Posted on Aug 9, 2017 04:55pm



In 1998, two famous solo singers, who both went by solo names, teamed up to record the song, "The Boy is Mine." Brandy and Monica's massive hit hasn't been in heavy rotation of late, but when everyone hears The Late Late Show with James Corden's new parody version, the single has a chance to blow up again.

Last night, James and Jeffery Tambor stepped in for the Brandy and Monica roles. The object of their mutual affection? The Star Wars and Detroit star, John Boyega.

Check out the video for "The Boyega Is Mine" above and read the full lyrics below.

JAMES:
Excuse me. Can I please talk to you for a minute?

JEFFREY:
Uh huh, sure. You know, you sound kinda familiar.

JAMES:
Yeah, you do, too... but um, I just wanted to know, do you know somebody named... you know his name.

JEFFREY:
Oh yeah, definitely. I know his name.

JAMES:
I just want to let you know that he's mine.

JEFFREY:
Heh... no, no. He's mine.

TOGETHER:
You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
The Boyega is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The Boyega is mine

JAMES:
I think it's time we got this straight
Let's sit and talk face to face
There is no way you could mistake
For your man - are you insane?

JEFFREY:
You see I know that you may be
Just a bit jealous of me
But you're blind if you can't see
That his love is all in me

TOGETHER:
You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
The Boyega is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The Boyega is mine

JAMES:
Must you do the things you do
Keep on acting like a fool
You need to know it's me, not you
And if you didn't know it, girl, it's true

JEFFREY:
I think that you should realize
And try to understand why
He is a part of my life
I know it's killing you inside

TOGETHER:
You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
John Boyega is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The Boyega is mine

JEFFREY:
Not yours

JAMES:
But mine

JEFFREY:
Not yours

JAMES:
But mine

JEFFREY:
Not yours

JAMES:
But mine

TOGETHER:
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The Boyega is mine
