In New Orleans, at the 2018 Essence Festival Brandy hit the stage and sang her (and Monica’s) hit song from 1998 “The Boy is Mine.” The song has always been a joint single, appearing on both Brandy’s ‘Never Say Never’ as well as serving as the lead song from Monica’s album ‘The Boy Is Mine.’

While performing towards the end Brandy took shots at her duet partner, Monica. Via B Scott, “Brandy took it upon herself to switch up the words from “the boy is mine” to “the song is mine.” The song was the first #1 Hot 100 hit for both artists and spent 13 weeks at the top of the charts.

In previous years, Monica reportedly had an issue with Brandy performing the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno without her, and Brandy was reportedly upset that Monica used the song’s titled for the name of her album. Fans took their frustration to Twitter because they were confused by Brandy’s action and wasted no time voicing their opinions.
