News of the long-awaited battle between the frenemies was announced by the Verzuz creators Swizz Beatz and Timbaland on Saturday. It’s set to go down Aug. 31 live from Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.
Back in May, Monica addressed the possibility of making a Verzuz appearance with Brandy, just as long as it was a “celebration” rather than a battle. She said she was hesitant to participate because she feared the public would once again try to pit her and Brandy against one another and reignite beef rumors.
“I understand the idea of [Verzuz] and I think it’s really, really entertaining and it is an incredible idea,” Monica told V-103. “Now what I do like is it’s kind of turning into a celebration. I can handle a celebration. One thing that has happened to me my whole career is being put against someone else that I’m not even remotely similar to. I think the reality is, us being polar opposites makes it dope.”
In other words, Monica is down for the get down. Are you?
