LOS ANGELES, CA - DECEMBER 01: Singer Monica poses in the press room during the GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live at Club Nokia on December 1, 2010 in Los Angeles, California.

Despite speculations that fans made about Brandy and Monica’s interaction during their Verzuz battle on Monday night (Aug. 31), Monica says that she celebrates Brandy.

The singer took to Instagram on Tuesday night (Sept. 1) and made the declaration. “My Prayers have been said as well as Many of them answered!” Monica wrote on the social media platform.

“Communication & Compassion bridged a gap that not many will understand! I celebrate you [Brandy]… Your legacy, Music & Catalogue are undeniable!!”

The “Boy Is Mine’ singer then also plugged Brandy’s latest release B7, writing that it is “Available NOW…..”  As we previously reported, on Monday night (Aug. 31), Brandy and Monica went head to head during their Verzuz battle that was streamed on Instagram Live and Apple Music.

The Verzuz celebration was broadcasted live in Atlanta at Tyler Perry Studios, and the highly-lauded battle reached 1.2 million views. When the Verzuz session started the two singers briefly chatted about how long it had been since they’d been in the same room together.

“Listen, I’m excited. I’m excited that they get a chance to see us together. Believe it or not, it’s our first time in the same room for eight years,” Monica said to Brandy. “Eight or nine years. That’s too long,” Brandy added.

“Well, we’re changing it tonight,” Monica said. “We’re changing it tonight because I feel like we have so much to give and we have so many songs that we can share and I feel like so many people will be so happy and elated that we’re together,” Brandy said.
