Brandy and Monica gaves us the “Verzuz Battle” we have been waiting for! The two legendary singers who rose to fame as adolescents in the nineties are now fully grown women with rivaling musical catalogues and a history of personal beefs.

However, tonight, Brandy and Monica settled their issues–off-screen of course–and reached over 1.2 million viewers with their highly anticipated Verzuz Battle, creating a moods and moments none of us will ever forget!

Back and forth the ladies delivered hit after hit and bop after bop; which had many Generation X-ers and Millennials reconnecting with their childhood. From Brandy we heard hits like “What About Us?,” “Brokenhearted (the Wanye duet),” “Sittin’ On Top Of The World,” and more. Meanwhile Monica came just as heard with classics like “So Gone,” “4 U I Will,” “Everything To Me,” “First Night,” and more.

Naturally, the ladies dabbled in fun shade; reminiscing on the alleged slap down Monica gave Brandy in their youth, and their aforementioned off-screen heart to heart to clear the air. They apparently had not spoken to each other for eight years.  Nevertheless, their honesty and ability to forgive one another was endearing and an excellent example of how two people in a longstanding feud can heal one another.

 Honestly, their Verzuz Battle left us wanting a joint album from them. Brandy and Monica are magic together, and this is the closest match up in the history of the Instagram Live series. To us, there was no clear winner.

The positive commentary and feedback from thousands of celebrities and influencers; and over a million fans shows we definitely need R&B to make a comeback. The singers we have grown to know and love are good for more than just features and hooks. Brandy and Monica PLEASE go on tour! We will definitely buy tickets!
