#TBT Brandy & Monica “The Boy Is Mine” Video (Aka 4 Minutes Of Perfection)

The year was 1998. Monica and Brandy were both in their prime and at the height of their careers. Before there was Britney vs. Christina and ‘NSYNC vs. Backstreet Boys there was Monica vs. Brandy. Like true classy ladies they joined forces and released a duet aptly titled “The Boy Is Mine.” The tune was a #1 hit for 13 weeks and was one of the highest selling singles of the ’90s. The video was all kinds of sassy genius with glorious ’90s outfits as the ladies hung out in their neighboring apartments and fought over two-timing Mekhi Phifer.

Brandy rocked a giant blue cloth choker to match her tube top.

Meanwhile next door Monica worked the bindi look like it was no big thang.

It was everything. Let this video and duet be an example to today’s stars. Super duets are the best. TSwift and Katy Perry. Do it! 1 Direction and Justin Bieber.. why not? Robin Thicke and Daft Punk and Justin Timberlake and Pharrell.. just schedule a world tour together already, ok?!
