Monica and Brandy Plot Joint Tour

Monica and Brandy

Music is not the only thing Brandy and Monica are collaborating on. Following the release of their first record in 14 years, the former rivals are eyeing a joint tour for the summer.

Monica shared the news during an interview with Hot 93.7’s Jenny Boom Boom. “We’re dedicated to a tour in the summer,” she revealed.

They’ve put aside their differences and recently shot a video for their Rico Love-produced single “It All Belongs to Me,” which will appear on both of their upcoming albums. “Looking back at it, it was so silly and so juvenile that we’re dedicated to this song in a different way,” said Monica.

While nothing has been finalized, they’re optimistic that the tour will come to fruition. “We’re working on that now and trying to find different sponsors and people that will get us in the cities we feel like we should be in, so it’s not just as easy as saying it, but we’re actually putting forth the effort to try and make sure it happens.”

When “The Boy Is Mine” was released in 1998, they were unable to enjoy their success together. “We’re dedicated to this song in a different way because now we’re old enough to know that there’s strength in unity and there’s strength in numbers, so us coming together is actually enjoyable now,” explained Mo. “We both have kids, we talk about them, we have a good time—we didn’t do that the first time. We never experienced ‘The Boy Is Mine.’”

Monica’s seventh album New Life is due April 10, while Brandy’s RCA/Chameleon Records debut is scheduled for a May release.

    I think the strength in numbers thing and unity thing w/ RnB music coming from Monica and Brandy has alot to do w/ Destinys Child and there humbleness and sisterly love they’ve had throughout their careers and spoke about. IT’s the only reason Monica and Brandy can put aside their differences to do this.

    This tour will be amazing. I always loved Monica and grew to really like Brandy as well when the Full Moon album was released.

    What does Destiny’s Child have to do with anything. They haven’t been together in nearly 7 years.

    The unity thing with Monica and Brandy more likely has to do with them being mature, mothers and in their 30′s now. When “The Boy Is Mine” came out Monica was 17 and Brandy was 19. A lot of people can get in your ears and create tension when there is none there to begin with. That stuff doesn’t affect them anymore and they’ve both been through their traumas to humble them or put aside their differences. Monica witnessed her boyfriend commit suicide and Brandy had a big controversy with her baby’s daddy and the car accident. Sometimes it takes different life experiences to bring you back to a humble place.

    The way Monica and Brandy speak about “The Boy Is Mine” and them only performing it once considering it spent 13 weeks atop the charts suggest there was some tension, but not from them. Moreso from people in their ears, because they are both humble ladies.

    Destinys Child have show other female rnb singers how it’s done, throughout all the drama and nondrama those girls still show love for eachother….Letoya Lucket is always commenting on the love they’ve reignited. As for Latavia and Farrah, i’m sure the girls have prayed and sent them there graces as they hav had unsuccess!

    @savt1st, Child, please. Destiny’s Child ain’t got nothing to do with how r&b singers deal with one another. You giving them too much credit just because they are the bigger stars

    @shion, They do deserve credit – but have no relation to Brandy & Monica , nonetheless.

    shion Reply:

    @Real Issh, I’m saying credit as in being the model of female unity that all r&b singers are following from. R&B singers have sticking together and uniting for years.
