Did you know Monica and Brandy’s duet “The Boy Is Mine” hit the airwaves almost 14 years ago? (I officially feel older than dirt.) Well, the ladies have reunited for a new song called “It All Belongs To Me.”

I wanted to like it. I really did. But the lyrics are so disappointing. 

A sample:

I know you’re mad

Can’t take no more

But put that back 

That ain’t yours

Have a fit 

Slam the door

Leave them bags on the floor

That shit belongs to me

Those clothes, those cars, those rings

And that MacBook

That shit belongs to me

So log off your Facebook

It all belongs to me

I read this (by the always amusing Michael K over at Dlisted) and couldn’t think of anything more hilarious −or accurate− to say:

If I was listening to this boring mess in the car, I would’ve fallen asleep at the wheel, lost control and killed somebody. This sounds like it was written as the theme song for a Tyler Perrymovie after the producers scraped their dimes together and realized they can’t afford the rights to "Irreplaceable."

As for me… I’ll be taking it back to 1998 with “The Boy Is Mine.” And singing along, of course. You know it’s impossible not to.
