R&B star Brandy has certainly been a busy girl as of late.

While cooking up her hotly anticipated new album, the singer has returned to her former mainstay – acting. And in a big way.

With a pronounced (and recurring role) on season 5 of BET’s ‘The Game’, That Grape Juices Patrick B caught up with the stunner at the exclusive screening for show’s first episode in Los Angeles last night.

There, the 32 year old dished on her character (‘Chardonnay’), as well her new single and album, when we can expect them, and a whole lot more.

As ever, we ask the questions you really want answers to.

Your thoughts?

    I can’t wait for this girl to drop her album!!! She is putting her heart and soul into it, can’t wait who she will have on the album and the tracks. I hope she did a song with my boy Ne-yo and my girl Monica also, they both have wicked chemistry when they do a track together, real talent right there. Can’t wait Brandy!!!

    Okay, well I’ve never been a fan of Brandy or her music…I prefer Monica…but commercial R&B needs to come back to prominence, so for THAT reason (and that reason alone) I hope the album actually does well. Hopefully in 2012 a new wave of mainstream R&B will emerge and end this terrible era of dance/pop and hipster/pop that’s been ruining everything these past 3 or 4 years.

    So for THAT reason, I’m not gonna hate on Brandy.

    I’m glad she knows what she’s got to do to make a REAL comeback. You have to remind the world why they fell in love with you for you to comeback and be relevant.

    2012 sees the return of “REAL TALENT!”

    Brandy, Monica, Christina, Mariah, JoJo, Pink the list goes on…

    It’ll be amazing to see all my favs return to the top of the charts and give them manufactured gimmicks a run for their money which is what’s lacking these days on the charts.

    Do you honestly think you’d see Rihanna, Gaga, and Katy dominating the charts if they had REAL competition?

    Her reaction to the question of the 1st single seems like the label may have chosen not to use that one song as the 1st single? She seems to be still looking for that song, finalizing what to put out 1st.

    @ Brutally Honest-

    Is that really your argument honey? Obviously you missed it when I said “My favs”…

    Like I said, what’s missing these days in the industry is real competition and that’s why Rihanna, Gaga, and Katy have all become very successful with getting #1 songs. They don’t have any REAL competition.
