According to Nelly Furtado who heard it from Rodney Jerkins, Brandy and Monica had to have equal billing when it came to ad-libs on 'The Boy Is Mine'.
Talking to the BBC about why she wanted to work with Jerkins on her new album, the 'Te Busqué' songstress explained: "One track that he did that I loved was 'The Boy Is Mine' with Brandy and Monica. He was telling me about the ad-libs — how they had to be equal and fair."
"They had to count out the number of lines to make sure everybody had the same amount," she gossiped. "I love hearing that kind of stuff."
