Monica Isn’t Sure About Doing "Verzuz" Battle But Would Celebrate Catalogs With Brandy

Monica would participate in a “battle” of sorts with Brandy as long as it’s a celebration of music, like that of Teddy Riley & Babyface.

For decades, people have been trying to pit and against each other. The two R&B sensations saw the rise of their careers around the same time, and after they collaborated on “The Boy is Mine,” there were rumors that the and in real life. While there have been stories shared about the singers not getting along in the past, over the years they’ve seemed to mend any lingering animosities. With the ever-growing popularity of Verzuz battles taking over social media people want to know if one day Monica will take a turn and face-off with another artist—specifically, Brandy.

“I doubt it,” Monica told The Morning Culture. “…I understand the idea of it, and I think it’s really, really entertaining. And it is an incredible idea. Now, what I do like, is it’s kind of turning into a celebration. I can handle a celebration. I think battles—one thing that has happened to me my whole career is being put against someone else that I’m not even remotely similar to. I think the reality is that us being polar opposites makes it dope. I tell people all the time, the only battle or Verzuz they want to see with me is me against Brandy.”

Monica added, “The reality is, people have put us against each other for 20-something years. The reality is that I think ‘The Boy is Mine’ is such a phenomenal record because we’re polar opposites. I think that’s dope. She’s one of the greatest artists of my time as well. Can we do a celebration or something of that sort? That would be the only thing that  because I’ve been trying to tell people for 25 years, ‘You can like both, my G! You’re gonna turn this into 1998 all over again and I have no interest in that.'”
