Throwback Thursdays, do you all remember the popular song The Boy Is Mine recorded by Brandy and Monica? Of course! Who could forget those two sparring back and forth with each other as they staked claim to the man of their dreams.
Well according to Music News R&B star Monica has revealed her hit duet with Brandy sparked a real life rivalry between them in the late 1990s.
Oh the feud had nothing to do with romance it was deciding on who won the argument!
“It started off as brilliant marketing, and people started creating these skits, and then our fans divided, and it became this real thing,” Monica confessed in an interview.
“People are still asking, ‘Who got the boy?,’ and there was no boy! We played up the dramatics of it all, but we were 16 and 17! There was no boy, no beef.”
However, the rivalry didn’t last for long, and they even recorded another duet, It All Belongs to Me, in 2012. Now, Monica says they have learned to appreciate and respect each other’s careers nearly 18 years after their initial dispute.
