Ariana Grande to Reimagine Brandy and Monica’s ‘The Boy Is Mine’ on New Album: A Bad-Girl Anthem


Ariana Grande is set to shake up the music scene once again with her upcoming album, Eternal Sunshine, as she reveals plans to put her own spin on Brandy and Monica’s iconic 1998 hit, “The Boy Is Mine.” In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Grande expressed her excitement about reimagining the beloved ’90s anthem, citing her longstanding admiration for the song.

“I’ve always wanted to reimagine that in some kind of way,” Grande shared with Lowe, reflecting on her desire to pay homage to the timeless classic. The decision to tackle “The Boy Is Mine” comes after the unexpected viral success of her leaked track “Fantasize,” which explored themes of desire and rivalry in relationships.

Describing her version of the song as an “elevated” take on the original, Grande teased that it would resonate with fans who appreciate a “bad-girl anthem.” Drawing parallels between “Fantasize” and “The Boy Is Mine,” Grande sees her reinterpretation as a natural progression, offering a fresh perspective on the complexities of modern romance.

However, the announcement has sparked speculation on social media, particularly regarding Grande’s personal life. Amid rumors of a relationship with her Wicked co-star Ethan Slater, following her split from husband Dalton Gomez, fans are curious about the inspiration behind Grande’s musical choices.

While Grande has remained tight-lipped about her romantic affairs, she acknowledges the challenges of navigating public scrutiny. During an appearance on The Zach Sang Show, she hinted at the emotional turmoil of having her personal life dissected by the media and fans alike.

Despite the speculation, Grande remains focused on her artistic vision, eager to share her new album with the world. As the release date approaches, fans can anticipate a captivating blend of reality and fantasy in Eternal Sunshine, with Grande’s reinterpretation of “The Boy Is Mine” poised to leave a lasting impression on listeners.

With her distinctive voice and innovative approach to music, Ariana Grande continues to push boundaries and redefine pop culture, one song at a time.
