Brandy Talks About Teaming With Monica

Brandy has been busy putting finishing touches on her upcoming album, and preparing to release the collection’s first single, a duet with another teen singing star, Monica.

“It’s about my boyfriend and the opponent I’m challenging is telling me that it’s her boyfriend when it’s really not,” Brandy recently told MTV News of the song, titled “The Boy Is Mine” [800k QuickTime] .

“She’s saying these words to get me jealous, to get me upset. She’s really jealous of me.” Of course, Brandy says that there’s no real rivalry between her and Monica, who she describes as her “little sister.”

The song will be released as a single on May 19, the video for the song debuted on MTV on Wednesday, and Brandy’s album, “Never Say Never,” will arrive in June.
