Everyone stop panicking.
Jessie J has confirmed that she and Ariana Grande will not be recording a remake of Brandy and Monica's hit song 'The Boy Is Mine.'
The two stars were said to be putting together a remake of the classic 1990s track for a special project that producer Rodney 'Darkchild' Jerkins was working on.
"Neither of us have agreed" Jessie J said at the American Music Awards. "Sadly people are believing it. I spoke to Brandy and I was like, 'No, it's not happening'".
Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief.

I don't deny that Jessie & Ariana have phenomenal voices but there is absolutely NO NEED for a remake of The Boy Is Mine. Abomination.— Cath (@Catherrinnee) November 11, 2014

Meanwhile, Darkchild also revealed that Sam Smith will be covering Whitney Houston's 'It's Not Right, But It's OK, on the forthcoming album. Seeing as Sam Smith did such an incredible job on the last Whitney hit he covered, there appears to have been few complaints on that front.
