“The Girl Is Mine” is a song by British electronic music duo 99 Souls. A mash-up of Destiny’s Child‘s “Girl” (2004) and Brandy & Monica‘s “The Boy Is Mine” (1998), the funky house track was released on November 6th 2015 with a re-recorded vocal from Brandy.
The song peaked at number five on the UK Singles Chart.
The song was first released in December 2014, appearing on SoundCloud. While creators 99 Souls thought not much would come of it, the mash-up garnered 2.9 million streams within its first year of release. However, it was later taken down due to copyright violations. After the approval of both Brandy and Beyoncé, the song was released commercially in November of 2015.
