Verzuz Inspired Moesha Playlist
For nearly 20 years, almost every 90’s kid held their breath for the moment when Brandy and Monica would join forces yet again. Well, last night was certainly that moment. Talk about doing it for the culture. Granted this wasn’t a full-on nostalgic performance where some of us desperately wanted Mekhi Phifer to emerge, but it was truly historical.
Over 3 million+ viewers joined to see the two living legends bring us back to the days where platform flip flops were the rage and numerous R&B songstress ruled the Billboard Hot 100. The amount of love shared between Brandy and Monica was immeasurable. These two ladies without a doubt acquired the highest viewed Verzuz Battle by far than any other collaboration. Most would agree that it was more so a trip down memory lane rather than a battle. In the words of Monica, “It was a celebration of music.”
With these occasional trips back to the 90’s from Moesha episodes now available on Netflix to last night’s Verzuz Battle, who else is in their feelings?
Be honest Moesha had us all in our journals pouring out doubts, boy problems, and gripes with our parents just pen to paper. Talk about life before tablets and laptops, right?
Back in the day, Moesha would have had an actual cassette mixtape to pair with her woes and frustrations. Nowadays, Moesha would have had a playlist to marry with those entries. For those of us over 25 can look back at some exes and attach a few songs to how they made us feel.
As a fun way to reflect on those past beaus of Mo-Tuh-The E-Tuh-The we compiled a playlist Moesha would have had with strictly only Brandy songs.
