The “Top of the World” hitmaker posted a photo of her and Janet to her Instagram account and she wasn’t shy about admitting that she was fangirling in the moment.

The two singers smiled in the photo while looking directly into the camera lens, flashing their pearly whites. They looked really happy to be in each other’s company which made the photo special for their fans to see.

Janet sported an all-black comfy look, wearing a plain sweater and baggy sweatpants. She rocked black-and-white Converse-looking platform sneakers and accessorized herself with a thin gold necklace. She wore her long, curly dark hair down and applied a red lip.

Brandy, on the other hand, was full of color. She stunned in a multi-colored coat that had multiple flower patterns on it. She paired the look with blue, black, and white sneakers and rocked her hair in braids. She wore an orange headscarf and had a bindi on her forehead.

“The power in this photo. Whew,” one user wrote.

“My two favorite artists of all time!” another shared.

“Two legends in one pic,” a third fan remarked.
