Brandy & Monica Seem to Have Buried the Hatchet as They Plan to Go on Tour after Feud
Brandy and Monica are living proof that sometimes, even the worst feuds can turn good. The two singers are reportedly going on tour together with some other female performers, which may prove that they've finally learned to put their past behind and start anew.
Brandy and Monica are set to join other popular Black female artistsa as part of Live Nation Urban's concert series entitled "Femme It Forward." The concert series is set to feature all-female live performances, panels, comedy shows, and more. It will be benefiting organizations that focus on the advancement of women.
Aside from Brandy and Monica, other artists announced to be included are Cardi B, Teyana Taylor, Jill Scott, City Girls, Ashanti, Mya, Keri Hilson, Faith Evans, Jorja Smith, Amerie, and more. The concert series begins in August and runs through October, but more dates will likely be added depending on the tour's success.
The two women mentioned that they will be performing together on July 19 and 20, and October 17 in LA, Concor, and Dalas, where they will be headlining. They will be joined by Mya, Keri Hilson, Lil Mo, Amerie, and Ashanti, which will definitely throw people back to the '90s and early '00s with their hit songs.
Brandy and Monica haven't been in good terms since the year 1998, even getting into a physical altercation in the same year. They decided to let things go, saying they'd rather bury tha hatchet for their growing children who may be affected by the feud.
However, when they were in talks about doing some shows together to promote their single "It All Belongs To Me," things just got bad again.
In a 2012 interview by Brandy, she said sometimes, it's as easy as accepting that the two of them are in different places when it comes to their music..
“I just honestly think Monica and I are in a different place with our music. And my vibe is a little different this time around so I don’t know. I definitely feel like the fans would want a tour from us, but I don’t know, I just feel like I’m being pulled in a different direction. I’m definitely still open to it, but right now I’m looking in a different way right now for me.”
However, Monica seems to have tried to be the better person through the years, making it seem as if there was just one-sided beef between the two of them.
“I want to thank my sisters in music, they started the same time I did,” she said. “How many of y’all love and adore the late, great Aaliyah? She was special. One in a million for sure. And I want y’all to make some noise for the woman — this is the only Grammy I ever won in my whole life. Only time they called a Black girl from the country to the big stage was with this amazing person, Ms. Brandy Norwood. See the thing is, if we lift each other up, we can do a whole lot. This is in honor of everyone lifting each other up. I’m going to do this song for my sisters tonight, for the one that’s absent and the one that’s still traveling around the world doing her thing.”
Now, it seems they are finally putting an end to this long feud, hoping to just entertain their fans together and give them stellar performances with the rest of the artists.
