It looks like a bit of a break-up is in the cards for Brandy and Monica.
Even though the two saw some success with their latest duet, “It All Belongs To Me,” it doesn’t seem like we’ll see them perform it together or go on tour as some of the fans hoped any time soon. In an interview B-Rocka did with Bark Bite, she said the talks have pretty much died down:
“Honestly we haven’t really talked about it since we stopped promoting ‘It all Belongs To Me.’ I just honestly think Monica and I are in a different place with our music. And my vibe is a little different this time around so I don’t know. I definitely feel like the fans would want a tour from us, but I don’t know, I just feel like I’m being pulled in a different direction. I’m definitely still open to it, but right now I’m looking in a different way right now for me.”
I think I get it: Monica’s latest album New Life didn’t do well and Brandy is hoping for a different fate with her upcoming album Two Eleven so she doesn’t want to keep herself associated with someone whose album flopped when she might experience that same fate. But also, can these two stop trying to make this “friendship” happen? They’re not friends; they tried to be business partners so they could both find some new success in today’s industry but it isn’t working. Let’s let it go, ladies.
Would you pay to see Brandy and Monica together on tour? Can you fake a friendship for the sake of money?
