What Happened To Brandy’s Music Career?

1024x768f brandy1 What Happened To Brandys Music Career?

Brandy’s music career has come to a halt. As one of the rising stars of the 1990’s, she seemed primed to be amongst the most successful artists of the 2000’s. Yet, since the release of her ‘Full Moon’ LP in 2002, her music career has been on a steady decline, with her impact on the charts diminishing with each subsequent release. The root cause of this decrease in sales, however, remains a mystery.

Despite achieving critical success with her ‘Afrodisiac‘ and ‘Human’ albums, both records represent the lowest sales in Brandy’s entire career. Indeed, the latter of the two projects sold little over 200k units since it’s release on December 5th, 2008 although she made several major promotional appearances. It seems that regardless of how good her material may be or how hard she tries to promote it, the general public hasn’t paid attention.

There is no denying that Brandy will always have a presence on television, thanks to the massive success of her syndicated show ‘Moesha’ and her upcoming reality show, but her notable absence on radio continues to baffle both her fans and critics alike. Her brother Ray J offered his perspective on the issue, asserting that a lot of her problems result from her label conflicts. Nevertheless, many contend that EPIC Records gave her substantial support during her ‘Human’ campaign.

So what is real reason for the decline of Brandy’s chart success? Is it really her label situation? Or is it something else? Her material could certainly find a place on contemporary radio as ‘Human’ had all the elements of a mainstream hit. It’s anyone’s guess why people just aren’t interested.

What do you think is the problem with Brandy’s

music career?

    Ask all the pop tart artist out there now, not giving us any good music. Brandy still has fans. I dont’ think she will ever act crazy on stage, but when she does put out another album, she will stay true to her fans.

    Brandy’s boring, plain and simple. You’ve got Beyonce, you’ve got Rihanna, and you’ve got Lady Gaga…then you have Brandy. See the difference? There’s a fine line between certain female artists in today’s market. If you’re not on the right side of the fence, ain’t nobody gonna check for you. That’s the harsh reality of the situation with today’s female musicians, but it is what it is nevertheless.

    People don’t pay attention to REAL music nowadays. The only thing they pay attention is artists who are half naked, that’s it. Brandy’s music is undeniably amazing, ever album song of her is a classic. I think it’s just..people where paying attention to real artists back in the day but today it ain’t the same.

    The birth of the s** kitten singer happened – Brandy did not fit this mold.

    The whole fake marriage then and the way the ‘marriage’ was promoted to be so genuine.

    The episode of Punked with her and RayJ

    The accident

    Brandy’s general lack of confidence – if you don’t believe you are worth it, eventually that thought transfers to everyone.

    Well , Right Here ( Departed ) Was a huge massive radio hit here in belgium – France.
    You couldn’t pass a day without hearing the song !!
    I don’t think Brandy is over AT ALL , she might not sells 5.000.000 copies of her albums each day , but as long as she keep making good music ( Human was an incredible album ! ) I’m good , her talent is multi-color … She make me think of Michelle Williams who can do everything both Singing / Acting.

    As much as I LOVE Brandy I have to agree with youa and some of the posters above me…she is a bit boring now…she was one on a very short list of artist that I would go out and buy there album. However afro is the last album of hers I bought, and sadly she has fallin off my list and radar…tho I still download some songs that I find on the internet that I like, but that’s about it…

    I not sure about her singing career, but I know I’m still obsessed with Never Say Never. That album is a “Mona Lisa”, a “Masterpeice’. That entire album is great.

    @TruthWillPrevail-You said everything I wanted to say. People dont care about the music anymore. Folk now are so obsessed with looks, nakedness, and s** its ridiculous. If it aian’t shaking, gyrating, or popping it aian’t selling. I mean, I’m only 17yrs old, but most of the music I listen to is music from when I was in daycare/elementary. Music on the radio sounds to much alike and I just have to turn it off, and put my old music in the cd player. I swear I light up like a tree when that music comes on…

    Simply put.. Brandy needs to go back to real singing like she did in the bathroom. Take a page from Monica’s book. When one thing didn’t work, revert back to your fanbase, to the formula of what made her famous. People are CRYING out for fresh REAL R&B…. If Brandy gives that to us, she will be just fine

    He career declined when she got pregnant and couldn’t fully promote Full Moon, and when Moesha went on decline. I loved Full Moon, but this was a time, when she needed to be “relevant” because Brandy was the “everybody-everywhere-Black-Girl” in the United States before U-know-who. She wasn’t like Aaliyah or Monica who could sit out between cds, and return—even Aaliyah would have soundtrack hits.

    Brandy was on t.v. when her cd wasn’t out, she was modeling, movies, endorsements, and the whole bag. Her career was built on exposure, and the pre-Britney Spears “clean teens Christian buying” crowd. Once she grew up, and her flaws were revealed, she couldn’t fall back on Moesha…it was gone…Movies…she was a novice…Music…she had been replaced.

    And let’s not coun’t the Scientology and big lie on Oprah.

    BRANDY IS AMAZING-people just don’t appreciate good-real music anymore (from young artists) there are artists I can play EVER cd, & LOVE EVER SONG! Anita Baker, Sade, Toni Braxton, Brandy, & India Arie. REAL MUSIC! but it’s hard to be compared to the artists today, if u not as s***, & ALTHOUGH I LOVE BRNAYD & THINK SHES STUNNING, most people think shes ugly, & that plays a lot into people wanting to see your videos, hear u live, etc… I MUST say, they also put out the wrong singles, FULL MOON, AFRODISIAC, & HUMAN were ALL worthy of @ least 4 singles, def 6 possible GREAT TOP 100 songs. they just didnt play it rite…O well, I will BUY BRANDY til the day I DIE-SHES AWESUM!!!

    What happened to Brandy? The industry just changed on her, thats what. But her last album was a bit on the slumber side, though I gave her a pass for that because she was just coming off the tragedy. It was a bit too slow to compete with then Beyonce’s new release, Rihanna, and Ciara was coming back at the time too. I think the label at some point gave up on her. A lot of labels do that when then have another artist that is doing 3 times better, they devote their attention to them. Maybe it is best that she does leave and go somewhere else. Brandy still has an amazing voice and still has the talent, which is why I don’t think she should be doing this whole reality garbage with her brother, he can have that cause nobody really cares about his music. I think she just needs to stay on the grind with her music and one day she, along with Monica-will be back on the scene and people will be interested, cause eventually Beyonce’s amazon stage act will get stale.

    Brandy is definately not over! Brandy is still a Big force in the music industry. If you are to ask any artist today who their musical influences are (male or female) they will mention brandy as one of them. Brandy is known for her infectious Harmonies, good lyrics and CRAZYY ADLIBS! Personally her last album, left a bad taste, i wasnt too pleased with the direction she took, nonetheless i still respect her art. She should have stuck to her unique ingredients mastered and cooked what i call a true masterpiece like Full moon!

    Brandy is not the IT girl right now!!!!….but her time will come again! Just look at SADE, Maxwell etc. The Rhianna, Beyonce and Gaga hype will soon be over.

    Brandy is the BIZNESSS! i have faith that she will come out strong. She is smart , she knows what she’s doing. Listen to these songs and tell me that she is the TRUTH!

    I’d have to say like most celebrities who were once famous for a talent it has to be her reality TV Show. After that reality TV show about her pregnancy and her “husband” or whatever that drama was her music career fell short to that. That show came out in 2002 so it goes with the timeframe. She was gone for a little bit made an album did a tv show and every time fans or people see a celeb with a reality TV show their real career just falls off.

    @ Mushy_Love and Others:

    Im telling you, That’s REAL R&B music brandy puts out. I went to go buy Afrodesiac again the other day, I scratched my cd playing it so much. Never say Never, Full Moon, man..those are some classic albums. Thank God they still sell them b/c the music of today is autotuned to death.

    Beyonce was one of my favorites right along with Brandy, but after Dangerously in love, I don’t know what Happened. My husband brought me the Deluxe edition of I am sasha fierce..I don’t know where that album is now, I must have thrown it away, Im just being honest. Like I said before, She was taught well at how to stay on top of the game, but, I can say majority of the REAL fans, want to hear some REAL music. Hopefully when Brandy and Beyonce come out with another album, it will be what the fans want..THE FANS..because we are the consumers.

    Matter fact, Im bout to put on some brandy now, she aint’ goin’ nowhere! lol.

    Well said @alljokesaside. I love Bran and her artistry. Personally i think Epic was behind her but marketed her ALL wrong. Human was not completely and Urban/R&B album, yet they had her on BET and all the hood spots every chance they could get. Her music has transcended that audience. They shouldve thought more VH1 more adult contemporary. & Keep in mind, we in the US are NOT the only audience. Its no secret that the US audience is very fickle. But abroad particularly in Europe, once a start ALWAYS a star. Lastly, Idk who A&R’d her Human project/picked those singles, but I can think of atleast 3 OTHER radio ready songs on that album that wouldve absolutely garnered her attention. Oh well, hopefully things become more progressive for her music. Love her tho & real music heads know she’s secretly the truth.

    As a true fan of brandy, i have supported her throughout here career. I feel that she is affected largely by the trend of music. music right now has been cater to the pop-dance craze. if you arent making songs that have girls and guys shaking asses and throbbing you will have a very hard time to match sales. Brandy is a ture artist she is capable of doing things musically that many of hers peers can’t. Another aspect is that today as an artist you have to be a master of al trade.( shock appeal, fashion, movies, tv. great live presentation.) we the public arent just interested in your project but your personally lives, which is pretty sad, but true. in the 90’s brandy was everywhere, she did tv, movies, make-up contracts- and her music. if she wants to ever get to the level that she once was she would have to expose herself more than the promotional tours for a cd. she need to keep us interested.
    p.s i still enjoy every one of her project. Human- amazing album.

    You remember that song “Nothing” off of the Full moon album…GIRLL!!!!! I kill that album from start to finish, and she had it to where every song blended into the next, She’s serious, if people actually take the time to listen. Learn to just put artist in their category instead of comparing them–That’s how I look at it, if I want to party, there’s lady Gaga, If I want to be a diva, there’s beyonce, If I want real music, there’s Brandy, monica, Aaliyah..etc.

    s** sells and we support the status quo in order to succeed within it, despite our better judgement. she is too boring for what ppl want they want this spontaneous crazy crap but when an artist is to them self and produces good music that isnt enough for ppl you have to be mad extra and “artistic” to appeal to the masses its sad. simply fun music isnt enough nor is deep and meaningful music. when you try to become mad extra and be what ppl are into now ppl scream you trying too hard u had your time now its time to turn to the new it crowd. You dont have to have billboard #1’s sell millions to be a good artist you dont even have to appeal to the masses even having a few thousand fans is as good as millions but most ppl dont see it like that cause its all about numbers and labels will try to promote past big number making artists when their careers seem to be in decline but only for so long then they will let you go if they cant “bring u back” to former success what ever that is u dont need grammys or numba 1’s to be great but we create categories and use numbers to measure success its all about money and celebrity

    she just doesn’t make the type of music that radio plays nowadays.

    nothing wrong with that, as both afrodisiac and human were good albums, but she doesn’t have the type of flash that people like ke$ha, gaga, or beyonce have (all three who get big radio play).

    i’d much rather her remain true to herself and rock with her current fanbase instead of trying to play to what people want to hear.

    she will have a music career for as long as she wants one (she’ll never see the success she got in the 90s, but who from that era will?), but i see her kind of moving away from the music and eventually just focusing on the acting part.

    It’s funny how ppl are saying she’s boring and she cant hold up to Beyonce, Lady GaGa, & Rihanna (for those who said that, no disrespect to Rihanna or her fans, but really?!?) Now yes times have change but it’s not because Brandy’s material is lackluster or that she can’t hold her own vocally (she single handly shut the game down with “Acapella (Something Is Missing)” vocally I can’t see anyone out today getting down like that). The females in the industry today or a bunch of gimmicks (Beyonce and Lady GaGa can definitely sing but their whole “package” is a gimmick). Lady GaGa/Rihanna and their outfits, Beyonce and Sasha, fans today or more concerned about image and not music and substance. I mean don’t get me wrong “Single Ladies” was a great club song and deserved all the sucess in earned, but how in the hell does a song like that get Song Of the Year. That’s a songwriters award, the song wasn’t a masterpiece at all lyrically, the video was the phenonmanon. But I do think Brandy will be around for along while cuz when all the hype subsides, the only thing you can do is sing your songs. And I’m pretty sure alot of these artist will not be around in the long run, b/c out of the top 3 female gimmicks out right now, I only see Beyonce’s career outliving this gimmick phase. Just my opinion…

    i dont think theres a problem with Brandy’s career, the problem lies within all this electro popcorn music that is everywhere & no1 values real music anymore. Brandy is by far my favorite vocalist her adlibs are crazy and she has the most control over her voice. I still have the Human album on rotation its gr8 from beginning to end. The real music lovers & fans will continue to support her, but shes not gonna be in the spotlight like she use to be. Also, i feel its because she isnt eye candy, no1 is payin her mind i kno it sounds superficial but its true. Now a days ppl are focused more on the beauty and fashion instead of the music and quality its just ashame, but Brandy do u boo imma fan so ill support…cant wait to hear new material from her get em B.Rocka lol

    she’s just signed to a new label, new AUTHENTIC rapping skills and working with new producers to give her that ‘edge’ maintaing her original brandy sound

    Brandy can be her own worst enemy- plagued with personal and tabloid drama (for example, the fake marriage and car accident) along with a lackluster and self-conscious stage presence. I’m a huge Brandy fan. I think her voice is incredible and her ability to convey emotion through her singing is unparalleled in today’s industry. I would like to see her own a higher esteem and sense of self, and not try to be all things to all music lovers. She doesn’t need to be as raw as Beyonce, or as subtle as Alicia Keys, or as Urban as Keyshia Cole, or as stylish as Rhianna. She needs to be Brandy- an artist who conveys an emotional odyssey every time she sings. She should play up her strengths- her unique way of connecting to an audience like I’ve never seen from her generation of singers. Her ability to play effortlessly with her instrument (voice) as I’ve never heard from her generation of singers.

    During the Afrodisaic era, She was involved with Quenton Richardson and she missed a huge promotional event (2004 VMAS)… When we appeared in the commercials but was not there at all… Also, She was supposed to be on the Kanye West and Usher tour but was not there and the Who Is She 2 U (Remix) with Usher never came out in video form… It was just alot
    Then during Human, She waited way too long to promote Right Here (Departed)… Almost 3 months after its release… The album didnt have any uptempos… It was too Pop…

    Now believe me when I say… I love Brandy… and I think Shes great… But shes gotta really step it up for people to notice her again…

    I will always support her she’s not done, in fact those on this blog who say ppl are done should look at themselves for a moment and think about how people try to limit you and where you are going. Success is not measured by how many records you sell it’s simply being happy. Brandy had all that the new generation of singers have today and on top of that a ground-breaking show that no one can take away from her. It’s time we realize that just because you are not in the public eye everyday doesn’t mean your loyal fans turn their backs on you.

    The problem is Brandy CAN sing her ass off. They don’t want real talent. Beyonce can sing, but truth be told she needs to prep before hand. All those high notes she tries to reach sounds terrible..please see “Ave Maria” Also Beyonce does nothing but shake her cakes. I mean where is the talent in that.

    I watched a youtube video when Brandy was talking to a few fans. One of them asked her to sing part of a song and this b**** sang the verse and kept on talking. I mean Bey Bey and Rih Rih couldn’t do that. The girl is bad.

    Lady Gaga can sing if she is sitting down and not doing the damn shuffle with bubbles all around her. But she sounds terrible live. I am a Lady gaga fanatic but she can’t sing live. That’s why she got shafted on her grammy’s.

    Brandy is a singer and actress.
    Beyonce is an entertainer
    Lady Gaga is an entertainer and a basket case (but I love her)
    Rihanna is a trainwreck.

    I am tryna figure out what is the purpose for making an entire article dedicated to asking what is wrong with Brandy’s career. If you have lived under a rock this year, then U haven’t noticed that she is doing big things with Timbaland on his current Shock Value 2 album under her rapping alter-ego “bran’Nu”. And as far as I have seen, people are recieving her very well she has done a number of shows in the past couple months promoting and looking hella s*** as well. She has an upcoming reality show in vh1 which she said in an interview with trueexclusives is gonna chronicle her during the recording process of her new album. If you look at someone like Monica who was also big in the 1990’s, U will see that her album sales haven’t been up to par what so ever. But she is still making music and at least in the game trying. Brandy is doing the same. There are new artists now in the 2000’s and Brandy is a veteran, still making moves. Get with it thatgrapejuice

    Bran Bran is a melodic beast which is underappreciated in this era of the music industry.
    I do think her album was way to slow overall.

    2nd single choice on last album nutralized her big time.
    Piano man was really the obvious choice just to bring tempo and a R&B feel back on her, but it never happened.

    It’s real funny because before the album i was hearing loads of unreleased tracks like Honey, Sweet Nothings, Dig This. These song got me super hyped especially Sweet Nothings cus i like that sound with her tone and vocal abiltities regarding harmonies and riffs.

    I hope she has more club friendly songs cus that’s what Brandy always usually brings to the table and Human didn’t quite have that blend dispite being an album with loads of songs.

    There is still a lane for Bran Bran, she just gotta blend the theme of the album right with a less one dimentional approach which Human had.

    Her vocals are to good to be wasted not making music.

    Its this hip hop generation, they don’t know what real music is anymore. When u sit down and watch 106&Park and all that stuff you would think it was just a hip hop/rap show. You have so many R&B artist, to include Brandy, who are really good but not getting any recognition at all. They want the RiRi’s, Beyonce’s, and AKeys, but u can find much more talent/good songs, good music in the quality of music of some of these other R&B singers, but they are getting no airplay because all these radio guys are afraid of loosing their young audience.

    Many users have good points here.

    Brandy needs to/ do big things, in term of show/video/image.

    She has to surprise the audience now.

    We have to remember that the young audience dont know Brandy yet. So she needs to make music that young audience can love too…. something catchy, s*** and funny. Thats really important in today’s music.

    At the same time, many people dont even know Right here yet, why?…. promotion.

    Her promotion hasnt been good enough. Epic has its fault, Im sure.

    Brandy never was on an Awards show in 2009.
    If she would have sung Right here on a big Awards Show, the single would have been on the top 10. It was a good single, and many non fans liked it, Im talking about some friends of mine.

    So…. See needs hotter music, hotter videos, hotter performances and a hotter image.

    She has to try to be a bigger entertainer. If she really try it, she will be on top again.

    oh, and Bran’Nu is a step on the good direction. so, she has to come biger this time.

    Couple points.

    1. It’s not over for Brandy. The success of Maxwell and Sade shows that there is a fanbase and sales for real music, however…

    2. Maxwell and Sade sustained a fanbase. Brandy has failed to do that. This is partly due to the nature of being a pop artist(who is checking for 98 Degrees of Mandy Moore anymore), but she could have avoided that fate. Brandy did not cultivate the fanbase to leave for a while and then come back. She also did not succesfully transition from teen artist to adult artist.

    3. The biggest problem facing Brandy is that she sort of faded away….Britney and Mariah were able to rely on the “comeback narrative” and had the media rooting for them. Brady never really had a catastrophic fall so she can’t rely on this.

    4. How does she fix this? Not reality shows. More acapella youtube videos, be an American Idol judge. Do something daring…what about a mainly acapella album? She has the talent she just needs to find a lane and master it.

SHE ONLY HAD ONE PRODUCER, RODNEY “DARKCHILD” JERKINS, WHO I LOVE BUT I DON’T THINK ANY ARTIST SHOULD EVER HAVE ONLY ONE PRODUCER! ALTHOUGH PEOPLE LIKE ME AND SOME OTHERS LOVED THE MUSIC ON THAT ALBUM, SHE ALSO MUST APPEAL TO OTHERS AS WELL BY CHOOSING VARIOUS PRODUCTION. AND I AM BY NO MEANS IMPLYING THAT SHE SHOULD DO THAT BUBBLE GUM, REPETITIVE, NON-QUALITY MUSIC!! CUZ I DO THINK THERE ARE SOME WRITERS AND PRODUCERS THAT CAN PRODUCE QUALITY MUSIC!!! AND SHE APPEARS ON TIMBALAND’S ALBUM (WHOSE ALBUM IS FIYAH BY THE WAY BUT IT FLOPPED LIKE CRAZY). THE SONGS THAT SHE’S ON ARE AWESOME AND HIS PRODUCTION COMPLIMENTS HER VOICE VERY WELL AND IT’S STILL QUALITY MUSIC! SHE HAS MENTIONED THAT HER NEXT ALBUM WILL INCLUDE TIMBALAND’S PRODUCTIONS, AND I CAN’T WAIT!!!!

    For all those people talking about how people don’t appreciate REAL music, the radio only promotes pop/dance songs, etc., how do explain Sade selling 500,000+ in her first week? For the 20+ years Sade has been inthe business, she doesn’t really change or conform to whatever’s on the radio (for God sakes she STILL rocks that same ponytail! lol). So those excuses don’t fly as to explain why Brandy is having trouble finding success in 2010. (Maybe she should ask Sade for the secret)

    Anywho, I think it’s not the quality of music that’s keeping Brandy (and a lot of others) down. I think it’s because they don’t promote ENOUGH. When Rihanna or Beyonce got an album coming out, them hoes make sure you can’t get away from they asses. They don’t release 2 singles and call it a day (typically they release the whole damn record and in Bey’s case, she also re-releases it in Spanish, Italian, Arabic, German and Ebonics). They don’t just sit on the couch at 106th & Park and think that’s enough. However, they DO network because them endorsements pay the bills and get your face out there. Maybe Brandy should work something out with her old affiliates at Covergirl.)

    Brandy needs to do what they do promotion wise or settle for the results she’s been getting. (Or perhaps she could get a reality show on BET seeing as they are giving those shows away like a BOGO event at Payless.) Just a thought.

    I respect your opinion, im not coming at you any type of way, but you cant compare Brandy and Sade. If your talking about sales, I don’t think that’s relevant.

    Look at it: Rihanna’s Rated R didn’t sell WELL the first week but she is in the SPOTLIGHT right now, so she’s considered “HOT” RIGHT NOW!! , But only for this period in music. People are getting it confused. Those who are in the spotlight right now will have their time when the spotlight fades, but that doesn’t mean their career is over. Some artists who aren’t in the spotlight right now are living well.

    Sade wasn’t dead broke–and decided to make a comeback. Some people do believe in taking breaks. Trust Brandy’s career isn’t over, no one knows what she does behind the scenes, that child is living WELL off her money from the 90’s going forward!

    All artists know that some day they will no longer be the most “hottest” artist. So they get it in while they can.

Brandy is one of most consistant artists when comes to her music she gonna have to step out the box and not in a sleazy way but in a way where the fans can have a piece of Brandy circa 1994 and bring into 2010.

    I think sometimes artists’ popularity just run their course. There isn’t always a detailed explanation. That doesn’t take away from their talent necessarily. Brandy is a very talented singer. There’s no denying that. But trends and styles change. The music industry is fickle. Sometimes that’s really all it is.

    Some of you people are hilarious. Just because someone doesn’t sing traditional r&b music mean its not “real music?” Get out of here with that mess. LMAO! Music always have and always will be subjective, which is why people have fans that are suppose to support their music.
    Typical r&b music is whats going to hold Brandy back if anything, because we all know that black people do not buy a lot of music. She tried to appeal to the masses with Human because it had a pop/r&b feel. It flopped because she’s boring and she still sound like she did 1996.

    I want to add one thing.

    Human sold aounr 75,000 copies on its first week on USA. while Brandy was out during a 4 years period.

    So now, with Brandy and Timbaland presenting her alter ego, Bran’Nu, with the tv show, and with a hotter first single, the album can easily sell 100,000 copies on its first week.

    Brandy will work with Akon, William and Danja for the new album….

    so Remember this:

    The new album will be a Hit.

    Time will tell.

    comment for BRANDY THE TRUTH

    Are you Nigerian cos that phrase “God forbid bad thing” is a typical Nigerian comment.
    anyways Brandy is the bomb, her voice still gives me chills. She is definitly not over. By the way i intend to buy her new moon album. I listened to it so much that i scratched the cd. and pls do not ever put brandy and beyonce in the same category. Apart from beyonce’s first album, i cannot sit thru and listen to an entire beyonce album, i dont know but her songs do not move me at all. i can bump them on the dance floor buts that just about it. Non of Beyonce’s songs inspires me in any way. this is not taking anything from beyonce cos she is a good entertainer.

    She’s not over- she’s only just turned 31 for gods sake!

    Her problem is the change in the industry- she was too young to carry over a secure fanbase ala whitney and Mariah and too old/ out of the game for too long to grab a younger base like ciara and bey.

    Don’t forget that Brandy has hit the top and sold a bucketload in the process- her and darkchild created a whole new sound with full moon- and she was close to recreating that with Afro…

    I think Epic played Human wrong with singles- Fall should have been released as a duet with Natasha Bedingfield at some point and Long Distance should have been left well alone.

    She should have done Oprah…

    She could have definintely hit Europe harder- with some promo like Kelly Rowland in the uk, she would have scored a top 5 hit with ‘Right Here’ easily.

    What next? I think she needs to target some different markets- Sweet Nothings proved she could do the alt dance thing, i would love to see her do some more features on other peoples material. Uk wise is would be great to see a collab with someone like Richard X, Dizzee Rascal or Xenomania… Groove Armada wanted to use her sample for ‘best Friend’ but was declined- its time to get more experimental

    US- well she is truly respected in the industry by all the big names, and all it takes is for one song to get you back out there. She had a hit with Kayne, are people trying to tell me that if she sang ‘American Boy’ it wouldn’t have been a smash? I love Estelle- but Brandy could have gone with that… same goes for Umbrella, Bleeding Love, When Love Takes Over, Halo… the list is endless. Its not always about the person- a hit is a hit

    What I’m trying to say is that all she needs is another hype song… if idiots like Ke$ha can top the charts then so can Brandy, a hit song is a hit song.

    People stopped paying attention to good quality music. THATs IT IN A NUT SHELL. It has nothing to do with anything else other than that. Brandy has consistantly delivered quality material since her debut album and continues to bring that fire. People want a half naked, half talented, half soul models turned singers or dancers turned singers instead of a true quadruple threat like Brandy; this girl acts, sings, writes her own songs for real, and is a savy business woman. Brandy is one of the better singers of my generation and I will BUY ALL of her music when its released as I always have because I know it will be worth it. Other artist I’d never buy because I know the quality of the music is going to be horrible i.e CI-ERROR.

    The only thing Brandy needs in the future when she releases new material is crazy, insane promotion, exactly like she had in the 1990s. I mean, really think about it, with each album after Never Say Never, Brandy promotion just hasn’t been the same. Basically in the 1990s, Brandy WAS (the) BEYONCE (who Bee is now,) in her own way of course.

    It’s no secret that Brandy still had literally millions of fans and hundreds of hardcore fans, and it’s evident that she still maintains the same talent the she had at the peak of her career, therefore major success again is definitely more than possible for Brandy. She doesn’t need to dress extra crazy or s***, she doesn’t need to change music styles, ans she doesn’t have to do a lot of dancing, all she needs is wickedly insane promotion. Brandy always effortlessly delivers wonderful music and with the right team, she’ll shine yet again.

    I LOVE YOU BRANDY!

    Brandys decline in music is a disrepectul way to describe her situation. The industry has changed so some in the last 10 years, and at a rapid pace too. Rather than remolding her talents to the current ‘nursery rymhing’ s*** tracks of todays industry, she has chosen to explore diffrent music influences but be herself. ( love Never say Never but album in the world) she knows all the s** sells s*** doesnt suit her, and chooses to keep things classy.
    So in one light. Brandy wants to stay true to herself, and not to sway to trendy one hit wonders. More power to her.

    Secondly. The way labels have treated her has always been questionable- EPIC didnt support her enough. So all this s*** about major televised performances is Fukries.
    That was prop the only time she got 2 singles from one album ever, besides full moon wher she was having her baby is fully understood. If the labels dont believe in you then theres no point and she proply recognises that, and wants to be more comfortable. But shes no fool. She knows she still got the talents, and her artistry is in its own lane and like others have said shes influence to those in the industry so i guess well soon see how far her ‘decline’ is still an issue!!!!

    Hopefully she gets a new label deal soon, a proper one thats going to support her and has a hit album this year. Personally I would love a few ‘First in Love’ big beat tracks, a little of her Bran Nu, she should also have a ‘Between You and Me’ ( the hits are quite big for a leaked track’ check it out on youtube and ofcourse we all want some of that SomeWhereOVer Rainbow Power and all,Cant Wait. Yall who dont support she go support her.! Peace

    Brandy is a artist that i’ve been listening to for years her music is untouchable she is one of the artist that does real R&B music she sings from the heart and soul. The reason why people don’t buy into her music because she don’t dance around half naked and her lable don’t push her music the way it should be put out there. Has long as Brandy puts out an album i will buy it because i know what i’m getting out of her music.

    whats goin in today’s R&B music world, is plain and simple…THERE’S NO OUTLET FOR TRUE R&B ARTIST!! Male or Female, it doesn’t matter. Today’s market is now ANYTHING but R&B. Take Toni Braxton for instance, shes a TALENTED and GREAT artist, and is even set due for a release of her new cd…but for the most part, your not hearing NOTHING about it! You know why? Cuz 1, the label has ALOT to do with the NON PROMOTION of the artist & 2, if you listen to whats “Hot” (as they so put it) on the radio, everything is starting to infused with HOUSE music. Im talking bout Deep House type stuff. Why do you think David Guetta is now producing and if not featuring on alot of new material that is coming from “R&B Artist”. Pretty soon Hip Hop artist are gonna jump on that same ban wagon. Music in general goes through a cycle. and it always repeats one way or another.
    Now back to Brandy, Her recent down fall was that she was being sewed from that car accident that took place a couple of years ago on the Hollywood freeway. After that got out to the public that she supposedly killed someone…people started to let go. But again, this is all my personal opinion….what do you think? DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH ANY OF THIS?

    The problem is Brandy changed her sound too much, she also decreased promotion of her and her music, she changed her image like for example people knew her for her braids… The major problems are that she changed her sound and she decreased promoting herself. She needs to come back with some classic songs what we felt like Have you ever, Baby, Wanna Be Down etc She needs songs that has the same feelings as
    Sittin Up in My Room and those other songs she did.. Ushers stuck with what people loved from him thats why he went on to continue the same amount or more success in the 00s as in the 90s.. I was born into Brandy’s music and I miss her Classic Sound and her music and her as an artist and person DRASTICALLY… GOOD LUCK TO HER!!

    She lost her sass, that’s what happened, and stopped releasing feel-good music. Songs like “Baby,” and “Sittin’ Up In My Room,” were fun songs that people…to this day…still like to jam to. However, after she released Never Say Never she decided that she needed to “express herself” instead of releasing music that people would enjoy, and decided to sing about nothing but her problems. For example, on the Afrodisiac album, the first song was called “Who I Am,” and that song is just too personal to put on a record…don’t nobody want to hear (let alone buy) an hour-long CD on which the vocalist does nothing but complain about her failed relationship, gush about her new one, and basically cry in her soup the whole time. Human was the same way…no sass, no fun. I mean, it was a good CD and I am a Brandy fan so I bought it, but its hard to get the general public to buy such a somber CD.

    Also, she should have learned that you cannot take long breaks from the public eye and expect to return almost half-a-decade later and still be relevant. In between her first and second album she had Moesha, endorsement deals with DKNY and Covergirl, and the Cinderella television special on ABC, so she was still in the spotlight in between 1995 and 1998, when she went back to making music. However, after Moesha was cancelled and the endorsement deals disappeared, she had nothing to keep her momentum going during her “breaks” after Never Say Never, which has also contributed to her lack of popularity since.

    Brandy can still bounce back, but for God’s sake, she needs to STOP SINGING ABOUT PERSONAL CRAP AND RELEASE SOME FUN MUSIC. GO BACK TO THE BRAIDS AND THE MUSIC THAT MADE HER FAMOUS IN THE FIRST PLACE. If she doesn’t, her career is history.

Remember, she was in the running with Monica at one time..unforturnantly, some people do fall short when life gets the best of you.

    However, if you are still in search of another great vocalist that is up and coming who’s music has spread to the UK and Japan areas and still spreading…

    I don’t think her career is over. I think music has changed alot, in the 90’s music was really good now it’s not. Brandy has a nice voice and it is pretty. Her voice is one of a kind not alot of people sound like her. I think everyone will have there moment no one will stay on top forever. There was a time when tlc and kris kross where every where now you don’t see them that much. There was a time when new kids on the block and milli vanilli where major stars and now you don’t see them. Everyone will have the re moment. I respect brandy she is classy and she is the most down to earth girl around. She will always be a star it just happens that things have changed. Brandy is not like these other girls out here she is not raunchy, and she is not over exposing her self. I don’t watch music videos but ocassionally when flipping chanels I see bits and pieces of some of these womens videos and it so disgusting and degrading.
