Brandy Reminded the Essence Festival Crowd "The Boy is Mine" is not Monica of the Song, Is it

She's had enough.

New Orleans, LA – While performing at the 2018 Essence Festival in New Orleans, Brandy took the audience by surprise as she sang the 1998 hit "The Boy Is Mine."

During the song, the R&B vet changed the lyrics of "The boy is mine" to "The song is mine," a clear jab at Monica who originally collaborated on the song with her.

"The Boy is Mine" was released as a joint single in May of 1998 and is included in the Brandy's second album never say never, a month later. In July, 1998, Monica was also released the track as the first single from their second effort, appropriately titled " The Boy is Mine.

The song was the first #1 Hot 100 hit for both artists, and he spent 13 weeks at the top of the table. Both singers also won a Grammy Award in the Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group category at the 1999 Grammy Awards.

It is believed that part of the song into a success due to the constant rumors that the two singers had an understanding of the rivalry. Monica apparently had a problem with Brandy performing the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno without it, and the Brandy was reportedly upset that Monica used the song title for the name of your album.

The singers of the administrators released a joint statement on the fight after the reports began to circulate claiming that almost had a physical altercation during a rehearsal for the MTV Video Music Awards in September of 1998. Their managers blamed the media and called the behavior "disturbing" and the thought of the "constant negativity [was] totally unfair".

Although Brandy and Monica reunited in "it All Belongs To me" in the year 2012, it seems that Brandy still has some unfinished business.
