Brandy and Monica went head to head for a VERZUZ battle tonight which was an instant hit on all live stream channels. Monica also shared a new song called ‘Trenches‘ featuring Lil Baby and the two promised an upcoming joint tour.
Before the battle started, the two women, who were present in the same room, paid a tribute to the Black Panther Chadwick Boseman. Soon after, vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris called in to thank them for supporting Michelle Obama’s “When We All Vote” registration initiative and professed her love for their music.
More than 1.1 million people tuned in to watch VERZUZ on their Instagram Live channel. They also addressed the drama around their relationship in the past, revealing that they hadn’t spoken to each other in almost 8 years before this event. Brandy said to Monica: “And, I just need you to know that I have the utmost love and respect for you as well, no matter the times where it seemed like I didn’t.”
Monica talked about rapper C-Murder’s incarceration and prison reform while Brandy said she wanted to be a part of the movement. Brandy pressed the button on tracks like ‘Baby”, ‘Almost Doesn’t Count’, ‘Full Moon’ and even shared a poem for some of the loved ones she’s lost.
