Monica classic song

Today Twitter was upset to find out that Ariana Grande and Jessie J were going to rework Brandy and Monica’s classic song, “The Boy is Mine.” While it’s the doing of man behind the lyrics, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, it still upset many fans. Not downplaying neither Jessie nor Ariana’s vocals, but many feel why touch the classic song that gave both Mo and Brandy their first Grammy.

When it comes to classic tracks, we aren’t sure they should be tampered with to fit the sound and mold of the newer generation. Here are 45 other songs that we feel should never be reworked.
