Monica and Brandy are getting ready to reunite!
The singers, who teamed up for the iconic “The Boy Is Mine” duet in 1998, will be facing off in the next Verzuz battle on Monday, August 31.
Monica revealed in a new interview that she and Brandy might discuss their former feud during their reunion.
“When we did the song, we didn’t overthink it,” Monica shared with ET. “The Boy Is Mine” is about two women fighting over the same man.
After the song was released, the industry and media said that Monica and Brandy were feuding in real life, which lead to a lot of tensions between the singers.
“It was not something that I would say was anyone’s fault,” Monica says now. “We all added to it and after a while it became real.”
Now that they’re older, Monica says “it gets a little bit frustrating for both she and I when it becomes, ‘No, I like her better. Well, I like her better.’”
Monica hopes that their Verzuz battle will finally show people that their feud has been put to rest.
“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,” Monica said.
As for their battle, Monica wants people to see that she and Brandy have grown up since releasing their duet.
“We share a lot in common. And then at the same time, we’re completely different,” Monica said. “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.”
