Back in 1998, Monica and Brandy fought over Mekhi Pfifer on their diva-licious track “The Boy Is Mine.” The chart-topping single not only became a ubiquitous summer jam that year, but still serves as a choice karaoke tune for frenemies everywhere.
Fourteen years later (yes, 14!!! You read that right), the ladies are back in the studio cooking up another track with one another. They confirmed the highly-anticipated duet on Twitter. “We have Both Been Blessed Beyond Measure..14years later.. #TURNTHELIGHTSON,” Monica wrote. “Love @4everBrandy.”
It seems that whatever rivalry existed on that song never seeped into the real world as Brandy sent back lots of love. She answered, “I love you so much Mo thank u!” Both singers are currently working on new music and little else is known about this particular track or when anyone might get the chance to hear it.
For those who may not have lived through “The Boy Is Mine” zeitgeist, it was next level. The song was everywhere. The video was everywhere. It was inescapable. Not that anyone really wanted to escape it. It was produced by some of the biggest names in music at the time, including Dallas Austin and the still-in-demand Rodney Jerkins.
With a new song in-the-works, we have to say that it doesn’t matter who the boy actually belonged to as long as this new track is just as pitch-perfect as their last collabo. Check out their classic “The Boy is Mine” after the jump.
