Brandy and Monica are taking fans back to 1998 with their newest song. 

The R&B divas who collaborated on the ‘90s hit “The Boy Is Mine,” are joining Ariana Grande for a remix of her song of the same name. Grande’s version of “The Boy Is Mine” is not a cover of the original song, but instead reimagines the R&B classic that topped Billboard charts, Grande said in an Apple Music interview. Brandy announced the exciting news about the remix on Monday in an Instagram post

“Ariana Grande – The Boy Is Mine Remix with Brandy & Monica out JUNE 21! Pre-save link in my bio,” the “I Wanna Be Down” singer wrote, alongside the Catwoman-themed video teaser. 

Grande posted the same video on her Instagram page, where she also thanked Brandy and Monica for joining the remix of her song.
