Video: Brandy and Monica – ‘It All Belongs to Me’

Brandy and Monica

Fourteen years after topping the charts with their Grammy-winning hit “The Boy Is Mine,” Brandy and Monica are back and better than ever in the Chris Robinson-directed video for “It All Belongs to Me,” dedicated to the late Whitney Houston.

But they’re no longer the feuding teenagers from the ’90s. The divas join forces to kick their no-good men to the curb, reclaiming their pricey possessions including cars, clothes, and computers. And they look damn good doing it—dressed in designer wardrobes as they haul their stuff out of a fancy crib before blowing up a vintage Porsche.

“It is not anything like ‘The Boy Is Mine,’” Monica told Atlanta’s V-103. “At this point, this is where you’re taking your power back and we gon’ come together. This is totally different than that era and I hope it speaks to all the people who are making diss tracks and going hard on each other. Come together and watch the numbers move.”

The Rico Love-produced duet will appear on Monica’s seventh album New Life, due April 10, and Brandy’s RCA/Chameleon debut Two Eleven, coming this June.

    @Debby,

    LOL….Seriously???!! No need to spew such lies! You can be a fan of one of the ladies, but that doesn’t mean you have to try and degrade the other. Grow up and get a clue! What you said was SO far from reality! If you followed Bran, you would know that! NEXT!

    On the other hand, they BOTH looked amazing and the video is great!

    @Debby, you don’t even know her. So, that was really irrelevant haha.

    @Debby, Brandy is super nice and relatable. She acts like she knows you. I never met Monica, but she seems cool in interviews.

    Anyway, they look gorgeous in this video. Like how this progressed from “Boy is Mine” with them working together from beginning to take guy down. I think they should’ve added a cinematic part, with some acting, but they shot this days after Whitney Houston died so that’d be tough at that moment.

    the video made the song a lot better. great to see them collaborating again. still not crazy about the song though.

    ughreally Reply:

    @ed, get the song on itunes. It sounds best when unedited. More aggressive with them really hit the curse word on the chorus.

    I only played it once or twice on computer, but when I added it to my mp3 I just repeat it over and over. I love it now.

    @RobbieRo,

    LOL I COULD keep them to myself, but seeing as how we all have the right to post comments, I think I’ll be doin’ just that until my beautiful typing fingers break.

    You are right! Opinions are like asshole…and seein how it’s simply YOUR opinion that I’m an asshole…you kind of just called yourself out. Think about it…

    Next time use kindness instead of trying to insult people. I’ll tell you like I’ve told many other: As soon as you have to throw insults, you’ve already lost your credibility in the discussion and make yourself look like a immature child who can’t carry a conversation without saying: Poopy-face.

    If I was wrong, you could’ve just said, “Hey, I think you misunderstood me.” Be a lady. It’s such a good look. And This way, you not only look like a lady and your karma will pay off in the end!

    Smile, okay? It’s just a blog. Comments shouldn’t upset you to the point where you lose dignity in the conversation.

  22. Hmmmmmm

    The video was predictable. The song is dope, both Brandy and Monica did their thing but the thing that bothers me is that Brandy just isn’t believable. Its like she’s acting, and I want to see more feeling. Feel the music. The thing that makes Mary J Blige and what made Whitney Houston so believable was you could tell they were feeling the music deep inside their soul. Not just mouthing the lyrics that Rico Love wrote for them. Feel the music and give me some passion is all I’m saying.

    Song is dope though

    [Reply]

    Colin Reply:

    @Hmmmmmm,

    You do remember that this vid was shot just a couple days after Whitney’s passing, dont you? You do know that they were BOTH devastated and grieving?! Imagine how hard that must have been for BOTH of them to try and fully commit to an emotive interpretation of the song during this shoot, given such a tragedy.

    You can tell they were being light, smiling, and just trying to have fun under the circumstances. I commend them for their strength and performance…I think they BOTH did GREAT actually!!!

    Loved the video. They both looked good & did their thing. Of course thou I’m more of a Monica fan & she never stops slaying me. But Brandy did her thang too. I already pre-ordered Monica’s album & I’m gonna get Brandy’s too. Both talented lady’s, I just wish the fans would stop arguing & understand it’s ok to have a preference, but it’s no reason to pit one against another & tear the other time. But clearly Monica & Brandy were the only mature ones to put their ‘non-existence’ difference aside & be women about it & work together. I love Monica’s sass in the vid & her fashion. Brandy looked stunning too. Vocally Brandy killed the lower register & the harmonies, Monica took the top & killed & did some great runs & a lil head voice around the end, great balance. They sounded great & work great together.

    Good Video. But, they’ve shown so many clips of the video until it wasn’t even that much left to see when it premiered.

    Both women look very classy and sophisticated. This is a good aesthetic representation of R&B – the wardrobe selections sort of reminiscent of the 1960′s and 70′s. :)

    I think Monica could have done the video alone. Brandy seems a lil washed up. I guess she needs to what she gotta do to make a come back and get that bread. Doesn’t the song kinda remind you of irreplaceable by Beyonce. I just don’t think it takes two people to say or do what they did and I’d pick Monica to be the one and only!

    YES!! Love it!!! They both sound and look amazing!! The video is awesome! I was cracking up at the end. Brandy and Monica vocally kill this record. I love to hear their voices together going back and forth. There’s just something amazing about having great artist collaborate with one another. Magic! I’m gonna watch this one over and over. Can’t wait to get their albums! :)

    I am STANLIED OUT, for Brandy but I can’t even front, they complimented each other’s level of beauty, performance and vocal. This was a home run on their behalf.

  43. KJW22

    Do ya’ll hear Brandy’s lower register in this song? Like her runs & vibrato are just amazing. Of course Monica can blow & we always pay her props, but people play Brandy like she hasn’t been a viable voice in this industry & as far as vocal control & true knowledge of her instrument, she runs circles around so many!

    I love this song, and I’ve said this since it came out. Brandy out shined Monica on this record, and she out shined her in the video too. Brandy looked incredible, and her voice on this record impressed me. This was suppose to push Monica’s album over the edge, which I think it will…but really this put Brandy back on the map. I see Brandy really making a huge comeback.

    The video is not original! It falls in an era where they are promoting reactions from women to join together when you find out your man isn’t right, instead of becoming enemies! Not knocking the effort, I agree with the movement! Also, it asked for replies (opinions), why when people comment good/bad, the people with dislikes are ridiculed for their comment? This is an example of how our world is so full of less leaders and more followers, just cause of the reactions of others that are in disagreement, many people choose to not express true feelings! COME TOGETHER PEOPLE, SINCE WHEN DOES WORDS SHED BLOOD?

    @Qui,

    Well said. It is ashame that people aren’t able to express themselves. But, I will say that at least some people are diagreeing respectcully.

    It is a boring world when everybody agrees. I just think we have a hard time agreeing to disagree. Some people feel like they’ve lost something if they allow other people to feel what they feel. As long as it’s respectful, who cares? But I hear you.
