Jessie J has silenced reports suggesting she is reteaming with Ariana Grande to record a remake of Brandy and Monica’s R&B classic “The Boy Is Mine”.
The song’s producer, Rodney Jerkins, recently revealed he was lining up a string of stars to rework hits from his discography to mark his 20th anniversary next year, and he claimed he had recruited the Bang Bang hitmakers to revamp the 1998 track.
He told HitsDailyDouble.com, “Next year is my 20-year anniversary and I’m doing a very special project. Some originals as well as reimagined hits. So for example, I’ll do the ‘The Boy Is Mine’ with Ariana and Jessie J.”
Jessie J has since distanced herself from the project, insisting she will not be involved because she is such a big fan of the original.
She tells Britain’s The Mirror newspaper, “Neither of us have agreed. Sadly people are believing it. I spoke to Brandy and I was like, ‘No, it’s not happening’. Monica and Brandy are the best!”
