Brandy is singlehandedly keeping the beef between her and Monica alive.

While performing at the 2018 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Brandy took the audience on a trip down memory lane by singing her 20-year-old hit single “The Boy Is Mine,” which also features Monica. During the song, Brandy switched the lyrics from “the boy is mine” to “the song is mine,” which was clearly meant to be shade towards Monica.

“The Boy Is Mine” was released as a joint single in May 1998 and was featured on Brandy’s second studio album Never Say Never. A month later, Monica also released the track as the lead single from her sophomore album titled The Boy Is Mine.

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