Women everywhere will soon be singing the lyrics to Brandy and Monica's new breakup anthem "It All Belongs To Me" when kicking their boyfriends to the curb: "Have a fit. Slam the door. But leave them bags on the floor. That sh*t belongs to me," the R&B-pop princesses sing on the song's chorus. The fluttering piano ballad produced and written by Rico Wade is tougher and more humiliating to the male ego than Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable."
Brandy expects female listeners to love it. "It is a song that I think a lot of women can relate to," she said in an exclusive interview with Yahoo! Music. She added, "[Monica] and I [were] just trying to give our best vocals ever on a song. We just had a really good time just recording it, going back and forth. It was a lot of fun."
HEAR Brandy and Monica's "It All Belongs To Me":
Brandy and Monica first teamed up in the 1990s for 1998 Grammy award winning collab, "The Boy Is Mine." Brandy said she and Monica wanted to explore new ground with their latest joint effort.
"It's different than 'The Boy Is Mine,'" she said. "I think both Monica and I joke all the time about how we're too old to be fighting over some boys and men, whatever. We are too old for that. She's married; I'm taken. We don't need to be fighting over no boys. So it's not a continuation of 'The Boy Is Mine.'"
"It All Belongs To Me" will appear on Monica's new album, "New Life," scheduled for an April 10 release, and Brandy's yet-to-be-titled album due out this spring.
