Ariana Grande & Jessie J to re-record “The Boy Is Mine”

Producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins says the “Bang Bang” singers are going to cover the 1998 Monica and Brandy classic

Once upon a time, Monica and Brandy turned their much-presumed rivalry into a number-one hit with “The Boy Is Mine.” Now, 16 years later, the producer of that song says he’s going to get Ariana Grande and Jessie J to fight over the same guy, too — at least in song.

To celebrate his 20 years in music, producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins is recruiting new artists to cover some of his biggest hits. That means two-thirds of the “Bang Bang” team — it’s not too late to get Nicki Minaj on the track, is it? — will take on the ’90s classic. Meanwhile, “Stay With Me” crooner Sam Smith has already called dibs on Whitney Houston’s “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay,” which, for the uninitiated, is sort of like the Serial podcast if the Serial podcast were actually an R&B hit. (She uses receipts and phone records to solve the mystery of a lying lover!)

” The Boy Is Mine “, is a classic 90s played by Brandy and Monica .  The music bursted in the United States and is considered one of the best duets of all time. Check out the original version:

Ariana Grande talks with Entertainment Tonight

Ariana Grande, current holder of three singles in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, gave an interview to American television program “Entertainment Tonight” and talked about various subjects, among them her new album coming, anxiety for the performances on the VMAs, his brother Frankie in Big Brother and more!

Interviewer: What is the quality you most love in Nicki Minaj and Jessie J?
Ariana: I love Nicki’s personality. Love the personality of Jessie. They are so different but both have much feeling. They are great, I love them very much. Jessie sings all the time, and this is my favorite part, because I also sing all the time. And Nicki is hilarious, I love her she is so sassy.
E: Will you dance with them? I heard that when you and Chris (Brown) did a video together, you danced a little pointe (ballet technique used in).
A: It has a bit of that video pointe. I did dance when I was younger, and did a bit of pointe school. I was the dance team. Yeah, that’s one thing people do not know about me, I’ve been on a dance team. And it was, like, the first time I danced on pointe six or seven years.
E: And you will do something at the VMAs?
The Pointe? No, I think not. Just that (Ariana pretending to dance ballet while singing Break Free).
E: So it will not be at the VMAs?
A: No!
E: Her brother is now the center of attention in Big Brother. You spoke with Frankie?
A: No we can not talk to them!
E: No kind of secret messages or something?
A: No, they are not mobile. I think he’s fine now, because it is the leader of the house.
E: Do you miss him every day? At all times?
A: Yes, let absolutamente.Eu all screens connected seeing everything he is doing. “What is he doing now?”
E: I remember when we were on the red carpet of the Grammys together, and you were nervous and anxious. Do you still worry about it? Has a new girl here ready to go through red carpet again?
A: So I’m still not so good on red carpets, it’s something I’m trying to improve. But I get so excited as before … That day was so … They spread a rumor that I was crying, but I was not. I rubbed a hand in the eye for a moment and took a picture. And they used this photo to mention that I was crying, but I was not. Definitely was not crying.

Ariana Grande talks ‘Bang Bang’ with Attitude

Problem hit-maker Ariana Grande has shared a few teasers about her forthcoming collaboration with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, saying it sounds like a song from Disney’s Hercules.

The collaboration, titled Bang Bang, will serve as the lead single from Jessie J’s upcoming third album and will also appear on the Deluxe Edition of Grande’s new album My Everything. It’s scheduled to premiere on July 29.

Recalling her time recording the track with producers Max Martin and Savan Kotecha, Grande told Attitude: “I said whoever sings the chorus needs to be like three soul divas. I wanted it to sound like Hercules – like the muses in Hercules.”

“Fierce gospel singing is what I wanted,” Grande continued. “I wanted it to sound like that, and it literally ended up sounding like it came out of a fierce music project written by [renowned Disney songs composer] Alan Menken.”

Describing the sound of the finished track, Grande said: “To me it sounds very theatrical and campy and I think it’s very sassy, fun and tongue-in-cheek.”

“And Jessie is wailing which is my favourite bit!” she added.
