“It All Belongs to Me” - Brandy & Monica
You know you’re a product of the nineties when you’re watching Monica in a music video on BET and ask out loud, “Where’s Brandy?” Lucky for me, Brandy was not far behind as the two vocalists reunited for a little less hostile duet in “It All Belongs to Me”. No longer are they attitude battling over who the boy belongs to but joining forces to claim ownership over everything the boy believes is his post-breakup. Oh, classic.
This is not a song that will last for ages, especially with it’s beating-over-the-head of pop culture (i.e. MacBook, Facebook, etc.). However, this duo takes me back to a time when a small, dweeby white girl just wanted to gain some kind of street cred by memorizing sugar-coated R&B songs. And that, folks, is as cool as I get.
