Bad news if you were hoping to see Brandy and Monica face off in Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s Verzuz IG series. It’s not happening.  Brandy told an Atlanta radio station that Monica turned it down.  “I heard that she doesn’t wanna do it,” she said. “The last thing I heard is she pretty much turned it down, she didn’t want to be a part of that. But I understand. But I love what they’ve been doing with that platform. I think it’s just a great way to share music and celebrate. I mean the way Jill [Scott] and Erykah [Badu] did it, that’s the way to do it. Even Teddy [Riley] and Babyface, they were really just … it was great.”

Monica has publicly said she wasn’t interested in “battling” anyone saying most of her career she’s been pinned against people.
