What's the story?

Fourteen years after their 1998 Grammy-winning hit "The Boy is Mine," still-young stars Monica and Brandy reunite to lay down the law to a cheating ex in their duet, "IT ALL BELONGS TO ME." In the video the two women get revenge by blowing up their ex's car. The single is on Monica's seventh album, New Life.

Is it any good?


It's hard to believe that it's been 14 years since Monica and Brandy's R&B hit "The Boy is Mine," considering that they're both still so young. Although not as catchy as their previous collaboration, "It All Belongs to Me" still showcases their strong vocals in a bluesy, R&B track about a two-timin', no-good man. The video (dedicated to their late idol, Whitney Houston) shows the two thirtysomething divas dressed in their finest, showing their cheatin' ex that he messed with the wrong women. "You must be dumb, you must be trippin', you must be crazy, to think imma let you off that easy." Not the best message for sure, but entertaining nonetheless.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about relationships. What are some qualities of a good, healthy relationship or friendship? What are signs of an unhealthy one?

  • Do you think that Monica and Brandy have a positive image? Why or why not? What makes a celebrity a positive role model? What makes someone a poor role model? Can you think of celebrities who are good examples of each?

  • Why would these R&B stars team up again after so many years? Is it a good idea to try to recapture or build on the past?
