Monica Discusses Former Feud with Brandy Ahead of Their 'Verzuz' Battle

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.”

“I was a little bit lost eight years ago musically, creatively, spiritually…I had to pull myself together, I had to pull it all together and make it all make sense,” she explained.

Back in 2006, she was involved in a car accident that sadly killed a 38-year-old woman. Brandy recalled feeling like her pain was insurmountable, and contemplated suicide.

“I remember laying in bed super depressed. I [told] myself, ‘So, you’re just going to go out like this? That’s wack. You have a daughter. If you can’t do it for yourself, do it for her because this is not the way to leave a mark in her life,’” she said of her now 18-year-old daughter Sy’rai.

“If Sy’rai wasn’t here, I wouldn’t be either. The place that I was in, it just felt like I wasn’t going to make it through.”

She also spoke about her experience with fame at an early age, and what happened…

During the conversation, Brandy told Apple Music about her relationship to fame.

“It’s not as fun as it used to be. Things have definitely changed but I’m blessed to still have the passion for music, and I definitely have a lot of love out there for me and I feel like I have a responsibility to inspire people and to bless people with music,” she said.

“My want for fame and my want for popularity — that doesn’t satisfy me. Do I need people to notice me in Target? Do I need people to recognize me at Ralphs? I don’t have an ego in that way — I’m not addicted to fame. I know what fame did to me early on. I went through a lot,” she continued.

“It took me forever to complete this album, and to finally complete it after 8 years, it just felt like I was whole, and that this is something I can be proud of. I feel like I can breathe now,” she said of recording and releasing B7. Click here to listen to the interview.
