And here you thought Paris Hilton and LMFAO were the only classy pop pair-up with new music on the horizon! When word came last week that Brandy and Monica hit a studio together with Rico Love, naturally our eyebrows arched and we played “The Boy Is Mine” 37 times in one sitting. Now Billboard reports that the ladies’ joint single is called “It All Belongs To Me” (wait — which one is “me”?), and it will be released on February 6. The tune will appear on both Monica’s sixth album New Life (out March 6) and Brandy’s next LP (also out in March).
Last week Rico told Rap-Up.com the following about “It All Belongs To Me”:
“It’s a very soulful R&B song with pop sensibilities. I wanted to make sure I made it a classic R&B record, but I definitely wanted to make sure that it had enough appeal to cross over and become a Top 40 record. I wanted to include Beatles-sounding guitars. I made sure the melody was big enough for all genres and just a strong powerful vocal performance and strong content. I really don’t wanna give away too much because they wanna keep it under wraps as far as the title and the subject, but I can just say that it’s a very strong vocal that I got out of these girls and it’s a very strong subject. To say the least, it will be a shocker.”
Are you excited for Brandy and Monica’s “shocking” musical reunion?
