Brandy and Monica have reunited to support Ariana Grande’s new take on their classic hit collaboration from over 20 years ago.

On Friday, June 7, Grande released the music video for “The Boy Is Mine” from her Eternal Sunshine album, which came out earlier this year. This track re-imagines the 1998 hit by Brandy and Monica, which won them a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group.

The music video opens with Brandy and Monica as news anchors introducing a speech by a disheveled mayor, played by Penn Badgley.

Earlier this year, Monica addressed comments made by Ray J about a potential tour featuring her and Brandy.

During an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Ray J, known for his hit “Sexy Can I,” discussed the idea of a concert series with the two R&B stars. He had previously sparked the conversation during an Instagram Live session by Monica.

Monica responded on social media, saying, “I’ve been repeatedly contacted about interviews where my name and tour possibilities are being discussed. I’ve not received any contracts or calls about said tour. @rayj I’m kindly asking you to stop speaking on me in public! A private conversation would both be necessary and respectful! Brandy is a LEGEND with an extensive back catalog that I deeply respect and a voice sent from heaven.

“The conversation being had without her and I is beginning to muddy the waters severely! We are both consummate professionals who share a massive recording and an entire era! Please allow this to remain positive and beautiful! Neither of us should open; we should give someone else that opportunity and co-headline a massive shared stage if this is to ever happen. Any further conversation should be private!”

Monica added, “I get it, I will forever be the ‘bad guy’ in this situation and no one will EVER pay attention or read/listen to understand! I have no issues with anyone, but it’s not real unless there’s a deal!!! There’s no $100 million, no contract.

“Media outlets calling for comments about an imaginary tour unfairly spike the excitement of our supporters, insinuating that the hold-up of this (imaginary) deal is ME! The Breakfast Club interview is the first time I’ve acknowledged these antics! We both deserve the respect of real business being done.”
