HAIM and Lizzo cover 90’s hit “The Boy is Mine” in Seattle: Watch

on April 06, 2018, 4:39pm

HAIM are currently touring the US in support of their 2017 album, Something To Tell You. While in Seattle last night, they treated the audience to a very cool throwback jam.

With the help of opening act Minneapolis rapper Lizzo, the Haim sisters rolled out a cover of the 1998 smash hit “The Boy is Mine”, originally by Monica and Brandy. Their rendition came with a special twist though; keeping with the theme of their female empowering “Sister Sister Sister” tour, HAIM and Lizzo swapped the track’s gender pronouns.

“The girl is mine,” HAIM wrote on Twitter today. “featuring @lizzo in seattle. (lizzo is brandy, este is monica). Check out fan-caught footage of the performance below.

For nostalgia’s sake, here’s the original:

Last week, Lizzo dropped an anthemic single called “Fitness”.
