Brandy & Monica Cover Ebony Mag, Interview + Photoshoot

Brandy and Monica aint playing this year. The two have graced the cover of June 2012 issue of Ebony Mag with beauty and glamour. In the magazine,  they dish out on love, their rivalry, how they healed it, career, future, friendship, family, etc…

Check out excerpts of their interview below

Monica on their partnership: “There’s something magical between us. We have different styles. Part of what makes our voices different is the fact that our personalities are so different. I may say it with a little more attitude; she may say it with sultriness, because she has an amazing tone, and the way she arranges things. [Our] two [styles] are compatible.”

Brandy on their reunion on It All Belongs To Me: “This idea just came about. I wanted to actually do a song with her a while back but it wasn’t the right time. We didn’t have the right song, or I wasn’t signed at the time. Monica was doing her own thing, so it was…we didn’t want to repeat ‘The Boy Is Mine.’”

Monica on her music back in the 90s: “I didn’t try to sing in a pop format. I sang soulfully and bluesy. When I look back on those times, I didn’t think about the music. I just sang it.”

Brandy on her 90s fame: “I was living my dream. Everything I wanted to do was happening, and more. I was like ‘Oh my God, I’m making it; I’m successful.’ But then, there was another side of me: a teenager who just wanted to hang out, wanted to have a crush on somebody without somebody [else] judging.”

Brandy on her daughter Sy’Rai: “She inspires me. She wants me to get out there.” Read more
