Brandy and Monica were joined by special guest Kamala Harris during an eventful edition of the Verzuz series on Monday night. The duo, best known for their 1998 collaboration "The Boy Is Mine," reunited to celebrate their own solo back catalogs as well as donating proceeds to Michelle Obama’s non-profit When We All Vote.
Harris thanked the duo during her brief cameo, telling Brandy and Monica that " Our voice is our vote, right?" and adding: "I’ll be dancing and singing all night with you all.” Joe Biden's account was active too, dropping a waving emoji in the comment section.

Away from politics, Brandy and Monica went back-and-forth with their most beloved hits, including Monica's "Angel Of Mine" and "So Gone" as well as Brandy favorites "I Wanna Be Down" and "Have You Ever." Verzuz claimed to have broken their own record for live viewers on Instagram, with over 1.2m people watching on around the world.
Monica took advantage of the huge audience to debut new song "Trenches." The track is produced by The Neptunes and features Lil Baby. 2020 marks the 25 year anniversary of Monica's debut album Miss Thang.
The pair fell out following their hit single and, while the tension didn't appear to completely a thing of the past, both sides agreed that they love one another. “I really am a straight shooter and I really do admire what you do musically,” Monica said at one stage. Brandy responded, “I just need you to know that I have the utmost love and respect for you, no matter the times where it seemed like I didn’t.”
