Ariana Grande, Brandy, and Monica: A Reunion for the Ages with 'The Boy Is Mine' Remix

The RnB world has been set alight once more as Ariana Grande, along with legends Brandy and Monica, have released a transformative remix of the classic hit, 'The Boy Is Mine'.

AceShowbiz - The R&B reunion for the ages has finally arrived, thanks to Ariana Grande! On Friday, June 21, the pop star, 30, released a remix of her "Eternal Sunshine" track "The Boy Is Mine" featuring Brandy and Monica, who originally put out their R&B classic in 1998. The collaboration was officially announced earlier in the week with Grande sharing a teaser on Instagram, writing, "i ... cannot believe this is real (i don't know if i will even long after it's out)."

The new version of "The Boy Is Mine" opens with Brandy's vocals, delivering the fresh lyrics: "How can it be? You and me, might be meant to be, can't unsee it, but I don't wanna cause no scene. I'm usually so unproblematic, so independent, tell me why, Cause the boy is mine, mine." Following Grande's chorus, Monica, 43, layered her soulful voice on the next verse, making the harmonies and melodies even richer.

The black-and-white lyric video accompanying the song adds an extra layer of intrigue with visuals including a newspaper, comic book, and TV screens displaying the lyrics and pictures of the trio.

In the official music video, Brandy and Monica also make cameo appearances as news anchors, discussing a fictional mayor's press conference, played by "You" star Penn Badgley. This stylistic choice preserves elements from the original while injecting new energy, making it a unique visual experience.

In a heartfelt message on Instagram, Grande expressed her gratitude for the collaboration, "My deepest and sincerest thank you to Brandy and Monica, not only for joining me for this moment, but for your generosity, your kindness, and for the countless ways in which you have inspired me."

Both Brandy and Monica mirrored her enthusiasm, praising Grande's musical talent and expressing their joy in participating.

This release marks the first time Brandy and Monica have musically reunited since their 2020 "Verzuz" battle. Reflecting on their past, Monica previously mentioned, "People were putting us against each other before we ever were in the same room." This collaboration not only revives a classic but also symbolizes a newfound camaraderie between the iconic singers.

"The Boy Is Mine" remix is not just a song; it is a statement, a bridge between past and present, revitalizing the essence of R&B for a new generation. With Grande leading the charge and Brandy and Monica by her side, this collaboration is bound to inspire both fans and artists alike.
