Back in the 90s, there was no greater rite of passage than choosing sides and reciting the lyrics to the Rodney Jerkins-produced female anthem “The Boy Is Mine.”

“You be Brandy and I’ll be Monica,” (I was totally a Monica type of chick) is sort of how the conversation would go and then — cue the theatrics — eye rolls, hair flips and major neck action while lip syncing along to the brilliant lyrics. “You need to give it up/ had about enough/ it’s not hard to see, the boy is mine.” Sigh. The soundtrack to every teenage fantasy.
