding your argument here. Even now, Brandy’s albums are falling and Monica’s single are still holding up.

      • Atticus September 5, 2020

        But ummm Brandy still has three albums in the top 20. Monica has 0. And that’s no shade just a fact.

      • J September 5, 2020

        Monica’s streams include a new single and she still barely has more. Both are winning but Brandy is the winner

      • Cas September 5, 2020

        @ J…🤣😭😭😭 you Brandy gays are hilarious. Even with the numbers above, you clowns are still declaring Brandy the winner.

        Monica- 11.2 million streams
        Brandy- 10.9 million streams

        That right there states who the winner is, (Monica) and the people have spoken. So save the rebuttal of asinine gibberish. Man you clowns are hilarious 🤣🤣

    • Pat September 5, 2020

      @Tori. By .3. ThAts really not by much at all if u underStand streaming tho

    • Your Name September 5, 2020

      This thin ass margin lmao if it were a presidential race it would be “too close to call”. They both won. Have a seat.

      • Clarks0o0ñ September 5, 2020

        300k streams is not a thin àss margin.

        300k votes in an election is not a thin àss margin. That’s enough votes to make u win an election.
        😭😭

        Monica ate her up.
        Even their fashion during the versus battle, monica ate brandy up. Lol

    • STARR September 5, 2020

      • Cas September 5, 2020

        @STARR,..why don’t you address Brandy’s album falling off the billboard 200 in two weeks 🤣😭😭

      • STARR September 5, 2020

        AFTER YOU ADDRESS HOW PRESSED YOU ARE. MEANWHILE B7 IS BACK AT #1 ON ITUNES. NEVER SAY NEVER #18 FULL MOON #21 GOODBYE

      • Cas September 5, 2020

        LMAOOOO And by next week, her album will fall right back off of billboard like the first time LMAOOOO.

  2. Nicky September 5, 2020

    Camickys pyscho stan wouldn’t know anything about album sales.

    Brandy Never Say Never album sold 14 million alone 😂😂😂

    And now Brandys catalog albums are selling

    • Clarks0o0ñ September 5, 2020

      Speaking of album, where is normani’s album?
      We are in the month of September and still no album.
      The year is almost over, still no album
      😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    • Tori September 5, 2020

      Hold on Nicky, me and Clarkson are proving a point here because we’re really trying to see how is 300K more than 10.9M is a thin azs margin or not much by streaming standards, especially since I don’t ‘know how streaming works’. I mean, its been more all along but for some reason since people are trying to prove that Brandy won against actual numbers, now its not considered more.

  3. Monica4life September 5, 2020

    Monica always comes out on top. The world f**** with the real clearly. Congrats boo.

  4. IKNOWTHETRUTH September 5, 2020

    MONICA HAS ALWAYS BEEN MORE PRESENT N RELEVANT.

    • Monica4Life September 5, 2020

      Always.

    • STARR September 5, 2020

      WHERE? ON INSTAGRAM LMAO THE DOVES SO DELUDED

  5. Ajm265 September 5, 2020

    The fans are the reason these two can never win together. Clearly they both are stronger together than apart but miserable people who live their lives in a competitive mind set cause a bunch of drama and bull s*** grow up.

    • Uncle Cliff September 5, 2020

      Omg they’re so pathetic. And most of these fans are 30 and 40 years old. Get a grip and a life.

    • Gag September 5, 2020

      Yes they are pathetic literally arguing over who’s streamed how many millions

  6. Uncle Cliff September 5, 2020

    Please don’t tell me y’all are really arguing over a small difference in streams. Monica and Brandy fans are So pathetic… yeah I said it. Neither of these ladies are pushing units. Neither of them are on on major charts. It’s been that way for years. Beyond that, BOTH are talented women who had their time and are still here and BOTH are finally getting their deserved flowers. Less arguing and more purchasing & streaming. Our 90s legends deserve it.🙄🙄🙄🙄

    • Your Name September 5, 2020

      Lol🤦‍♂️

  7. Cas September 5, 2020

    Big congrats to Monica. Missthang always comes out on top.

  8. Paulo September 5, 2020

    Props to both legends 👏🏻 hopefully with Brandy getting renewed interest her fans will stop being the driest bitter h*** on stan internet☕

  9. DeanD September 5, 2020

    Congratulations to both women! I doubt either thought this would be the success it has turned out to be. They’re relevant in a way they haven’t been in decades. But of course toxic fandom has to come in and with homophobic comments, ratchet deflections and a need to pit these two legends against each other in a way even they don’t care about. Let Brandy and Monica have this shine for a minute! They’ll probably never get this kind of attention again.

  10. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭 September 5, 2020

    Brandy is the new biblegirl drag 😂🤣😂🤣

  11. tyty September 5, 2020

    Dead y’all actually arguing over streams and money being earn’t that you will never see? I’m cackling. There is literally only a marginal difference in their streams. I’m dead 😂😭

    • Gag September 5, 2020

      Exactly!!

  12. Don’t touch my hair September 5, 2020

    I’m happy for them!!!
    I love Monica past hits:

    Angel of Mine
    Right Here Waiting feat 112
    For You I Will
    The Boy Mine w/ Brandy
